At Seaman Family Dentistry in Lenexa, Ks we try to save teeth rather than extract (remove) them. In many cases, even teeth which are broken to the gumline can be saved with restorative treatments, such as root canals and crowns.
However, there are some cases when it is impossible or impractical to restore a tooth and then a tooth extraction is necessary. Dr. Robert Seaman is not an oral surgeon, so there are some situations when he will refer you to a specialist for the removal of a tooth or teeth. This is definitely the case with impacted wisdom teeth and most other wisdom tooth removals.
If you believe you need a tooth extracted, please contact us to schedule an examination and x-rays, then Dr. Robert Seaman can discuss your situation and the best course of action.
Below are some helpful videos about tooth extractions and replacing missing teeth after a tooth or teeth have been removed.
