Tooth Extractions in Bixby, OK
At Spartan Family Dentistry, we’ve vowed to always try and save your natural tooth. However, there are certain situations when this may not be possible. These include:
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Severe tooth decay
- Teeth with extensive damage
- Preparation for future orthodontic treatment
If an extraction is the best option, Dr. Jelsing will explain the procedure to you and make sure you feel comfortable before we start. She’ll ensure your comfort by using a local anesthetic to numb the area around your tooth. If you begin to feel nervous (despite the anesthetic), we’ll provide you with sedation dentistry to help you relax.
When you are comfortable, we’ll gently rock your tooth to widen your socket and promptly remove your tooth. You’ll be asked to bite down on a gauze to protect the exposed area. Then, if needed, you’ll be given guidance on your restoration options.
I had a great experience with this dentist. Everyone did a wonderful job. I definitely recommend Spartan Family Dentistry if you're looking for a new dentist.
