At Three Creek Dentistry, we are fully equipped to help patients restore and save their natural teeth with general dentistry. However, there are circumstances in which it may best to remove a permanent tooth. We take all factors into consideration, but our primary job is to protect your oral health. Rest assured that extractions at our Derwood office are performed with advanced techniques and extra measures of comfort. In fact, we are prepared to help patients of all ages feel at ease from the moment they walk through our doors. During a tooth extraction, we will explain your procedure in detail and offer sedation dentistry to help you relax.
A tooth may need to be extracted when it is severely damaged or poses a threat to your oral health. Three Creek Dentistry uses a conservative approach to tooth removal so that the surrounding tissues and bone are preserved as much as possible. We may recommend a tooth extraction in the following situations:
- Severe decay or infection
- Advanced gum disease
- Baby tooth that won’t fall out
- Orthodontic pre-treatment
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
Painless Tooth Removal
Regardless of why you need an extraction, you can depend on Three Creek Dentistry to go above and beyond to reduce your discomfort. We offer wireless headphones, Netflix, warm blankets and pillows to help you feel at home in the dental chair. We also use advanced anesthetics and offer sedation dentistry for children and adults. Extractions are typically a short procedure. One of our dental team members will give you detailed instructions on how to accelerate healing at home. However, most patients recover very quickly after a tooth extraction.
Unless it is a wisdom tooth or a tooth removed for orthodontic reasons, it will likely need to be replaced. Three Creek Dentistry offers a full menu of services in restorative dentistry, including start to finish dental implants. We won’t let you suffer the consequences of missing teeth.
