In most cases, our team at Hollon Dental will do whatever possible to save a tooth with general dentistry. Losing teeth can impact your smile and result in changes to your jaw bone structure, issues most people want to avoid. However, there are times when removing a tooth is the best or only solution to an oral health problem. When tooth extractions are needed, our dentists and support team provide a comfortable and low-stress environment for your procedure at our dental center in Mobile, AL.
No one likes the idea of tooth removal, but it does not need to be painful or even uncomfortable. When the right preparation is done before the procedure with advanced imaging technology, tooth extractions can go much smoother with little or no complications. Our dentists utilize 3D cone beam x-rays for many of our surgical procedures to ensure they can identify all nerves and possible obstructions before beginning the oral surgery. Our office also offers sedation dentistry, both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, that can help our patients comfortably relax during their tooth extraction procedure.
Gentle Tooth Removal
Whether it is a severely damaged tooth that needs to be removed or a wisdom tooth that is causing problems, you can trust our team at Hollon Dental to perform a careful and gentle tooth extraction. Your dentist and support staff will thoroughly explain the procedure and what to expect so you feel at ease. Most tooth extractions can be completed in a short time – once the tooth is numbed, the procedure may only take a few minutes. Once the tooth is out, our team will ensure that the site is properly disinfected and packed to help it heal quickly.
While recovery after a tooth extraction is not long, we do suggest patients plan to rest and take it easy after their procedure. Our team will explain the aftercare instructions to allow the gums to heal as quickly as possible. While there is some soreness afterward, there is minimal pain, and it can be easily controlled with medication.
There is no reason to fear a tooth extraction when you come to Hollon Dental for your procedure. If you need a tooth removed, contact our team at our office in Mobile, AL. Most types of dental insurance are accepted at our office, and we have payment options available if needed.
