Tooth Extractions

Although Dr. Neumann and his team always work to maintain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible, sometimes the best treatment option requires the removal of one or more of your teeth. When injury or disease dictates that extraction is the best plan, we can perform the procedure gently and safely in our office, then provide you with the ongoing treatment to complete your beautiful smile again.

Q: How can losing a back tooth affect my smile?

A: Losing a back tooth will darken your overall smile, making it look smaller and narrower. Your smile will appear to stop short, and the look will be exaggerated if your missing tooth has teeth on both sides of it. Function during chewing will be reduced and function of many teeth can be affected by losing just one tooth. When you are missing a tooth, you compensate by chewing differently, putting pressure on different parts of your mouth. This can cause your other teeth to shift, creating gaps and spaces and may even cause fractures that result in additional tooth loss or the need for restorations.

Q: What are my options to replace a missing tooth?

A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and restore your smile back its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, Dr. Neumann places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

A number of painful and lasting problems can occur due to the arrival of wisdom teeth. Perhaps you’ve been putting off their removal due to worries about the procedure. However, with today’s advanced dental technology, this procedure has been improved to maximize your comfort and speed along your recovery time.

In most cases, your recovery from wisdom tooth extraction will only last a few days. Your Neumann Family Dentistry team will provide you with detailed information on what to expect during your recovery, and you will be prescribed medication to manage any pain.

I am a new patient here and just had my wisdom teeth out. Dr. Neumann explained everything I needed to know before and after the procedure. He and his staff are very friendly and courteous. Will definitely be going back. I’m so glad my friend recommended this office to me.
