Tooth Extractions in Mississauga
Your smile is important to you, and at 9th Line Dental, we understand it’s important to us, too. It is our priority to save your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are some scenarios in which the best option is to remove a tooth, whether it is trauma-related, orthodontic reasons, or if it is impossible to save through treatments such as root canal therapy. We use modern dental techniques to effectively and efficiently remove teeth with minimal impact on the surrounding teeth.
When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Tooth extraction is considered only when all other treatments have been ruled out. Teeth may need to be removed for several reasons, including extensive decay in the roots, an abscess, impacted wisdom teeth, or for orthodontic reasons. Once we’ve decided that extraction is the best solution for your health, we’ll discuss both the extraction process and restoration options with you and come up with a personalized treatment plan.
What to Expect from Teeth Extraction
Before the procedure begins, we ensure our patients have reached profound anesthesia, meaning the entire area surrounding the tooth and the deep nerves are numb. This process allows the dentists to proceed with confidence that the patient won’t feel any pain. Profound anesthesia may require more than one needle. If you feel anxious about the treatment, let our staff know in advance and we can discuss options to help you feel relaxed and confident. After the procedure is finished, we will give you instructions on how to care for your mouth during the healing period.
