At South Texas Dental, we strive to prevent tooth loss through excellent dental care. However, it is not always possible to save a tooth that is damaged due to extensive decay, infection or trauma. When it is in the best interest of our patient’s health, we provide tooth extractions at our many locations, including our clinic in McKinney.
Many people feel anxiety when they need to have a tooth pulled. While we understand this can be a stressful experience, our caring dental team is experienced at making the procedure quick and painless for our patients. If you or one of your family members has a tooth that needs extraction, we will make sure that we give you everything needed to feel as comfortable as possible. In most cases, the procedure is over in a matter of minutes and you will be on the mend before you know it.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common extractions is that of the the wisdom teeth. While some people are able to keep their wisdom teeth, others may need them removed for the best oral health. Most people notice these last molars beginning to erupt by their early twenties, sometimes in their late teens. It is important that teens have their wisdom teeth monitored in case they begin to grow in sideways, become impacted or create problems in their bite alignment.
If you and your child need wisdom teeth removed, our caring dentists at South Texas Dental can make the experience comfortable and mostly pain-free. We will discuss anesthesia options and appropriate after-care to ensure that the procedure goes smoothly and safely.
