When a tooth is damaged by cavities, infection or even trauma, it may become necessary to remove the tooth. Our dentists and team offer all types of dental extractions, including surgical and wisdom teeth extractions. Additionally, we extract impacted wisdom teeth. When you have a toothache, broken tooth or a tooth emergency that may require an extraction, call us as soon as possible. We understand the discomfort such conditions can bring, and our team will work to get you in as quickly as we can. To enhance the comfort of treatment, we offer several options including medications to increase relaxation like nitrous oxide (laughing gas), topical numbing gel and various local anesthetic techniques. Patients are also encouraged to bring their own headphones and music to listen to during their dental visits. Once the tooth has been removed, our dentists and team will talk with you about the necessary aftercare steps to ensure that you heal properly, and we will schedule you for a follow-up visit to check your progress and discuss your tooth replacement options.
