Teeth Extractions at Vivid Dental, Houston TX

Treating every patient with conservative methods is something we strive for at Vivid Dental in Houston TX. The teeth extraction is recommended only when unavoidable, and after consideration is given to the overall benefits of such treatment. Tooth extraction is a standard part of dentistry, warranted in scenarios such as:

  • When one permanent tooth is impeding the growth of another
  • When Impending orthodontic treatment calls for more space
  • When a tooth has sustained irreparable damage
  • When wisdom teeth that have insufficient space to come in

Most extractions are simple, meaning that the teeth have already emerged through gum tissue. The extraction procedure in such instances is quick and painless with local anesthetic. Our team uses gentle, careful techniques to protect surrounding teeth and tissues, and to provide a comfortable dental experience. Following the extraction of a tooth or teeth, swelling or discomfort can usually be controlled easily if post-op instructions are followed carefully.

Wisdom teeth may be handled through a simple extraction, if these third molars have broken through the gums, if not, it may require a surgical extraction. Surgical extractions also may be indicated in situations where the teeth are badly decayed. The removal of wisdom teeth usually takes place when a patient is in his or her teens or early twenties, and is a routine process performed after the application of local anesthetic. Wisdom tooth extraction may require more aftercare, which we will provide at the time of treatment, but recovery should be uneventful.

Patients who feel anxious about having a tooth or teeth extracted may benefit from the use of nitrous oxide, a mild sedative delivered through a comfortable nasal mask in conjunction with local anesthetic. Nitrous oxide takes effect quickly, and leaves the system just as quickly, making it ideal for patients of all ages.

At Vivid Dental, all of your needs are handled with care and compassion. Our primary goal in tooth extraction is the restoration of optimal oral health, beauty, and to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Most extraction procedures are handled within our office. When warranted for the best approach to complex cases, we will collaborate with the most appropriate specialist to coordinate care.
