Painless tooth Extraction
Before the dentist extracts a tooth, they will take x-rays to understand exactly what is going on with the tooth. This allows them to assess the underlying bond structures and the root of the tooth. Having this information is important so they can plan the best way to remove the tooth. Once the dentist develops a plan, they can administer an appropriate sedation option. This can help ease anxiety, as well as reduce or eliminate the pain associated with the procedure. They have several options available including “laughing gas” to reduce anxiety and
anesthesia numb the area. Once the area around the tooth is numb, the tooth can be extracted without pain. This entire procedure typically takes about an hour per tooth. Since the dentist will be using sedation dentistry, you will need someone else to drive you to and from the dental clinic.
