Durango Dentistry offers the full spectrum of dental procedures, including oral surgery in Durango, Colorado. When removing teeth, Dr. Greg Mann and Dr. Ross Owens will perform one of two types of extractions. The first type, a closed extraction, is a simple procedure that does not require any surgical incisions. The second type, an open extraction, does require surgical incisions and the tooth to be broken into pieces for easier removal. As with all of our treatments, we will make sure you understand all of the risks and costs involved before moving forward. There are several reasons to have a tooth removed, and many of them are straightforward procedures.
If you have a crowded smile or wisdom teeth growing in, our dentist may recommend the removal of one or more teeth to allow for proper spacing. Because the teeth are so close together, there is a higher chance of insufficient cleaning, which can lead to tooth decay and infection. In other instances, a tooth will be so severely damaged or decayed that no restorative procedure will repair the tooth. In order to prevent any further harm, Dr. Greg Mann and Dr. Ross Owens will remove the tooth. Additionally, our team at Durango Dentistry will remove baby teeth to allow permanent teeth to grow in.
