One of the most dreaded dental procedures for patients is having a tooth pulled or extracted. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear. However, at Darrow Dental, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. Dr. Marino is a highly experienced Akron oral surgeon who specializes in tooth extractions as well as dental implants and will be sure to make your entire experience in tooth extraction and replacement is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.

There are several reasons why a tooth may have to be extracted. Of course, Dr. Marino will make every effort to repair and restore your tooth. However, sometimes an extraction is unavoidable. This may be due to sever tooth damage or trauma. For example, teeth affected by advanced gum (periodontal) disease may need to be pulled. Malpositioned or nonfunctioning teeth may need to be extracted by your dentist in order to avoid possible complications that may result in an eventual, negative impact on your oral teeth. For orthodontic treatment, such as braces, teeth may need to be extracted to make space for improved teeth alignment. Also, extra teeth, also referred to as supernumerary teeth, will be pulled so that they don’t block other teeth from erupting. Teeth are pulled either by simple extraction, which are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, or by surgical extraction. Once the tooth is extracted, however, you may very well be interested in replacing it. An option for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. These are titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in your jaw to serve as an artificial tooth root. This method allows us to avoid placing a dental bridge, which can weaken the adjacent natural teeth. Since dental implants are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and since they do not alter the structure and integrity of the adjacent teeth, an implant it the next best thing to your natural tooth.

If it is decided that your tooth is beyond repair and restoration, then a tooth extraction may be the best option to ensure your oral health. Regardless of the exact reason for you tooth extraction, Darrow Dental is highly experienced in both simple and surgical extractions as well as dental implants. This ensures the entire form, function, and beauty of your mouth is taken care of, from extraction to replacement. So whether you require Akron oral surgery to remove a tooth, to replace a tooth, (or both!) please call our office or consult our website for more information.

Basically, anyone who has teeth can get a cavity, and cavities and dental decay are among the most common health problems. Cavities develop into very small openings or holes, and damage areas in the hard surface of your teeth permanently. Cavities are caused by various issues, including teeth not being cleaned thoroughly, bacteria in your mouth, snacking too often, and drinking beverages with too much sugar. Our Akron Ohio dentist, and our dedicated staff at Darrow Dental, like to educate all our patients on the importance of proper oral hygiene and the consequences of some cavities and dental decay.

If cavities are not treated in a timely manner, they only get larger and soon affect the deeper layers of your teeth. These untreated cavities may also lead to infection, severe toothache, and loss of your tooth. In order to prevent cavities, our Akron Ohio dentist can’t stress enough how important regular dental visits are, as well as good brushing and flossing habits. Depending on the location and extent of decay, your symptoms will vary. Some signs to look out for are toothache, sensitivity or sharp pain when eating sweets or something hot or cold, pain when biting down, visible holes in your teeth, or any discharge around teeth or gums. There may be no symptoms at all when a cavity is new but our dentist might be able to see the start of decay, then recommend the proper treatment to prevent it from getting worse.

When our recommended treatment calls for a filling, we offer several options, depending on how severe the cavity is, and the cosmetic goal you want to achieve. The most modern dental fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds and look very much like your natural teeth. These compounds, also called composite resins, are mostly used on your front teeth where you really want the look to be more natural. Depending on the extent of tooth decay, and its location, these fillings can also be used on your back teeth. Our Akron Ohio dentist is dedicated to making your smile whiter longer, and our in-office care, combined with your daily dental hygiene routine, should keep your cavities in check and your teeth their healthiest.
