Severely diseased or decayed teeth, as well as impacted wisdom teeth, increase the risk for chronic tooth pain, infection, and damage to other teeth. These situations oftentimes necessitate a tooth extraction, especially if all other restorative measures have been unsuccessful. We may recommend tooth extractions for a variety of reasons, but the end goal is always to preserve your oral health.
If you have chronic tooth pain, it is wise to seek the care of experienced dentists like those at Eastern Shores Smile Solutions. We provide teeth extractions on a routine basis and are certified in IV sedation for a virtually painless, comfortable and stress-free experience. Teeth extractions at our office are always a last resort (except for wisdom teeth removal), and we do our best to save natural teeth when possible. In instances where we deem a tooth extraction in Cambridge, MD, to be necessary to preserve your health, you can feel safe and secure receiving care from us.
Our goal with teeth extractions is to make your appointment as efficient, painless, and as comfortable as possible. Extractions are relatively simple procedures and rarely lead to complications. Commonly, teeth extractions can be completed with local anesthetic, though we will provide additional sedation options to help you feel relaxed. During the actual extraction process, you will only feel a slight pressure as the tooth is removed. After a tooth extraction, it will take a few days for your body to recover and swelling to go down. We will provide detailed instructions at your appointment, so you will know what to expect as you heal. If you are concerned about teeth extractions, we welcome you to contact our office for an appointment! Many times, assurance that the procedure is fast, safe, and eliminates chronic tooth pain for good is all our patients need to feel comfortable pursuing care with us.
