Whenever possible, our dental team at Haven Dentistry is committed to helping our patients maintain their natural teeth. In most cases, we recommend general dental treatments to save teeth, but there are occasions where removing a tooth is the best solution. Severely damaged or diseased teeth may need to be extracted to protect your health or for other reasons. When you need a tooth extraction in Richmond, TX, our team can provide a comfortable, painless experience at our dental center near Aliana.
Tooth removal is not a procedure that most people look forward to, but it does not need to be traumatic. With the right preparation, it can be quick and painless. Teeth have between one and four roots that attach to the jawbone. During a tooth extraction, the root must be released from the jaw to allow the tooth to be removed. Our dentists carefully examine digital imaging before a tooth extraction to reduce the chances of any complication and ensure a smooth procedure. Molars are the most complex since they have the most roots. However, using the right tools and techniques can ensure even large wisdom teeth are extracted without problems.
Pain and Stress-Free Tooth Removal
If you have a damaged or diseased tooth that requires removal, you can expect a stress-free experience at Haven Dentistry. We will ensure the tooth is completely numb before we begin your procedure so there is no pain. If you are anxious about your tooth extraction, our dentist may recommend oral conscious sedation, which can put you into a relaxed state with a medication taken before your procedure. In most cases, tooth extractions can be performed in less than a half an hour, once the local anesthesia has numbed the tooth.
Once the tooth is removed, the area is packed with gauze and can heal over the next few days. Our dental team will give instructions on how to care for the surgical site for a quick recovery. If oral conscious sedation is used, an adult will need to bring the patient home after their procedure.
