Tooth Extractions - Lyons Dental

Elegance. Exquisite. Excellence.

Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is removed it is called a tooth extraction (also known as pulling a tooth). Tooth extractions often become necessary when there is tooth decay, gum disease or there is trauma to the mouth.

When possible, it is usually preferred to restore a tooth with a filling, crown or root canal first. However, tooth extractions are sometimes the best option.

Extractions are nothing to be embarrassed about; According to NIH, Adults in the United States age 20-64 have an average of 3.28 decayed or missing permanent teeth. Additionally, there are options such as bridges and implants, which can be performed after an extraction, and help from both a health and aesthetic standpoint.

Common Extractions

If a tooth must be extracted, we’ll make the process as comfortable as possible by administering an anesthetic. Lyons Dental will do everything possible to make the experience as painless as possible and provide instructions for quick healing and to prevent future complications.

Surgical Extractions

Surgical extractions are sometimes necessary for teeth that must be removed but cannot easily be accessed by the dentist. This includes situations where there is a broken or cracked tooth, or when a tooth is partially below the gum line (impacted). Like common extractions, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to make you comfortable during the procedure.

Wisdom Teeth

Most people have wisdom teeth but can’t keep them clean or don’t have room in their mouths for their wisdom teeth to completely break through their gums. Sometimes, wisdom teeth can partially break through, leaving a small space for decay to set in. Tooth decay can infect the tooth and surrounding areas, and often causes substantial pain. This is often referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.

In some more complicated cases, patients may be referred to another oral surgeon who specializes in wisdom teeth extractions. In these situations, Lyons Dental will do our best to help ease the pain, and provide a referral to a trusted oral surgeon in the area.

How Do I know What Type of Dentistry is Right For Me?

Making a decision concerning something that defines who you are to many the first time they see you can be intimidating and confusing. Dr. John-Varghese will walk you step by step through the decision process helping you understand every aspect.

CEREC Crowns or Just a Filling
Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC® for short is a new state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. This new technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations such as crowns and veneers for patients so that there is no longer a wait between preparing the restoration and finally receiving the finished product.
Dental Sealant or General Cleaning
Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces. The majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
The procedure is simple. It begins with short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.
We then apply the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel, which is designed to be used specifically with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up any stains and discoloration.

  • During this time you can relax.
  • The gel is applied for 3-4 fifteen minute sessions, for a total treatment time of 45-60 minutes.
  • Finally, you go home with your brighter, whiter smile. We also provide you with touch-up trays so you can maintain your new smile.
Dental Implant Restoration
During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.

Your dentist can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root. After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable your dentist to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.

Vaneers and Laminates

Veneers and Laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.
