What Are Tooth Extractions?
Even though Dr. Ernest De Paoli makes every effort to conserve and preserve your natural teeth, there are instances in which a tooth or teeth might need to be extracted. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gumline. This is typically done for a tooth that's damaged or decayed beyond repair. A surgical extraction takes out a tooth that hasn't erupted above the gumline. Surgical extractions are frequently performed to remove impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, that do not have sufficient room to fit into your smile. No matter the reason for having an extraction at Advanced Smiles, our team will give you the best care. Our Frisco, TX office provides multiple sedation techniques, such as nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, which means you can remain comfortable during your treatment. Contact our staff to learn more or to schedule an examination with Dr. De Paoli to boost your oral health.
What to Expect from Tooth Extractions
Extractions are performed in our office using local anesthesia on the area near the tooth being removed. Other kinds of sedation may be used, depending on the extent of the extraction and to help you stay relaxed in case you have some dental worries. As soon as you are prepared, Dr. De Paoli will start the procedure. For a simple extraction, Dr. De Paoli will loosen up the tooth using a special device known as an elevator prior to removal. A surgical extraction involves making incisions in your gums to access the tooth. If necessary, the tooth may be broken up into smaller pieces so that it can be taken out. When the tooth is removed, Dr. De Paoli will suture the incision in the gums. He can write a prescription for antibiotics in case you have a current illness, if your immune system is weak, if the process is prolonged, or if you have some other special medical conditions.
Advanced Smiles Reviews
I love this team! I've had so many issues in the past that I'm terrified of the dentist in general (I can't even take my 10 year old). Dr. De Paoli's team have always done their best to make me comfortable. Well, they surpassed any expectations I had yesterday. I had to have a wisdom tooth out, it just wasn't going to wait for the Covid-19 to be over. In the past I would have gone to an oral surgeon for IV sedation but we just didn't have that luxury this time. He and Karen took their time, made sure everything was numb and boom! it was out, no pain at all! I know I'll still be nervous about going, that just doesn't go away overnight, but my confidence has increased 10 fold! In one visit he has given me the confidence that I can do any work without IV sedation. Thank you!!!!!!
