So sometimes, a tooth is very infected, you've broken most of the tooth off to the gumline, or there's just not enough to restore the tooth properly. And that's when you need to have tooth removal, which is also called an extraction. Pretty scary process for a patient to go through. In their minds, but we have various options to have, we can relax you, we have sedation where you won't remember any of this procedure. But we walk you through it, take the tooth out and proceed to restore the tooth with one of our many options.
Fortunately, you’re in good hands! Several of our dentists have extensive experience with oral surgery, including tooth extractions. If one or more of your teeth need to go, we can extract them as quickly and painlessly as possible. We can even remove problematic wisdom teeth!
Dental Sedation to Soothe You
Getting a tooth removed might make you more nervous than a routine dental treatment! But our compassionate team can ease your dental anxiety and make you comfortable. We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you won’t feel pain, and our dentists use the latest technologies and techniques for your tooth extraction.
If you’re still nervous, we offer multiple types of dental sedation. Whether you receive inhaled sedation for a mild euphoria, a heavier oral sedative, or IV sedation, you’ll stay calm and relaxed throughout your procedure.
Why Extract a Tooth?
Here are some situations in which you may need to get a tooth removed:
- If infection begins destroying your teeth, and we can’t perform a root canal
- When wisdom teeth are impacted and/or painful
- If fixing a damaged tooth is less reliable than extracting and replacing it
- To prepare your mouth for dentures, orthodontics, or other treatments
Replacing Your Tooth After Extraction
If you don’t replace a missing tooth, you risk negatively impacting your overall oral health. You can choose from multiple tooth replacement options at Stonecreek Dental Care, including:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
