Tooth pain. There are few sensations that make you feel more miserable or helpless. You can’t eat or drink. You have difficulty sleeping. Tooth decay is often the cause of this discomfort. We always do everything we can to repair and preserve a decayed tooth. Sometimes we can simply clear the cavity of decay and provide a filling to restore normal sensation and health to your tooth. There are times, however, when the tooth decay is so extensive that the tooth cannot be saved. In these cases, tooth extractions become necessary. Should you need any tooth extractions, count on Dr. Jason White and the Dental Care of Franklin team to provide them with the utmost compassion and concern for your comfort. Don’t put up with tooth pain for another day—contact us here at our Franklin, TN office for an appointment. Dr. White will diagnose your tooth pain and determine if tooth extractions are the right solution for you.
Missing teeth can be a blemish on an otherwise beautiful smile. Sure, you’ll no longer suffer from tooth pain, but when there are gaps in the front of your mouth, they can not only make you feel self-conscious, they can compromise your ability to eat and speak comfortably. What’s more, the jawbone underneath the area where you’ve had tooth extractions can begin to deteriorate and recede without healthy tooth roots to support it, and normal chewing to stimulate it and keep it strong. Dental implants are a durable and long-lasting substitute to your natural teeth that look, feel, and function just like the real thing. Dr. White can generally perform tooth extractions and place implants during the same visit to our Franklin, TN office! Ask for a complimentary dental implant consultation today.
