Quick and Painless Tooth Extractions in Brandon, MI
If you have a tooth that needs to be extracted, it is normal to be scared about the procedure. Many patients experience the same doubt and worry that you are right now. You are probably worried that the extraction is going to hurt and that it will cause pain, right?
At Brandon Family Dental we take your comfort level seriously, and we will never perform a procedure that we think would cause great pain. Dr. Harrell is experienced and skilled in tooth extractions in Ortonville, MI to provide as little discomfort as possible.
Before we recommend a tooth extractions, we will try to save the tooth as best as possible. We have other options, including tooth-colored fillings, inlays and onlays, crowns, and root canals, that can be performed to salvage the tooth. Sometimes, however, it is not possible to save the tooth, and in these instances, the tooth must be removed to prevent damage to surrounding teeth or the rest of your mouth.
What Happens During an Extraction?
During the extraction procedure, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once numb, Dr. Harrell will gently loosen the tooth or teeth that need to be removed. Once the tooth is loose enough, we will then remove it from your mouth with the greatest level of care possible.
We perform almost all extractions right here in our office and do not refer out unless you have a serious and extreme condition. We also specialize in wisdom teeth removal for your convenience. If your impacted wisdom teeth are causing you pain or discomfort, come see us right away!
Tooth Replacement for Extractions
After we have extracted your teeth, we will discuss your tooth replacement options with you. You may benefit from immediate implants, or you can wait and have implants, a bridge, or dentures, depending on your situation, preferences, and the structure of your mouth.
If you are afraid of your upcoming procedure, you may want to speak with Dr. Harrell about sedation dentistry. We use three different types of sedation: nitrous oxide, oral sedation (free!), and IV sedation. It is important that we determine the best sedation option for you based on your health and your needs. The most common forms are nitrous oxide and oral sedation. You will be awake during both of these treatment options, and we will monitor you closely to ensure you are safe throughout the procedure.
