In most cases, preserving your natural teeth is the preferred option. You only get one set, and making them last as long as possible is important for your health and appearance. At Laguna West Dental Care, we strive to do everything possible to protect our patients from tooth loss. However, if a tooth is beyond help or jeopardizing your oral health, we provide tooth extractions at our clinic in Elk Grove.
The thought of a tooth extraction will make many people cringe, but it does not need to be a painful or traumatic experience. Our dental team understands that tooth removal can be stressful for most people. We provide a calm, relaxing atmosphere to help put our patients at ease. Our dentist will discuss anesthesia or sedation options that can ensure that you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. We will also provide post-care instructions to help prevent complications from your tooth extraction and hasten the recovery after your procedure.
Gentle Tooth Removal
Tooth extractions are usually quick procedures. Most of your front teeth only have one or two roots, making them easy to remove. Molars can have up to four roots, requiring more effort and preparation so they can be extracted without complications. Our dental team carefully reviews x-rays and digital imaging before tooth extractions to ensure the procedure goes smoothly and gently. In most cases, a tooth can be removed in less than a half hour, once the anesthesia has taken effect.
No one wants to have a tooth removed. When it is necessary, you can trust our team at Laguna West Dental Care to provide quick, gentle tooth extractions. If you have a tooth that needs removal, we offer a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere and experienced dental professionals to perform your procedure.
