Protecting your beautiful smile with general dentistry is our top priority at Nautical Dental. Unfortunately, sometimes that includes removing teeth that are causing you pain or health issues. We understand that no one wants to undergo a tooth extraction, but we make it as stress-free and comfortable for our patients as possible. Our office is designed with comfort and relaxation in mind to put you at ease and we offer sedation dentistry for our patients.
There are many situations that can lead to the need for a tooth extraction. While we can treat many tooth problems to save teeth, there are times when extraction is the best or only option. Extreme trauma to a tooth or severe infection are two reasons a tooth may need to be removed. When this is the case, our dentists will explain the process and answer any questions you have about the removal and what to expect during and after the treatment.
While some teeth need removal due to health issues, wisdom teeth are often removed to prevent health problems. Wisdom teeth are usually the only teeth removed when they are just coming through. These last molars arrive in early adulthood or the late teens and often do not have enough room to come in correctly. This can lead to them becoming impacted, growing in the wrong direction, or not coming through the gums at all. Without removal, misalignment, infection, bone loss, sinus, and other problems can ensue. When necessary, our experienced dentists can remove these molars to protect your oral and overall health.
There is no reason to fear a tooth extraction when you come to Nautical Dental. We will ensure you get the best care and have a calm, comfortable experience. Contact our office today to set up an appointment for an exam and to learn more about the procedure and our sedation options during treatment.
