The dental team at Rock Point Family Dentistry has your best oral health as a top priority. That means we do all we can to ensure that your teeth and gums are strong and healthy with general dentistry. Even with care and diligence, there are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Having a tooth extracted in a setting that values patient comfort and freely expresses compassion is important.
No one really wants to have a tooth removed unless absolutely necessary. The thought of having an extraction generally causes a higher level of anxiety. We do our best to calm your fears, reduce your anxiety, and offer restorative options so that your missing tooth will not be missed for longer than necessary. Many people are plagued by the thought of how embarrassing it will be to have a space where their tooth used to be located. Realize that you do have options to fill in the space. These are considerations we can discuss with you at the appropriate time.
Most tooth extractions are simple procedures that take minutes to perform. There is usually little to no discomfort afterward. You are given specific instructions on how to care for the extraction site. For fast and efficient healing, be sure to follow the instructions.
Wisdom teeth are notorious for causing discomfort when they come in, usually in the late teen years or early twenties. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from erupting wisdom teeth, make an appointment at Rock Point Family Dentistry. After examining the site, your dentist will advise you on the course of action that will be best for your situation. Early diagnosis of potential problems can prevent unnecessary discomfort from wisdom teeth.
Keep in mind that tooth extractions are considered oral surgery. Resting and proper care of the extraction site are important for optimal healing. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your extraction. When you need a tooth removed, have it done where your comfort is a primary concern.
