If a Tooth Has To Go, We Can Gently Extract It
When we have a patient who comes in and they know that they've got a bad tooth that needs to come out, a really simple and very easy procedure here at our office. We're very good about helping patients not make a big deal out of something that really shouldn't be. It's something we see every day here in our office. We're well equipped to have a patient in, sometimes without notice, and to be able to have a private area to go through the procedure, come in and be done with the surgery part of the procedure, and to go home, all within the hour. Very quick, very painless. Patients don't feel anything during the procedure and really, always an opportunity to impress a patient because having a tooth removed, if you have a painful tooth or a broken tooth that you know needs to come out, usually patients think that that's going to be a big procedure. It's a great opportunity to show our patients how easy dentistry is nowadays, and how that they can have that surgical procedure here in our office and be in and out within an hour.
Our Spring, TX family dentist office can extract any tooth, even your wisdom teeth, and preserve the health of your mouth. Call Texas Dental Group at 832-791-1706 to schedule a gentle tooth extraction and head off further dental damage.
We’re Gentle With Extractions
Dr. Nathan Memmott will make sure you’re numb before removing your tooth. If your tooth is impacted (hasn’t completely erupted from your gums), we can still handle just about any case in our office. We may even be able to remove more than one tooth at a time
Sedation may be provided so you can remain comfortable throughout your treatment. You get a choice of two dental sedation options:
- Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”
- Prescription pill, for a deeper state of relaxation
Our Care Continues After the Tooth Extraction
Afterward, Dr. Memmott will walk you through any aftercare steps you need to take. We will also discuss options with you for replacing the teeth you had removed. Options can include:
- Dental implants
Why Might You Need an Extraction?
In addition to tooth decay and trauma, there are many reasons you could need a tooth removed:
- You may need to give the other teeth in your mouth more space. This is common before getting braces.
- If you suffer from gum disease, your teeth can become loose, and your dentist might suggest removing them and replacing them with dental implants.
- If root canal treatment can’t save your infected tooth, then the next step is to remove it.
- Many people need their wisdom teeth removed at some point.
