When a tooth cannot be saved or restored and risks affecting your other teeth or oral health, tooth extraction may be the best solution. At Essence of Dentistry, our dentists will always go above and beyond to provide the best treatment options and save your natural teeth and only recommend extraction when it is the best way to protect your overall oral health.
Our dentists are gentle and well-versed in performing simple and surgical tooth extractions and our dental team has systems and solutions in place to ensure your comfort and ease your anxiety in the event an extraction is needed.
You will need to undergo a dental examination to determine if a tooth extraction is necessary and the best solution for your long-term dental health. Our dentists in Redmond, WA, may recommend an extraction when:
If you have been told you need an extraction and want a second opinion or need an emergency extraction or wisdom teeth removal, contact our team today at (425) 885-0200. We also offer same-day appointments.
Our dentists at Essence of Dentistry are gentle and compassionate and will first explain what you can expect from the procedure and discuss pain management options with you. We will ensure your comfort and use numbing solutions to ensure you don’t feel any pain.
Depending on the complexity of your case, our dentist will perform a simple or surgical procedure. Simple extractions are performed when the tooth is visible above the gum line and fully erupted. For a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth from its socket and uses forceps to remove it.
Surgical extractions are performed when the tooth has not erupted through the gum or is broken. For this type of procedure, the dentist makes an incision in the gum to access the tooth and uses stitches to suture the extraction site after the procedure.
After your extraction, our dentist will provide instructions on how to best care for the extraction site, manage any post-procedure pain, and promote proper healing. If necessary, the dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you and recommend the option you can benefit from most. The tooth replacement options we offer at our dental practice in Redmond, WA, include dental implants and bridges.
At Essence of Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort during dental procedures, and that's why we have implemented a cutting-edge buffer system. This advanced technology neutralizes the pH level of anesthetics to 7.4, significantly reducing the pain experienced upon injection and speeding up the numbing process. We understand that post-operative pain can be influenced by various factors, including the surgeon's skill in performing the procedure swiftly and with minimal damage to surrounding soft and hard tissues. That is why our team consists of highly trained dentists who possess not only technical expertise but also a gentle touch to deliver exceptional results while ensuring your utmost satisfaction.
