Tooth Extractions for the Nervous Patient
At Fife Dental Care, we practice conservative dental care. That means we strive to help you save your natural teeth. However, sometimes teeth are beyond saving. Either decay has progressed too far or external damage may be cost-prohibitive to repair. In these cases, we provide tooth extraction practiced with the utmost care for your comfort.
When You May Need Tooth Extraction
Natural teeth can often be saved with timely dental care. However, if infection or damage has reached the nerve of the tooth, your options may be limited. Root canal therapy may allow you to save your tooth. In cases of damage, if there is not enough of the natural tooth left to which to affix a crown, the tooth may need to be removed to prevent infection and expand your restorative options.
We Help You Relax During Your Tooth Extraction
At Fife Dental Care, we know that fear is often what stands between you and quality dental care. We strive to remove all obstacles by ensuring your comfort during all restorative procedures. Our friendly staff takes the time to understand your dental anxiety, and we provide a number of options to help you relax. We ensure that the area affected by the tooth extraction is completely numbed and may provide you with pain relievers for at-home use once your procedure is over.
For those with severe dental phobia, we offer oral conscious sedation.
We Help You Restore Your Smile after
Tooth extractions remove the tooth root from your jawbone, leaving a space between remaining teeth. If left untreated, surrounding teeth can drift into the gap, causing misalignment that can lead to TMJ pain. Gaps can also take a toll on your self-confidence, making you hesitant to smile.
