Whether trauma, severe periodontal disease, abscess, or big cavity, some teeth may not be restorable. Whatever the reason may be sometimes teeth have to come out. Our highly skilled dentist perform these extractions including wisdom teeth! We numb you up the same way you would get a filling. We gently remove the teeth and clean out the infection. You go to work the same day! Our in office lab can construct a same day denture so you will never be without any teeth!
While most procedures are done with just local anesthetics, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and sedation is always available for anxious patients. Our dentist in our state of the art facility always uses the most advanced technology including instantaneous, comfortable digital X-rays. Each treatment room is equipped with high definition flat screen televisions and with WiFi accessibility to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
After-care instructions usually focus on pain relief and healthy healing. We may recommend that you place a cold pack or an ice bag on your cheek. You should avoid activities that may hinder healing such as smoking, drinking through a straw, and vigorously brushing or rinsing your teeth. Your Shine Dental Associates dentist may recommend that you alter your diet initially to include soft foods.
