Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Although your teeth are durable and can withstand decades of biting and chewing, situations may occur where they become susceptible to damage, decay, or infection. Although our practice strives to save as much of your natural teeth as possible, there are certain circumstances where extraction is necessary. When your tooth's structure has become compromised, bacteria can infect its pulp chamber. If left untreated, a tooth infection can negatively impact your entire body and lead to health complications. During your initial visit with our team, we'll use diagnostic technology like x-rays to make sure an extraction is necessary. Some of the most common situations that warrant tooth extraction include:
- Your tooth has become loose because of gum disease
- You need dental implants, and extractions are needed to make space
- Root canal therapy has failed to restore your tooth
- Your tooth is severely damaged or decayed and cannot be restored
- Tooth infection has spread to your surrounding teeth
Our Efficient Extraction Process
If our dentist determines that tooth extraction is needed, we'll begin by numbing the area around your compromised tooth. Once the area has been sufficiently numbed and any additional sedatives have been delivered, a skilled oral surgeon will work to gently extract your tooth. After the extraction procedure, we'll dress the tooth socket with gauze to protect it while you heal. Our team will provide detailed post-surgery instructions on properly caring for your smile.
How We Restore Oral Health After Tooth Extraction
We'll talk to you at your consultation about the importance of protecting your smile after an extraction. To avoid negative oral health complications that may occur after extractions, we offer services like bone grafts and dental implants.
- Bone grafting is a form of bone preservation that works to strengthen and preserve the health of your jawbone. Bone grafts may also be required to increase your jaw density if you're planning on getting dental implants.
- Dental implants are sturdy posts implanted into your jawbone that are topped with tooth-shaped restorations. They stimulate your jawbone and promote gum health while filling in the gaps where teeth were extracted, helping to keep your teeth aligned and improving your bite function.
Providing Extensive Sedation Options
At 3D Dental Group, we know that some patients may need extra help relaxing during their procedure. That's why we're proud to offer various sedation options to fit your comfort level. Before your tooth extraction procedure begins, we can sit down with you and outline our options and their unique benefits. Our sedation offerings include:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation: Nitrous oxide is a safe sedation option ideal for adults and children. Before your procedure, we'll place a special mask over your nose that's connected to a mixture of oxygen and a sedative agent. Breathing in the mixture helps numb your entire body and brings about a feeling of relaxation. Once the extraction is complete, nitrous oxide wears off quickly, making it safe to operate a vehicle or continue your day.
Oral Conscious Sedation: Oral conscious sedation is a form of sedation that's administered in pill form. Depending on the nature of your tooth extraction and the severity of your anxiety, it can be provided in small or large dosages. We'll have you take one pill the night before your procedure and another pill immediately before it. The pill releases a sedative into your body that helps you feel relaxed about your procedure. Like nitrous oxide sedation, both adults and children can take it. However, unlike nitrous oxide sedation, we recommend that you have someone drive you home and that you relax for the rest of the day.
IV Sedation: IV sedation is the highest level of sedation our office offers and is only appropriate for adults. By delivering a sedative into your bloodstream through your veins, IV sedation provides faster results than either nitrous oxide or oral sedation. Our experienced dental team will oversee the administration of IV sedation by monitoring your vitals and making any necessary adjustments. Typically, IV sedation is an ideal option for patients undergoing complex tooth extractions or for those with high anxiety levels. With this method, we also recommend that you have someone drive you home following your procedure.
