Using modern dental technologies and techniques we are able to comfortably remove teeth that are beyond saving. When extraction is necessary, our team will be ready to plan for the next steps towards smile restoration.
When people talk about being afraid of the dentist, extraction is one procedure that comes to mind. Today’s improved dental technologies make extractions less traumatic than ever. Since we can, if needed, use sedation, even the timidest patient can rest assured we will do everything to make your extraction as comfortable as possible.
Extractions are necessary for teeth that have decayed, or been damaged through trauma, past the point of being saved. In these cases, once a tooth is extracted, patients often feel immediate relief from symptoms they may have experienced for months or even years. Your reluctance may, in fact, be the worst of the whole procedure. They are over quickly and heal within a matter of days
Extraction is typically called for in cases where disease, trauma, or crowding are an issue. It may also be necessary to extract teeth to make room for dental anchors, or dentures. In most cases, healthy teeth will be saved when possible. Our staff will go over the need for extraction and any issues specific to your case with you.
Our staff will go over the post extraction regimen with you. It is likely to include avoiding very hot and very cold food and beverages, keeping the extraction site packed and clean and instructions for pain medications you can take. Written instructions are sent home with each patient to make recovery as simple as possible.
