Do You Need Tooth Extraction Treatment at W Dentistry?

You may be feeling anxious, worried, or even terrified at the idea of having a tooth removed. However, at W Dentistry, we will be there to guide you through the process and give you the best care available while ensuring you’re happy and relaxed.

Our dentists at W Dentistry will do everything they can to prevent the need for tooth extraction, whether that’s placing a filling or crown or performing root canal therapy. While teeth are incredibly durable, they are also susceptible to infections or might have suffered trauma. In this case, the only option may be tooth extraction, but there is no need to worry! W Dentistry has a fantastic team of experts to guide you through the process and ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed every step of the way.

Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction

Situations that require a tooth extraction vary from patient to patient. Therefore it is best to contact W Dentistry right away if you’re experiencing any discomfort in your smile. Some reasons why you may need a tooth extraction are:

  • Teeth with levels of decay so severe that the repair is impossible
  • Impacted teeth that may be trapped underneath other teeth, bone, or gum tissue
  • To make room for dentures, partial or full
  • Baby teeth that may not have fallen out on their own
  • Wisdom teeth that have emerged and are causing pain or misalignment
  • Severe oral infections of the inner tooth
  • Physical trauma that has damaged the tooth

In some of these cases, tooth extraction is the best option to help you if your teeth are too damaged, and in turn, it will help relieve pain and stop the decay and disease. This is a great option to maintain your lifelong dental health and improve the appearance of your smile.

The Extraction Process

There are two different extraction processes, and depending on the tooth, the procedure will vary. If the tooth is easily accessible, our dentists will administer local anesthetic to the tooth and surrounding area and use specialized instruments to remove the tooth gently and painlessly. If the tooth is impacted or is more complicated to remove for a variety of reasons, we may need to perform a surgical extraction by making a small incision in the gum tissue and/or cutting the tooth into smaller pieces before following the same steps we would for the first extraction process. Both of these procedures are focused on your comfort, and we are here to provide you with options to ensure your time at W Dentistry is relaxed and pain-free. After the extraction, we will go over post-extraction care with you so that you heal correctly and as quickly as possible while knowing that we’re here for you after you leave our office. We also offer same-day tooth extraction if needed. As always, if you need anything, give us a call.

FAQ's About General Dentistry

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
Why do regular dental visits matter?
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot tooth decay or gum disease early on, when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that might appear in the mouth.
What can I expect on my first visit?
During your first dental appointment, we will begin by gathering all of the necessary information to determine your dental health. We'll take X-rays and examine your mouth for any problems that might need treatment. After cleaning you up, it's time to discuss all your dental solution options.
What insurance companies are you contracted with?
Although we do not contract with any insurance providers, we are able to accept most dental insurance on an indemnity basis. We will check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-pocket cost, and then get the claim started for you.

Because we accept dental insurance on an indemnity basis, you will need to pay for your services before we can begin any dental work. We accept cash, credit or one of our convenient financing options. Your insurance company will then reimburse you within a few weeks.
