Although extractions are avoided as much as possible, sometimes tooth extractions can be the best thing for your smile! For instance, when working on straightening your teeth sometimes a tooth may be removed because of too much crowding in your smile. This creates room for your other teeth to comfortably shift into place. Another need for an extraction may be a damaged tooth. If a tooth is damaged beyond repair or is threatening the surrounding teeth, an extraction may be recommended. Other reasons such as not enough room for wisdom teeth may indicate the need for an extraction.
If your dentist recommends an extraction, don’t worry! With the help of sedation dentistry, your appointment can be over quickly while you sit comfortably through your entire visit. Your dentist will provide sedation at the beginning of your appointment, as well as numb the area where your tooth will be extracted. Your dentist will ensure you are completely relaxed and in no pain. Then, your dentist will carefully extract your tooth. Once the tooth removal is complete, your dentist can go over options with you for tooth replacement or any other follow-up treatment that is recommended.
