Although tooth extraction should always be considered a last resort, it may become necessary to address serious health issues such as severe tooth decay or infection that cannot be resolved through procedures like root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings. Additionally, extraction may be required before cosmetic procedures or in cases where there is insufficient space for all the teeth. Our team utilizes state-of-the-art digital imaging technology to make informed decisions regarding whether extraction is the best option for you.
We recognize that tooth extraction can be a stressful and anxiety-inducing procedure, which is why we offer sedation options to ensure your comfort. Modern anesthetics and sedatives have made the process less painful than ever before, with minimal bleeding and discomfort. After the procedure, you may need to take antibiotics to prevent infection, and it's important to take care of the wound by avoiding smoking, aggressive brushing, and using straws when drinking liquids to promote proper healing.
