Have you been informed you have a severely decayed, damaged or even infected tooth? Do you have extra teeth in your smile or overcrowding? At Open Wide Dental, although our ultimate goal is to preserve smiles, we are proud to offer tooth extractions in Phoenix for those in need. At Open Wide Dental, a tooth extraction is always a last resort treatment, we believe that preserving and protecting a patient’s natural smile is always the best option. Not sure if you may need a tooth extraction? Feel free to schedule a consultation, we’d be more than happy to evaluate your affected tooth to determine the best treatment option for you, your smile and overall health.
In a situation where the affected tooth has fully erupted, is completely visible and is not damaged or decayed, a simple tooth extraction may be recommended. Prior to a tooth extraction, local anaesthetic is used to reduce any discomfort or pain during the procedure. During a simple tooth extraction in Phoenix, we use an elevator to gently loosen the affected tooth before using forceps to completely remove it.
In a situation where the affected tooth is damaged or decayed, not visible or not fully erupted, a surgical tooth extraction may be required. Prior to a surgical tooth extraction, the area will be numbed to reduce any discomfort. During a surgical tooth extraction in Phoenix, a tiny incision will be made to properly access and remove the tooth. In some situations, the affected tooth may also need to be broken in order to be properly removed.
Depending upon which tooth is removed, Open Wide Dental may recommend a treatment option to replace the missing tooth and restore the health, function and appearance of your smile.
