Reason for Teeth Extractions

Abingdon Family Dentistry has more than 30 years of experience providing this essential service. While we will always make every effort to preserve your natural teeth, health and wellness sometimes requires tooth removal. Severe damage from decay, gum disease, and trauma from an accident can crack or loosen a tooth too much to be restored. Misaligned or non-functioning teeth can also cause this issue.

In children, sometimes a baby tooth will hang around too long, preventing the adult tooth from coming into place. We will also perform essential wisdom teeth extractions, protecting patients of any ages from the pain of these often problematic third molars. Preparation for dentures can also require the removal of remaining teeth in the area.

The Painless Process of Tooth Removal

Most of the fear associated with tooth extraction comes from anticipating the pain. However, our highly skilled dentist uses the most up-to-date procedures, making this no more painful than the rest of our pain-free dentistry! We focus on careful manipulation of the tooth and the surrounding area to ensure a quick, trouble-free extraction. All of our procedures take advantage of the advances in sedation dentistry. From pain-free anesthetic shots to nitrous oxide treatment, we guarantee painless numbing for this important procedure.

Teeth removal begins with a thorough exam and high-tech targeted x-ray scan of the area. This will help us prepare a removal strategy, and anticipate any potential problems and correct for them. The extraction will proceed painlessly, and you will only feel a little pressure as the tooth is removed. Throughout the process, we will keep you comfortable and ensure that your anxiety is relieved. Once the tooth has been removed, a gauze strip will prevent bleeding, and we will sometimes prescribe antibiotics to expedite the healing process. Most of our patients are ready for tooth replacement after one or two weeks.
