At the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley, we have earned a reputation of excellence among our patients by providing exemplary patient care at every visit. We prioritize your comfort, keeping pace with advanced approaches to provide a more relaxing dental healthcare experience. We strive to provide stress-free solutions for all your dental needs, including Penfield extractions. When you visit us for your extraction, our experienced, compassionate team of professionals utilizes leading-edge techniques to help you feel at ease, and keeps you informed throughout the process.
Typically, when a tooth has been severely damaged due to injury or decay, we do everything we can to treat it and maintain it in the dental arch. When a tooth is non-restorable, it may need to be extracted in order to preserve the health of the adjacent teeth, surrounding tissues and supporting bone structure. Wisdom teeth that are impacted or poorly positioned may require Penfield extractions in order to prevent infection, bite problems and oral pain. In some cases, a baby tooth that is reluctant to fall out on its own may benefit from an extraction, to make room for the permanent tooth to erupt in its place. Whatever the reason for needing an extraction may be, we perform a comprehensive examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed, to determine the most effective, conservative approach to care. We also offer safe and controlled sedation techniques to help you feel deeply relaxed throughout your extraction, and address all your concerns to help you make the most informed decisions regarding treatment. We will also discuss your options for replacing your extracted tooth, if needed. Our office offers aesthetically pleasing and functional options for the replacement of missing teeth, including dental implants, fixed bridges and dentures.
You want to make sure that your Penfield extractions are tailored to meet your individual needs, and at the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley you can rest assured that you will receive the personalized, compassionate treatment you deserve. We are committed to the highest quality care. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
