Teeth extractions are sometimes necessary to relieve pain and help our patients maintain their oral health.
Despite your best efforts, teeth sometimes need to be removed to protect your health. When we've discussed all other possibilities, and you've decided on extraction, we'll take every step to help you. You can trust Sunridge Dental Care for comfortable and effective teeth extractions. We also remove wisdom teeth as needed.(505) 375-6175
Your well-being always takes priority in any treatment decision. Some patients prefer sedation to help with oral surgery, and we can review these options in your treatment plan. We take every measure to make sure even minor surgical procedures are as comfortable as possible.
Here are some reasons you may need an extraction:
If you are experiencing issues with your wisdom teeth, we also perform oral surgery to remove wisdom teeth. We may remove one or all four, depending on your treatment needs.
Some teeth are removed more easily than others, but the Sunridge Dental Care team takes pride in helping every patient get numb with modern anesthesia. We also offer dental sedation for your comfort. Once the anesthesia and sedation takes effect, Dr. Peter Roukema and Dr. Kyle Henry use specialized instruments to elevate the tooth out of place. You will receive specific post-op instructions to help you care for the area after your procedure.
While our immediate concern is the short-term management of your care, we will also discuss your long-term plans for replacing missing teeth. Leaving a space is always an option, but spaces in your smile can create appearance and function challenges that are important to consider. Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces and minimizing the effects of an unbalanced bite now can prevent issues later in life.
Although our primary goal is to help your teeth stay healthy and functional, an extraction is sometimes the best way to preserve the overall health of your mouth. Since teeth help nourish our bodies and support our confidence, we will help you create a plan that fits your short and long-term goals.
