Tooth Pain and Tooth Extractions
If you have tooth pain, it may seem like the best solution is to remove the tooth. In most cases, however, it is better to preserve the natural tooth. Dr. Sheen can do this with treatments like a root canal or restorative dentistry.
If a tooth extraction is needed, Dr. Sheen will also recommend replacement options for the missing tooth. Replacing the tooth will help to preserve bone structure, promote better gum health and prevent remaining teeth from shifting. The best option for missing teeth is dental implants. The dental implant procedure is long but will offer the most long term benefits. Dentures or dental bridges are also an option. Learn about dental implants vs dentures.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Sheen can make a referral for a local oral surgeon. The first step is to make an appointment with Dr. Sheen for a consultation. We will examine the teeth and take any necessary x-rays or other imaging. If Dr. Sheen determines that the wisdom teeth should be extracted, he will make the referral and see you post-op for follow up examinations.
