Pain-Free Extractions Put You at Ease
Permanent teeth should last a lifetime. The unfortunate reality is that they oftentimes don’t. Whether stemming from poor dietary choices and oral health care, disease, or traumatic injury, extractions are a necessary part of life for many people. Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry specializes in tooth extraction, among many other services. The most common reason for the need for tooth extraction is when the tooth becomes so badly damaged that removal is the only viable solution for repair. Gum disease in particular can loosen or severely damage a tooth, leading to the need for extraction, according to WebMD.
Other situations that require extraction include:
- An over-crowded mouth
- Infection from decay or damage
- Periodontal disease
What to Expect
Luckily, the dentists here at Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry are experts at extractions, working hard to ensure the process goes as smoothly and as pain-free as possible. First off, you will make a special appointment to come in for the tooth extraction. Allow about an hour for the total visit just in case. The actual process is relatively quick but prep time and after-care can take awhile.
The method of pain-free extraction we use will depend on the severity of your specific case. Our dentists will talk with you in-depth about which option is best. There are two options available to you. We can inject the area with a numbing agent so you don’t feel any pain. However, you will likely feel a bit of pressure or tugging. The other option is sedation if the situation calls for it, which involves one of three things: nitrous oxide, conscious oral sedation or IV sedation. All three are designed to help extremely nervous patients relax during the procedure. The sedation option is ideal for those with a low pain tolerance, fear of the dentist, strong gag reflexes, physical disabilities or for those in need of major dental procedures.
What Sets Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry Apart?
When you come to Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry for extraction, our whole team will set your mind at ease and make you feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Radhika Wadhwa and Dr. Vikram Gandhi are highly talented and skilled at extracting teeth; however, they know that removal of even just one tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, jaw joints, and shifting teeth. All of these things can have a major impact on your dental health. As part of our total care commitment, our dentists will discuss the options available to you when it comes to replacing extracted teeth with implants, bridges, or removable partials.
