Protecting and caring for your smile is our privilege at Converse Dentistry. Our goal is to help our patients maintain and achieve excellent oral health with family dentistry. Whenever possible, we strive to keep your natural teeth in place. However, when a tooth does need to be removed for the benefit of our patient, we offer gentle tooth extractions in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
In most cases, tooth extractions can be performed quickly and without undue stress. Some teeth, especially those located in the front positions, only have one root and are easily removed. With molars, there can be up to four roots in place, which requires careful planning to remove the tooth without damage to the surrounding teeth and tissue. If you need a tooth extracted, our dentist will take the time to explain the procedure, and what to expect, in detail. We offer sedation options for those who feel anxious about the procedure and prefer a higher level of relaxation during the extraction.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Most teeth that need extraction have been damaged or decayed to the point where they can no longer be repaired. Wisdom teeth are the exception. These final molars arrive in the late teens or early twenties and can often cause oral health problems. If they become impacted, they can cause pain, inflammation, or alignment issues.
Wisdom tooth removal is a routine procedure for those who experience issues with this third set of molars. Our dentist can remove a single wisdom tooth or all the molars at one time. A thorough exam will determine the best course of treatment for your wisdom teeth.
At Converse Dentistry, we understand that the thought of a tooth extraction can be stressful. However, we provide a caring, comfortable environment with an experienced dental team to guide you through this process.
