Preserving teeth is usually our goal at Optum Dental Arts. We utilize advanced dental technology to help you achieve optimum dental health. There are times when removal of a tooth is the best option. If a tooth is damaged, diseased or causing oral health problems, a tooth extraction may be recommended. Dr. Roderick Davies and our team can perform stress-free tooth extractions at our dental center in Tampa, FL.
Teeth are connected to the jawbone with one to four roots. To remove a tooth, the roots must be dislodged from the bone. A tooth extraction is a type of oral surgery, even though most extractions do not require incisions to remove the tooth. Planning and preparation are important for a smooth procedure. Dr. Davies uses advanced imaging to view the tooth roots and prepare for the extraction, to reduce chances of complications. Most tooth extractions can be completed quickly in our office.
Stress-Free Tooth Removal
Most people are not excited to have a tooth extracted, but it does not need to be a stressful or painful experience. Our dental center is designed to offer a comfortable, relaxing experience, even during tooth removal surgery. You can relax with a blanket and pillow, watching TV with headphones in our operatory. Our dental team will ensure your tooth is completely numbed before we begin your procedure. If you prefer to be in a deeper relaxed state, we offer sedation dentistry for your procedure.
After your tooth extraction, you should plan to rest and recover for a day or two. There is minimal discomfort – ice, rest and pain relievers can provide you relief if you have any pain or swelling. Our dental team will discuss how to care for your surgical site to ensure it heals properly. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days.
