For gentle tooth extractions, call or visit Smile Center today. Our dentist will perform an exam and take digital X-rays to assess your toothβs condition and determine the best course of treatment. If our dentist decides that extraction is necessary, your extraction will be scheduled as soon as possible. In cases of dental emergencies, we may be able to perform the extraction in one same-day appointment.
First, our dentist will prepare your mouth for the procedure. Next, they will administer local anesthetic to the extraction site, numbing your tooth and the surrounding area and minimizing your potential discomfort. Be sure to ask about our sedation dentistry options to help you relax. We offer laughing gas and IV sedation, depending on your unique needs. Once you are comfortable, our dentist will gently and effectively remove your tooth.
Our dentist will then prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers, as well as postoperative care instructions. Be sure to follow these instructions to ensure that your recovery is as comfortable as possible.
