Extractions Can Save Teeth

Tooth extractions are needed in a variety of situations, the most common being infection, severe decay, or orthodontic problems. If a tooth is dying and cannot be saved, we recommend having it removed. In some cases, teeth need to be removed for better alignment of your smile. In all cases, we will do our best to save any teeth that can be saved. However, sometimes tooth extractions are simply necessary to improve oral health.

The Extraction Process

The tooth extraction process at our office is fairly simple. Routine situations can be handled with just some local anesthesia so that you will not feel anything. We first gently loosen the tooth. Then, we carefully extract it using special tools. And that’s it! Most of the time, it’s a straightforward process that can be completed in just one office visit.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Are you having trouble with your wisdom teeth? Wisdom teeth often need to be removed for different reasons than other teeth. Wisdom teeth often become impacted or have severe developmental problems. When they endanger the health of your smile or cause you pain, they should be removed. If you are experiencing any issues at all with these third molars, please contact our team.

Wisdom teeth extractions are a little bit more complicated than traditional extractions. However, how it is done entirely depends on the specific circumstance. Many times, wisdom teeth need to be surgically removed.

Tooth Extractions Aren’t Painful

While many people think that tooth extractions are painful, stressful procedures, they really aren’t! We use a local anesthetic combined with any dental sedation you may want to make sure you remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure. Choose from nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation to help you relax as well. Tooth extractions can be easy. Let our skilled team help you have a positive experience.
