At Midwest Family Dental Care, we aim to protect the health and beauty of your smile and to preserve your natural oral health as much as possible.
However, in some cases, an extraction may be the only option. An extraction refers to the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. It may need to be performed for any of the following reasons:
Prior to commencement of the extraction procedure, we will take an X-ray of your teeth to determine the best way to extract it. Local anesthesia is administered so that you do not feel any pain during the extraction process. We also offer options for laughing gas and IV sedation depending upon the complexity of the procedure and the number of teeth to be extracted. The tooth is carefully pulled out from its socket, the area is flushed, and a gauze pad is placed to control bleeding. We will provide you with instructions for post-surgical care.
For more information about teeth extraction procedures and post-op care instructions, please feel free to call our office. Our offices are located in three convenient locations in Michigan and Indiana.
