Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
A tooth extraction may be deemed necessary in the event of severe infection, trauma to a tooth or as part of a treatment plan to improve your bite function and dental health. Great Smile Dental offers the convenience of complete dental care under one roof, including tooth extractions.
Tooth extractions are typically a simple procedure and are completed in one visit. Most patients are able to be kept comfortable with a local anesthetic. Our office also offers sedation options if needed or requested.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The third molars are also known as the “wisdom teeth” and typically begin to erupt or to make their presence known in the late teen years. A few patients are fortunate to have enough room in their bite to allow for normal tooth eruption and growth. However, most will need to have their wisdom teeth removed due to the impact on overall dental health, the bite and neighboring teeth.
Wisdom tooth removal typically occurs in the late teens and early twenties, before teeth that are impacted or crowded can affect dental health. The procedure can often be performed in the comfort of our Port St. Lucie dental office. We offer dental sedation options for complete comfort and our team will follow up to ensure that you recover well.
