Despite our best efforts to maintain the health of your teeth, extractions are sometimes necessary. Cases of infection, severe decay, a large or deep fracture, advanced periodontal disease, or lack of space in your mouth are all common reasons why an extraction might become necessary. If we see that you have a troubled tooth, we will do our best to address it before it progresses. Extractions Before we begin any procedure, we will make sure you feel comfortable. If you feel anxiety about your dental treatment, we offer nitrous oxide, a mild form of sedation, to help you relax. We also use anesthetic to numb your tooth and gums so that you do not feel pain during your procedure. Dr. Duede is very gentle and will communicate with you about the procedure so that you know what to expect. In most cases, extractions go smoothly and heal without incident. We will talk to you about your treatment and what to expect during the healing process. Aftercare for Extractions After your procedure, you will receive care instructions to ensure that you make a speedy recovery. Dr. Duede will talk with you about keeping the extraction site clean, pain management, and follow-up appointments. Our helpful team will schedule a follow-up exam to make sure you heal properly. Referrals to a Specialist If we feel that your extraction is more complicated, we may refer you to one of our trusted oral surgeons to make sure you receive the best care possible and that you feel completely comfortable for your procedure. When we refer you to a specialist, we communicate with that doctor to ensure that you still receive outstanding, seamless care. Tooth Replacement and Restoration When necessary, we will discuss your tooth replacement options. This is especially beneficial if it is an expected extraction. That way, we can have a replacement ready, especially for a front tooth. Bridges, dental implants, and partial dentures are some of the most common tooth replacement options available. Dr. Duede will discuss the options he thinks will work best for you was well as what you would like to replace your missing teeth.
