Tooth Removal / Extractions
When you come to Houston Uptown Dentists to have a tooth taken out, we try and make it as easy as possible for you. We make you comfortable through the use of local anesthesia. We never start a procedure until you're completely numb. We're very gentle when we take the tooth out. We provide you with thorough post-operative instructions to make the recovery at home as easy as possible. After you have a tooth taken out, if you're interested in having an implant done we offer socket preservation, which is bone graft placed into the site where the tooth was taken out to preserve that area of bone for future implant placement.
At our Houston, TX dentist office, Dr. Juarez, Dr. Lindskog, and our highly trained team will get you out of pain fast and restore your oral health! We also have many tooth replacement options to complete your full smile.
Reasons You May Need A Tooth Removal / Extraction
We will do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth before recommending an extraction. But depending on your particular situation, there are many reasons teeth may need to removed, including:
- Severe damage or decay
- Infection inside your tooth that cannot be removed with a root canal
- Wisdom teeth that are not coming in correctly
- Crowding in your mouth
- Making room for dentures or other restorative options
The Tooth Removal Process
We will use state-of-the-art digital X-rays to examine your particular situation and plan your extraction. Then, we will:
- Numb your mouth so you won’t feel a thing
- Gently remove the problem tooth or teeth
Following your procedure, our Houston, TX dentist and staff will provide advice concerning the healing process. Once you are healed, we can then replace your missing tooth or teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures.
Dental Sedation During Your Tooth Extractions
We’ll do everything we can to put you at ease when you visit us. If you happen to be experiencing dental anxiety or don’t want to feel anything during your extraction, we can help with our dental sedation options, including:
- Laughing gas
- Oral conscious sedation
- IV sedation
Our calming, soothing team can also help entertain you with 3-D video glasses equipped with Netflix and headphones.
So you won’t feel rushed, we can even provide longer appointments by request!
