Helping patients retain their natural teeth is a top priority for our dental team at Liberty Lake Smile Source. While we want to preserve your teeth, we also know there are circumstances when removing teeth is the best or only option. Tooth extractions do not need to be stressful or painful when performed by an experienced dentist. Our dental team offers a comfortable and stress-free experience for our patients who need a tooth extraction.
Removing a tooth is a type of oral surgery, disconnecting the root from the jawbone. The procedure can usually be performed in less than an hour without incisions. It is understandable that many patients are nervous before a tooth removal, but our dentists and staff make the procedure as comfortable as possible. The tooth is completely numbed to prevent any pain, and patients can also choose to use sedation options if they have any anxiety about the procedure.
Stress-Free Tooth Removal
In most cases, patients can quickly be back to their normal activities after a tooth removal. We will give post-procedure instructions to allow the gum tissue to heal effectively after the procedure. Patients should plan to rest and recover the remainder of the day and avoid smoking, certain foods/beverages and stress on the surgery site. There is typically very little discomfort, and most patients are well on their way to full recovery within a few days.
Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to be removed in younger people, but any tooth can be extracted if it is causing oral health problems. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we offer efficient and pain-free tooth extractions for all ages in our relaxing and comfortable dental center. You can enjoy watching a show on the TV in your treatment room or listen to music on wireless headphones during your procedure. We want to ensure you are completely at ease during your visits to our practice.
