To provide you with a smile that is vibrant and healthy, surgical tooth extractions may play an important role in your overall dental care.
There are numerous circumstances that may warrant the extraction of a tooth, from accidental injuries to orthodontic challenges. Below, you’ll find some examples of the most common scenarios for which a tooth extraction might typically be recommended:
- When a tooth is irreparably damaged
- When the teeth are excessively crowded
- When the presence of the tooth is found to limit or slow down the success of ideal orthodontic treatment
- When the tooth is impacted, such as a wisdom tooth that is bound by gum tissue or bone
- In preparation for restorative procedures, such as the placement of dental implants
To ensure that you receive high-quality care that is consistent and accurate, our team will work together with you and your referring dentist throughout the tooth extraction process. This close cooperation may include conferences and correspondence between the doctors, shared access to clinical findings, and digital x-ray imaging.
After an initial consultation, we will provide state-of-the-art surgical care in our specialized clinical suite. We will administer dental sedation and/or anesthesia utilizing the method that is most appropriate for you. Our sedation dentistry offerings include local anesthetics, laughing gas (nitrous oxide), and intravenous (IV) sedation. While you are in our care, our goal is to ensure that you feel at ease by eliminating discomfort and anxiety.
