At the office of Goldwater Dental, we aim to preserve your natural, healthy teeth. Sometimes, in order to do this, we need to remove the severely decayed or unhealthy teeth to protect the other teeth from being affected. This is done by means of tooth extractions that are performed under the effect of local anesthesia for your comfort. We also offer sedation dentistry in the form of laughing gas and oral sedatives to make the procedure anxiety-free. Our office also offers state-of-the-art amenities such as access to Netflix, soothing music and comforting blankets and pillows to help you stay at ease during your treatment.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- Baby Teeth: When a baby tooth is not lost in the right sequence or is out of position, it can interfere with the eruption of the permanent tooth below it. Removing the baby tooth in these cases can prevent the need for orthodontic treatment later.
- Orthodontic Treatment: If you have crowded teeth, then extracting one or more teeth can create an appropriate amount of space allowing remaining teeth to align properly.
- Trauma or Disease: When dental treatments and restorations are not enough to save a tooth affected by disease or trauma, the tooth can be extracted and replaced with a prosthetic tooth.
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Removal of impacted wisdom teeth can prevent them from causing damage to nearby healthy teeth, bone, blood vessels, gum tissue and nerves.
The Process of Tooth Extraction
Before extracting your tooth, we will take X-rays to understand the exact position of the root and the condition of the bone around the tooth. Local anesthesia is given to numb the area, and the tooth is carefully removed.
