No one looks forward to having a tooth pulled. However, this is often the best way to solve a problem, especially if it involves crowding, infection, or damage to a tooth. At Nobel Dental Care, we strive to make these procedures as pleasant as possible. It starts with our dentist, Dr. Pooja Mehrotra, who performs all types of extractions. Dr. Mehrotra will administer a thorough dental examination to determine if an extraction is necessary. This process is helped by our relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. Finally, we offer a number of sedation options so you can be comfortable before, during, and after the process.
Simple extractions are when a visible tooth is removed. Common reasons for this procedure include tooth disease, crowding of other teeth in the mouth, or trauma. Some patients may also need to have teeth removed before they begin orthodontic treatment.
Surgical extractions are required when a tooth has not erupted through the gums. This procedure may also require the removal of bone or gum tissue. A surgical extraction will require stitches and a slightly longer recovery time.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth cause problems for many patients. In some cases, these teeth come in but cause crowding or damage to other teeth. In other cases, one or more wisdom teeth may be impacted, meaning they fail to break through the skin. This can result in pain or infection. Wisdom tooth extractions relieve these unpleasant symptoms and give you a better chance at having healthy teeth and gums.
Regardless of the type of extraction you need, the staff at Nobel Dental Care will make sure you’re fully informed about the details of your procedure. They’ll also give you a care plan that will guide you through recovery and help you avoid future problems. Call our Lancaster, SC family dentist’s office to schedule an appointment.
