Tooth Removal | Tooth Extractions in Rochester, MN
Have you been told you need to have a tooth extracted? Are you concerned about your upcoming tooth extraction? The team at Northwest Dental Group is here to provide you with the safest tooth removal / tooth extractions in Rochester, MN and the surrounding area.
Our team of dentists are skilled and experienced in extracting teeth so that you are not in pain. If you have severe dental decay, we will consider whether we can save the tooth first with a filling, inlay or onlay, or a root canal. If none of these procedures can be performed, we will extract the tooth for you.
The Tooth Extraction Process
When it is time to extract your tooth, the dentist will begin by numbing the area with a local anesthetic. Once your mouth is numb, the dentist will carefully remove it from your mouth using special tools. If damage has occurred to your tooth and cannot be removed all at once, the dentist will remove the tooth in pieces to ensure there is less trauma to your gums.
For removing, say the average tooth, I would anticipate a person having very little discomfort and very little loss of function. They should not have to plan on a long recuperation period or anything like that but we do those right here in the office as well.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Sometimes, wisdom teeth cause pain in your mouth and can cramp your other teeth. When this occurs, they need to be removed to prevent damage to the surrounding teeth. The team at Northwest Dental Group can remove your wisdom teeth to eliminate pain and keep your mouth healthy. If your wisdom teeth are impacted and have not erupted through your gums, we can refer you to a specialist in the area for extraction. We will see you prior to your extraction to determine that you need to have it performed, and we will care for your teeth after the extraction as well.
Sedation Dentistry for Relief
If you are afraid to have your teeth extracted, we will discuss our dental sedation options with you. We provide nitrous oxide, pre-surgery medication, IV sedation, and oral sedation to help keep you calm throughout all of your dental procedure.
