Our dentist will take X-rays and thoroughly examine your tooth to see if there is anyway the tooth can be saved with a filling, crown or other treatment.
However, if there is too much damage and your tooth cannot be restored, our dentist will recommend an extraction.
Before your tooth is extracted, you will be given a local painkiller so that you do not feel any pain during the procedure. You may feel some pressure as the dentist removes the tooth, but you shouldn’t feel pain.
During a simple extraction, our dentist will loosen the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. The dentist will use another instrument, forceps, to actually remove the tooth.
We Provide Wisdom Tooth Extraction.
For people who are having wisdom teeth extracted, they may need general anesthesia for a surgical extraction, which includes a small incision into the gums. Sometimes, a wisdom tooth may have to be cut in half to extract it.
People who go under general anesthesia will definitely need someone to drive them home after the procedure. If you have a local painkiller, you may still want someone to drive you home.
