At Four Seasons Family Dentistry, we advocate preventive dental care as the most effective way to ensure that your family’s teeth stay healthy. We always look for the most conservative treatments to protect your oral health and keep your teeth in good shape. But if we can’t fix a damaged tooth with a filling, crown, or other restorative treatment, the tooth will need to be removed.
Comfortable, Supportive Care
For many people, a routine trip to the dentist is stressful enough. But the idea of tooth extraction can be overwhelming for almost anyone. We’d like to put your mind at ease – Dr. Parikh and our team have helped many people through treatment with our gentle tooth extraction. We will handle every step of your procedure with care, compassion, and the utmost concern for your well being.
There are very few situations where extraction of a tooth is the preferred solution. But there are times when tooth extraction is our last option for protecting your overall oral health:
- A severely decayed tooth cannot be repaired using traditional methods.
- A tooth has broken in such a way that it must be removed.
- Teeth are overcrowded and extraction is necessary for orthodontic treatment.
- In preparation for placement of partial or full dentures
Calming, Supportive Environment
It’s normal to feel anxious and a little overwhelmed when faced with a procedure like having a tooth extracted. But you can be confident that our team will provide you and your family with the personalized, gentle care that you deserve.
We know that we can provide the best care when you feel confident and informed about the procedure. Before we agree on treatment, Dr. Parikh will take the time to talk to you about the process and what you can expect. We will take all the time necessary to answer your questions and explain why extraction is the best treatment choice.
If appropriate, we can offer nitrous oxide sedation to help you relax. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild form of sedation that is effective for many people. All you have to do is sit back and breathe normally; a trained member of our team will be with you at all times to make sure you are completely safe and comfortable.
