At our dental practice, Michael Barmé DDS, our goal is to always to save the tooth. However, there are some times when our dentist in Anaheim CA, Dr. Michael Barmé, needs to perform a tooth extraction.

At our dental practice, our dentist in Anaheim CA, can perform either a simple or surgical tooth extraction while our patient remains perfectly comfortable due to our use of local anesthesia. When wisdom teeth are extracted, they do not need to be replaced. However, if a different tooth needs to be extracted, we can replace the missing tooth with a dental implant. There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted. It is common for teeth to be extracted when orthodontic work is being performed in order to make room for teeth to be moved into their proper positions. However, with interceptive orthodontic care on patients under age 11, these tooth extractions are required less often. Wisdom teeth commonly need to be extracted because they often encounter problems when trying to erupt. This is because the wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to come in, and there often is no room left for this to occur. As a result, wisdom teeth can become impacted, or experience different problems when trying to erupt. Sometimes wisdom teeth will arrive part way and then simply stop. This leaves a gap between the tooth and the gums, which creates a perfect area for materials to gather and for infection to form. If wisdom teeth are infected, painful, or causing any problem in the mouth, it is generally recommended that they are extracted since they are not needed for chewing or for clear speech. If a tooth is decayed to the point that it can no longer be saved, tooth extraction is also necessary. Tooth extraction may also be necessary if a tooth is cracked and the crack reaches below the gum line.

If you need to see our dentist in Anaheim CA for a tooth extraction, or any other type of dental care, contact our office for an appointment.

Dental Implant Restoration in Norwalk CA

If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Michael Barmé DDS, our expert implant and restorative dentist is Dr. Michael Barmé. Many patients come to see our dentist to get Norwalk CA implants because dental implants look, feel, and function just like regular teeth.

When a patient comes to our practice to get dental implants, they may be getting dental implants to replace a single tooth, or they may be getting dental implants to anchor dentures which may shift when they talk or chew. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, and will help the jawbone to remain healthy. This is because the dental implant titanium root will keep the jawbone from atrophying where there is a missing tooth. This will allow the jawbone to remain healthy and keep your facial appearance more youthful. When our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, he will then proceed to surgically implant a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a waiting period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will completely fuse to the jawbone. Once this is completed, our dentist will permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant. At this point your dental implant restoration is completed and you will be able to once again eat, smile, and speak with total confidence. Your Norwalk CA implants should last you a lifetime as long issue make sure to regularly brush and floss your teeth at home, and come to our dental practice for periodic dental cleanings.
