When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns or fillings aren’t enough to save a tooth, our dentists may need to remove/extract it.
Orleans Town Centre Dental has dentists specializing in the art of tooth extraction. If you’re experiencing intense pain from a tooth, it’s important that you call one of our dental offices to assess your situation as soon as possible.
Typically, extractions are a method of last resort. Only in the most extreme cases, such as when roots are damaged beyond repair, will we extract a tooth. Removing the tooth may then lead to a restorative dentistry procedure, such as dentures or implants. Orleans Town Centre dentists can perform all of this – removing the need to travel back and forth between clinics in Orleans.
The good news is that tooth extractions today are far less painful than they used to be. In fact, with the help of anaesthetics and sedatives, it’s likely that you will feel very little discomfort or pain.
Once the procedure is complete, simple precautions can help to minimize infections such as avoiding smoking, vigorous brushing and drinking liquids through straws.
