Extraction from the Experts

Is It Time for a Tooth Extraction?

Infected, damaged teeth can cause pain so severe that eating, drinking, and even sleeping become a challenge. Although we always recommend saving natural teeth, if a tooth is unsalvageable, we advise a tooth extraction in Carbondale, IL to save your overall health. Left in place, a sick tooth can compromise the surrounding teeth, bone, and gums and cause lasting pain. With expertise developed through years of additional training after dental school, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Billy Laun and Dr. Frederick Gustave, are considered experts in tooth extractions and complete over 5,000 extractions every year. Using state-of-the-art technology, we not only provide a comfortable surgical experience but can also replace your extracted tooth with a natural-looking dental implant. If you’re looking for a trusted team for your tooth extraction, see ours that can provide the complete care you need for a functional, lasting, and healthy smile.

Find Relief—and an Opportunity

Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at our surgical office in Carbondale, IL. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering anesthesia so you will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth.

With our training, we’ll be able to remove the cause of your pain and provide a new source of confidence with a dental implant in just one appointment. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth to avoid complications and ensure a swift and easy recovery!

Choose the Permanent Upgrade

Except for wisdom teeth, we frequently recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants. The removal of even a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown).

This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. Receiving this care from a surgical specialist with expert training in dental implants, you will likely be able to have a dental implant placed in the same visit as your tooth extraction. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
