Tooth Extraction Ottawa ON

Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview

A tooth extraction may be recommended to address severe tooth decay, damage or to resolve overcrowding of teeth. Tooth extractions are used only when necessary. Our dentists 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 to our office with the use of a local anesthetic. We also offer dental sedation options for anyone who experiences anxiety or fear of the dentist.

Your dentist will discuss appropriate aftercare procedures to minimize swelling and discomfort. Patients generally recover quickly without complication, however, if you experience excessive bleeding at home, be sure to contact our Ottawa, ON dentist office right away.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure for young adults in their late teens to early 20’s as 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.

Tooth Extractions What to Expect

Tooth extractions are a routine procedure that can be completed from our Ottawa dentist office. You will be made comfortable and a local anesthetic will be administered to the area that will be treated. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry options that can be discussed with your dentist prior to the procedure.

Once ready, your dentist will begin the tooth removal procedure. The tooth will be gently removed by the root from the socket. Then the tooth socket will be cleaned and sutured shut to prevent infection. Depending on the location of the extracted tooth, some patients may choose to replace the tooth with a dental implant.

Dr. Barakat provides complete dental implant services from our Ottawa, ON dentist office. For qualifying patients, mini implants may be placed the same day as the tooth extraction for a highly durable and natural tooth replacement. Dr. Barakat also offers dental bridges, dentures and dental implants for the replacement of extracted teeth.
