Painless Tooth Extractions
in El Paso 915-921-6200
In the unfortunate event 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, a tooth extraction may be required. Generally a local anesthetic is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth. At Edgemere Dental we offer oral sedation to minimize anxiety and pain.
At Edgemere Dental in El Paso, we can treat problems related to your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars to develop, usually appearing in the late teens and early 20s. They often lack the proper space in the jaw to erupt fully above the gum line. When there is not enough space for a wisdom tooth to erupt, this common condition is called an impacted wisdom tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth can be uncomfortable and even painful. If left untreated, an impaction can cause damage to neighboring teeth and disrupt your normal bite.
What To Expect During Your Tooth Extractions
The dentist and staff at Edgemere Dental will thoroughly explain the tooth extraction process to you. Any dental questions you have will be answered in a patient and caring way.
If you decide with your doctor that the tooth cannot be restored or the wisdom tooth must be removed, the dentist will plan a treatment for you using the latest and safest digital X-rays. A local sedative will be given to you to provide comfort, and numb any pain. The dentist will then begin the tooth extraction procedure.
Pre and post-surgery instructions will given to you to provide maximum safety and comfort during and after the procedure. 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.
