Tooth Extraction

Even with advanced technology and treatment options, accidents and severe dental issues can make tooth extraction necessary. For instance, a tooth that is too severely damaged to be restored with a dental crown, or one or more impacted wisdom teeth that are damaging your other teeth. In such cases, extracting the tooth may be the only option for protecting the rest of your oral health.

What You Can Expect When You Need Your Tooth Extracted

A tooth extraction is often preventable. Timely restorative dental work can resolve problems with your tooth before this work is necessary. With that said, the procedure is sometimes necessary either because trouble is not treated in time, you need wisdom teeth extracted, or a significant injury occurs.

Care is taken to make the process as conservative and comfortable as possible. Dr. Hansen and Dr. Hemming are able to prepare you for the procedure itself, and they can break down long-term plans so that you enjoy a fully restored smile after receiving a custom replacement tooth. They can also explain the service and the role that sedation can play in making you comfortable during your procedure.

Tooth Extraction And Patient Comfort

If you are apprehensive about tooth extraction, or if the procedure requires surgery (such as impacted wisdom teeth), we may recommend dental sedation in the form of nitrous oxide. Once the sedation and local anesthesia take effect, your dentist will carefully extract the tooth. With the exception of wisdom teeth, your tooth may need to be replaced afterwards. We offer permanent solutions for tooth loss that include dental bridges and restorations held in place with dental implants.
