When Should Tooth Extraction Be an Option?

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

If you’re apprehensive about tooth extraction, or if the procedure requires surgery (such as impacted wisdom teeth), then Dr. Hansen may recommend dental sedation in the form of nitrous oxide. Once the sedation and local anesthesia take effect, Dr. Hansen will carefully extract the tooth. Besides wisdom teeth, your tooth may need to be replaced afterwards, so Dr. Hansen will also discuss your options, such as a dental implant or bridge.
