After a patient’s tooth is extracted, it's not uncommon for the bone that previously supported the tooth to weaken and fade away. This can lead to gaps forming between the teeth, or the teeth becoming misaligned. At Poulos & Somers, we perform socket preservations with extractions to keep your mouth healthy. Keeping the bone strong is important because it helps you avoid more dental health issues in the future, it ensures that your mouth will be healthy enough to support a replacement tooth.

At Poulos and Somers, we pride ourselves on changing the way tooth extractions have traditionally been done. If an extraction is necessary, we will very carefully and painlessly remove your tooth from its socket without damaging any adjacent teeth or supporting bone. During treatment, one of our specialists will make a small incision into your gum in order to access the affected tooth. We use a localized anesthetic to ensure a pain-free procedure, and the site of your extraction should be healed within two weeks.
If you have a damaged or infected tooth, our team can help with a skillful, gentle surgical extraction. We take the time and care to preserve the bone left behind to ensure optimal dental health, and you’ll be comfortable throughout your treatment.
