Restore Your Oral Health With an Extraction
A tooth extraction is one of the most basic oral surgeries that dentists perform. Although Dr. Fitts would rather try to save a damaged tooth through root canal treatment or by making a same-day crown to cap the tooth, he will remove the tooth if necessary. Left alone, a diseased tooth has the potential to cause damage to the surrounding healthy teeth and gums, creating even bigger problems that could require more extensive dental work.
If you need your tooth removed, Dr. Fitts will do it quickly, yet gently. He has performed enough extractions over the years that you can rest assured your procedure will go off without a hitch. Before any work is done, we’ll completely numb the area using a local anesthetic. Then, and only then, will he proceed with your extraction.
Stay Calm & Comfortable With Inhaled Sedation
In addition to local anesthesia, you may also benefit from inhaled sedation using laughing gas. Patients who are nervous about dental procedures or who have trouble sitting still in the chair find that this type of dental sedation helps calm their nerves. After we administer the gas, you’ll immediately begin to feel euphoric and dreamy; having your tooth removed will not bother you one bit!
After your procedure, we’ll give you full aftercare instructions for quick and comfortable healing. Your mouth will be good as new in no time.
