You Deserve a Beautiful Smile
Have you been informed that you need a tooth removed, but don’t know what that involves? At Burley Dentistry, we perform tooth removals and extractions for our patients in the Charlotte, NC area. Below is information regarding the procedure for tooth extractions. Dr. Burley and her team will make sure you get the care you need.
Teeth may need to be removed for a variety of reasons. Whenever possible, we do what we can to save your tooth, but sometimes it needs to be removed.
Wisdom teeth may need to be removed when they cause problems as they come in, such as spacing, infections, and other issues. If you have further questions about why tooth removal may be needed, please ask during your next visit with our Charlotte family dentist or contact our office during business hours.
Modern tooth extraction procedures are very simple. The process starts with cleaning the area and applying a local aesthetic. We gently loosen the tooth in the socket and remove it with forceps. We work hard to ensure the procedure is not stressful and goes as quickly and smoothly as possible.
A local anesthetic is applied to help avoid pain and discomfort during the procedure. If you feel pain, please let us know right away, so we can help you feel comfortable. We offer nitrous oxide, a gas that is inhaled to allow you to relax. If you are nervous about the procedure, nitrous oxide can help you feel at ease.
Our Charlotte dentist performs wisdom tooth extractions in our office. The procedure is similar to normal tooth removal. However, complicated cases are referred to a trusted oral surgeon. Our goal is to ensure that every patient receives the best care possible. If you need all four wisdom teeth removed or require dental sedation, we can refer you to a professional who will get the job done right.
Scheduling an appointment for tooth removal with our Charlotte family dentist is easy. Please contact us by telephone at (704) 842-3430 or send us a message online.
