Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
A tooth extraction may be recommended to address severe tooth decay, damage, or to resolve overcrowding teeth issues. Tooth extractions are conducted only when absolutely necessary. Above all, our dentists in Ottawa always attempt to preserve natural teeth with dental fillings or root canals if possible. Our Villanova Dental Studio dentists offer tooth extractions and missing tooth replacement options in the comfortable environment of our Ottawa, ON dentist office.
Tooth extractions are a relatively painless procedure that can be performed in one visit. Our office uses a local anesthetic to effectively numb the area for a pain-free procedure. If you are one of the many Canadians with dental anxiety, or fear of the dentist, we can offer you dental sedation options. Most noteworthy is the fact that they will calm you and have you feeling relaxed during your treatment.
After the quick tooth removal process, your dentist will discuss appropriate aftercare procedures. It is important to minimize swelling and discomfort. Patients generally recover quickly without complication. However, if you experience excessive bleeding at home, be sure to contact our office right away.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure for young adults in their late teens to early 20’s. This is when the wisdom teeth typically begin to emerge. Our family dentist office provides complete wisdom tooth removal services for patients of all ages. Commonly, wisdom teeth are removed because they are impacted in the bone, or present a potential overcrowding problem that will detrimentally affect the bite. Adults get their wisdom teeth removed because of infections or decay. Impacted wisdom teeth are more likely to cause cavities and gum infections because of their positions. Consider getting your wisdom teeth removed before any issues arise.
