Austin Teeth Extraction and Oral Surgery
We Make Even Tooth Extractions Comfortable
Though we always work hard to help you keep your natural teeth, there are definitely times when it is necessary to remove a tooth.
How an Infected Tooth Affects Your Health
If a tooth becomes severely damaged, decayed or infected, it can affect the rest of your body as well. With so many studies proving the mouth-body connection and the seriousness infected gums can have on your body, there can be no doubt about the impact an infected tooth will have on your body.
Often the infection spreads from your tooth roots, down into your jawbone leading to bone deterioration and bacterial infections that can make you very sick. At times, we can treat an infected tooth with a root canal but if the infected tooth is neglected or goes unnoticed, oral surgery and tooth extraction is the best method of treatment.
Keeping You Comfortable During Oral Surgery
We care deeply about our patients and about their needs – both emotionally and physically. We know that oral surgery is often a cause for anxiety, so we handle our extraction patients with great care. We will make sure you are absolutely comfortable during the tooth extraction process and may recommend that you take advantage of our sedation options available. Then, put your head on a pillow, snuggle under a blanket and drift away while we take care of your teeth.
Replacing Your Extracted Tooth
After an extraction, it may be necessary to replace the missing tooth to prevent shifting or chewing problems. We offer dental implants, bridges and other comfortable replacements. Replacement options can be discussed with you at the time of the tooth extraction to be sure we find the method that best suits your individual needs.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
We want the best for our patients, but we also know that having services performed in the reassuring and comfortable office they know and trust causes less stress.
As a benefit to our patients, we have a dentist who will come to our office to perform certain oral surgery procedures such as wisdom tooth extractions coupled with IV sedation if necessary.
