Tooth Extractions in El Paso, TX
Call Today! 915.566.3927
In the unfortunate event that a tooth needs to be extracted, you are in good hands. When a tooth is severely damaged, or it is trapped within the jaw bone beneath the gums, tooth extraction may be required. Generally a local anesthetic is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth. At Pershing Family Dental we offer oral sedation to minimize anxiety and pain.
Here at our state-of-the-art dental office in Central El Paso, we can treat problems related to your third molars, more commonly called wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop and usually appear in the late teens or early 20s. They often lack the proper space in the jaw to erupt fully or even at all. When there is not enough space for a wisdom tooth to erupt, this common condition is called impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth can be extremely painful and if left untreated, can cause damage to neighboring teeth.
What To Expect During Your Tooth Extractions
So you know what to expect, we will clearly explain every step of tooth extraction before we begin. If we cannot revive your tooth with a restorative dentistry procedure, we will:
- Thoroughly plan your treatment using digital X-rays and other advanced dental technologies
- Numb the area for optimum comfort
- Gently remove your tooth
We will also give you advice on how to care for your mouth following your tooth removal. If you happen to be nervous, we can also help relieve your dental anxiety and increase your comfort with dental sedation options!
