Tooth extractions in Anchorage may be recommended when restoration procedures like root canal therapy, crowns and fillings aren’t enough to save a tooth. Anchorage tooth extraction involves the pulling of one or more of your teeth, but the procedure isn’t as painful as it sounds.
Thanks to advancements in Anchorage dentistry services, most patients undergoing Anchorage tooth extraction services feel little or no discomfort and only experience minor bleeding.
Our Anchorage Dental Clinic Procedures
Before a tooth can be extracted, the area surrounding the tooth is numbed with a topical and/or injected anesthetic such as Novocain. This will ensure that you feel as little pain as possible during the extraction process. Following the procedure, your dentist may recommend an antibiotic to insure that no infection occurs.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction In Anchorage
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of upper and lower molars that erupt in the back corners of normal adult mouths. For most people, wisdom teeth erupt too close to existing permanent teeth and this causes several problems, including crowding, improper bites and others.
Wisdom teeth problems are a big cause for many Anchorage tooth extractions. Wisdom teeth that aren’t pulled can become impacted, which can cause extreme pain and harm to your oral health. If you are currently experiencing:
- Severe Discomfort
- Facial Swelling
- Or Gum Swelling
