We Make Even Tooth Extractions Comfortable
The thought of having a tooth pulled is usually not a pleasant idea for most people. At 12 Oaks Dental, we understand how intimidating tooth extractions can be, which is why we do everything possible to make our Austin, TX, area patients comfortable and at ease through this procedure.
How an Infected Tooth Affects Your Health
Though Drs Worob and Barron always work hard to help you keep your natural teeth, there are times when they may need to recommend that a tooth be removed. 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 impacts that infected gums can have on your overall health, there can be no doubt about an infected tooth is a condition that needs to be resolved quickly.
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 tooth is neglected or goes unnoticed, oral surgery and tooth extraction is the best method of treatment.
Keeping You Comfortable During Oral Surgery
At 12 Oaks Dental, 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 one 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. Drs. Worob and Barron will discuss replacement options 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 definitely want the best for our patients, but we also know that having services performed in the reassuring and familiar 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.
