We Use Patient-Friendly Technology for Trouble-Free Extractions
Dr. John Tripp uses a panoramic X-ray to plan your tooth extraction. Unlike traditional X-rays, which offer small views of your mouth, a panoramic X-ray shows your entire mouth, including:
- All of your teeth
- Your upper and lower jaws
- Your nasal area and sinuses
This reveals problems like bone abnormalities, impacted teeth, infections, or cysts that could otherwise complicate your extraction. The best time to find out about possible complications is before your procedure starts! We don’t have to put anything in your mouth for panoramic X-rays. You just relax as the machine rotates around your head and does its work.
We Care for You After Your Tooth Extraction
When you lose teeth, either by accident or extraction, your bone under that tooth will shrink. This loss of bone mass can lead to further tooth loss, which we never want to happen to you! We can preserve the sockets of your extracted teeth using bone growth supplements that Dr. Tripp places directly into the socket. This is ideal for patients who plan to get a dental implant or a dental bridge once healing has completed.
