At Ross Allen, DDS, we do everything in our power to retain and save your natural teeth. However, there are times when a dental extraction is necessary to keep your teeth and gums in good shape.
Gentle Dental Extractions
Our Oklahoma City patients can rest assured with the knowledge that Dr. Allen keeps patient comfort in mind at every opportunity, especially during dental surgical treatments. If you need a tooth extraction, we make the process straightforward and stress-free.
Why You Might Need a Dental Extraction
When no other option is possible, we may recommend a tooth extraction. There are different reasons why a tooth might be affected and need to be pulled, including:
- Tooth decay
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Preparation for orthodontics
- Periodontal treatment
We offer both types of dental extractions: simple and surgical. Dr. Allen administers a local anesthetic to keep patients numb, so they only feel slight discomfort and pressure.
While it’s not exciting news to find out you need a dental extraction, we work hard to make the experience straightforward and gentle.
What a Dental Extraction Looks Like
Whether you need wisdom teeth removed or have a problem tooth, we make sure our patients are relaxed through the dental procedure.
Are you feeling anxious about your dental extraction? We appreciate how intimidating the procedure can sound.
Dr. Allen starts the dental extraction procedure by removing the tooth in several stages. Once the tooth is extracted, we will apply sutures, if necessary, to initiate the healing process. The sutures will dissolve on their own over time.
