With all the modern advances in dental treatment, it is best to try and save your teeth. However, circumstances may arise that require the extraction of hopeless teeth. Orthodontic treatment of crowded teeth may also require extractions.
Our competent dentists will ensure that the extraction process is as comfortable as possible. Once profound anesthesia is achieved, the tooth will be removed. Instructions will be given to ensure proper post-operative care and a speedy recovery.
Removing a tooth could lead to the shifting of neighbouring teeth, resulting in problems with chewing and joint function. Of course, loss of a front tooth is an esthetic concern. Your dentist will discuss different ways a missing tooth can be replaced.
If the thought of extractions makes you anxious, you may be a candidate for sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. During the procedure you will be very relaxed and once you wake up you will remember very little of your appointment.
