Nobody likes to think about having a tooth extracted. At Oak Grove Dental, our goal is to safeguard your oral health by preserving your teeth whenever possible. But there may come a time when extracting a tooth is our only option.
We know that the thought of having a tooth removed causes many patients to feel anxious. But our state-of-the-art dental technology combined with skill and compassionate care enables us to perform efficient extractions that minimize stress and reduce discomfort.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
There are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary:
- Your tooth is decayed or broken beyond repair.
- The extent of damage cannot be fixed with a root canal.
- Crowded teeth make extraction necessary for orthodontic treatment.
- Teeth need to be removed to prepare for placement of full or partial dentures.
We take your concerns and comfort very seriously, and our professional team is trained to do everything possible to put you at ease. Before we plan treatment, we will answer all your questions so that you understand why tooth extraction is necessary.
Gentle Care for You and Your Family
If you’re worried about anxiety, we can recommend nitrous oxide sedation for your comfort. A caring member of our team will also be at your side to support and encourage you throughout the procedure.
We pay special attention to the needs of young children who are having a tooth extracted. You can rest assured that we will treat your child gently and provide all the reassurance they need to help them feel safe and secure.
