Our office in Noblesville, Indiana offers same-day emergency appointments, as scheduling permits, to give you the urgent care you need right away.
Common Reasons for Tooth Extractions:
What should I expect during an extraction?
The team at Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry may perform one of two types of extractions: Simple Extraction or Surgical Extraction. We will determine the type of extraction you need by taking digital x-rays beforehand. Regardless of the type of extraction, our number one goal is patient comfort. At Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer several types of sedation to allow you to sit back, relax, and be comfortable during your procedure.
Before removal of the tooth, the area will be numbed with anesthesia. The tooth will be loosened from the jaw bone and tissue, then gently removed (you may feel some slight pressure as the tooth comes out of the socket). Sutures may be necessary after the removal of the tooth. The most important part of tooth removal is the aftercare. Whether you had a simple or surgical extraction carefully following the expert advice of the staff at Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will allow for optimum healing.
After having a tooth removed you my notice changes in your jaw. Adjacent teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your overall ability to function. If you want to prevent these complications, at Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry may recommend that you replace the space with a dental bridge or dental implant.
