Healthy teeth are our top priority at South Texas Dental. Our entire dental team from our dentists and hygienists to our orthodontists are all dedicated to helping you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Yet even with good dental hygiene, there are situations that require a tooth extraction. Genetics, lifestyle and trauma can all factor into your oral health and when a tooth cannot be saved, it may need removal to protect your overall health. At South Texas Dental, we offer caring, compassionate tooth extractions when it is in the best interest of our patient’s health.
No one wants to lose a tooth, whatever the reason. However, when it is necessary, our dental team will make the experience as painless and anxiety-free as possible. If you need a tooth removed, call our office in Irving to schedule an exam. We will take the time to explain the procedure, offer anesthesia options and give you home care instructions to ensure a quick, healthy recovery. We even offer same day appointments for dental emergencies when possible.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are your last molars to come in, usually arriving in your late teens and early twenties. Some people have no problems with their wisdom teeth, while others may need to have their wisdom teeth removed. If these molars are not aligned correctly, they can crowd the existing teeth, grow in crooked or become impacted under adjacent teeth. When wisdom teeth pose a threat to your dental health, we recommend their removal. Our South Texas Dental team can monitor wisdom tooth growth during the teen years to determine when and if they will need to be removed.
When you need one or more teeth removed, trust our caring dentists at South Texas Dental in Irving. Most insurance plans cover tooth extraction, either completely or partially. We accept most dental insurance, including participation in Medicaid and CHIP plans, plus we offer other payment options. Contact South Texas Dental today to schedule an exam for wisdom teeth removal or other tooth extractions.
