Who needs a dental extraction?
Many patients want to keep their natural teeth whenever possible, and our team is also committed to practicing conservative dentistry and only removing teeth whenever it is deemed absolutely necessary. Some common reasons that this restorative procedure is performed include:
- Untreatable tooth decay
- Severe dental trauma
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Infection or abscess
- Crowded or impacted teeth
Are dental extractions painful?
At Wedington Family Dental, we want all of our patients to have the most comfortable treatments possible. Before your treatment begins, local anesthetic will be used to numb the nerves in your teeth and gums to reduce or eliminate pain during the procedure. We will also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for managing any discomfort that may arise post-treatment. If you have any questions or concerns for our team before or after your dental extraction, please let us know, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
