There are times when this is not possible. When that happens, tooth extraction is your best bet. Our team provides tooth removal services in our Texas office that can be done right or atter date.

Some of the most common reasons you may need tooth extraction include:

  • A damaged tooth from an accident
  • Impacted teeth, including wisdom teeth
  • Crowding of the teeth
  • Significantly decay and damage to the teeth
  • Gum disease that has damaged your teeth

When you come in for a consultation, we will talk to you about your options and then provide you with an appointment time for tooth extraction if it cannot be done right away.

Simple Tooth Extraction Is an Option

We often use a local anesthetic and remove your tooth during an appointment with the dentist. This may be done when the tooth is in one piece and otherwise easily accessible. If your tooth broke during an accident or there is overcrowding present, we can often use this method.

More Complex Tooth Extraction Options

Another option for teeth extractions is to have an oral surgeon handle the process. There are many times when this is necessary. If the tooth is in multiple pieces or the decay is significant, we may need to use this method. We may also use this method for teeth extractions if the tooth is under the gum, such as in impacted teeth. In these cases, we need to use general anesthesia to reduce any pain you may feel during the procedure.

Tooth Removal Can Be Pain-Free

When you come into our office for teeth extractions, you will notice we are committed to helping to improve your smile without pain. We use a variety of pain medications and offer sedation dentistry. Even if you are afraid to have a dental appointment like this, we can offer solutions to get through it.

Most of the time, tooth removal starts with the gum’s opening, exposing the tooth, and removing it. We then stitch it closed. This allows for the gums to heal over a period of time. We’ll provide you with instructions on how to care for your gums during the healing process.
