What Are Tooth Extractions?
At Savannah Smiles Dental, we make every effort to conserve and maintain your teeth; however, teeth that are damaged or decayed beyond repair might have to be extracted. A simple extraction takes out a tooth that is visible above the gumline. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that hasn't erupted above the gumline. Surgical extractions are frequently performed to remove impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, that do not have enough space to fit into your mouth. Dr. Cassandra Garcia provides different sedation methods, such as nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, which can help you stay comfortable during your treatment. If you think you may need a tooth extraction or other dental treatment, call our Schertz, TX office today to schedule an exam.
How Are Tooth Extractions Performed?
Tooth extractions are performed in our office using local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth being removed. Different types of sedation may be used, depending on the degree of the extraction and to help keep you relaxed in case you have any anxiety. To complete a simple extraction, Dr. Garcia will loosen the tooth using a special device known as an elevator before removing it. A surgical extraction entails making incisions in your gums to get to the tooth. If needed, the tooth may be broken up into smaller pieces so it can be removed. Once the tooth has been removed, the incision in your gums will be closed up. Antibiotics or pain medication might be prescribed afterward.
Savannah Smiles Dental Reviews
The transition from retiring Dr Durnford to new ownership for Savanah Smiles Dental has been seamless and flawless from my perspective. New staff are friendly and absolutely professional. I don't particularly enjoy dental visits, but Dr Garcia put me at ease right away. She has an affable personality and she exudes confidence and professionalism. Robert, the dental tech who conducted my cleaning, was exceptional and we had a lot in common. It was like running into an old friend you haven't seen for awhile. He took care of my teeth and did a wonderful job. This is the place to come for your dental needs!
