Contrary to what you may have seen in movies and on TV, dentists actually do not like removing teeth. At our dental office, we attempt to repair decayed and broken teeth first, and then an extraction is the last resort, at which point we do everything we can to make the process as comfortable as possible. This includes using a gentle touch, offering sedation, and taking our time to reduce any trauma to the nearby tissues, leading to an easier recovery. Do you or your child have a tooth that may need to be removed? To find out, schedule an appointment today to discuss options for tooth extractions in Colleyville, TX.
If a tooth has already fully erupted, then the extraction process is quite simple. We numb the tooth, gently rock it back and forth with forceps, and it eventually slips out on its own, often without the patient realizing it. Things become more complicated if a tooth is still partially within the gum line, in which case a surgical extraction is needed. We often perform this type of procedure when removing the wisdom teeth, and you can learn more about it here.
