Tooth extraction is a relatively quick outpatient procedure that results in a dentist or oral surgeon removing a tooth. Extensive trauma, tooth decay, gum disease and cracked or broken teeth usually require immediate attention from your dentist. As your dental care provider, we will evaluate your case and do everything we can to save your natural teeth. However, despite our best efforts in saving teeth, sometimes extractions are the only treatment option in extreme cases. Tooth extraction is a very common procedure, and is performed at all American Dental Solutions’ locations.
In some cases, it may be necessary to have a specialist preform the extraction. Our on-staff oral surgeon is available for pain and anxiety free extractions through the use of sedation. Therefore, if you prefer to sleep through your appointment, just request our oral surgeon. After the extraction is complete, you can expect some minor discomfort. As a result we recommend that you follow the guidelines your doctor provides to ensure a successful and speedy recovery.
Finally, after an extraction be sure to replace your missing tooth. This is because leaving a space in your gums from a missing tooth can cause various complications down the line including shifting, alignment and occlusion issues. American Dental Solutions provides several options for replacing your tooth. These options for replacing your tooth include: dental implants, dentures and bridges.
