So, when going through a dental extraction, we understand that it’s maybe not your first choice on what you wanted to do that day. We’re going to make the process as comfortable as possible, whether it’s a cushy blanket or putting on some Netflix above you while we’re working. Our caring dental assistants will be right there to help you through the procedure. I pride myself on good anesthesia in our office, so I want to make sure you’re feeling as little to nothing as possible during an important procedure like that.
Once the tooth is removed, we’ll give you all the necessary instructions to make sure that you heal up well as well, make sure you’re comfortable during and after the procedure. And then, when we’re all healed up, we’ll start talking about some of the best options for replacing that tooth because a lot of patients, in past times, removed a tooth and did not replace it. These days, we have excellent ways to make sure we get that tooth back in your mouth so that we’re functioning the way we need to.
Our team stays up-to-date on the most advanced dental technologies and techniques. We will consider every possibility for repairing and preserving your tooth before removing it. If extraction is necessary, however, you can expect:
- Relaxing oral sedation with a small pill, if needed
- Compassionate and caring treatment from the moment you enter our office
- A complimentary snack and drink if desired
- Spacious patient treatment rooms stocked with blankets and pillows for your comfort
- Ceiling-mounted TVs and headphones to help you tune out what’s going on around you
Potential Reasons For Removing a Tooth
Dr. Wallin has encountered just about every situation you can think of when it comes to tooth extractions. Every patient and every issue is unique, but there are several common reasons to remove teeth, including:
- Severe tooth decay or tooth infection that cannot be remedied with root canal therapy
- Advanced periodontal disease that cannot be reversed with gum disease treatment
- Making room for dentures or other tooth replacement options
- Improving orthodontic treatment results by removing particular problem teeth
- Dental emergencies like severe fractures and broken teeth
- A very loose tooth that cannot be secured
- Wisdom teeth removal if wisdom teeth become impacted or cause other problems
Afterward, we will give you simple directions to help speed your healing process. Then, during follow-ups, we can discuss your tooth replacement options. Replacing missing teeth will help prevent your other teeth from drifting out of alignment.
