At Joly Dental Care, our top priority is preventing tooth decay and maintaining good general oral health, as well as repairing or improving the state of your existing teeth. However, in the case of severe decay, such as periodontal disease, or irreparable damage, dental extraction is often the easiest and healthiest approach to remedying your particular dental issue.
In addition to decay and damage, dental extractions are sometimes necessary when preparing your mouth for orthodontic treatment, to remove teeth that may be causing shifts, or are in the way of the proper placement of an orthodontic device.
No matter the scenario, Dr. Joly, the family dentist at Edmonton’s Joly Dental Care, will do everything in his power to ensure your dental extraction procedure is carried out as comfortably and professionally as possible, in our sterilized clinic.
First and foremost, patient comfort is at the top of our priority list, which is why our staff and hygienists pay constant attention to your well-being throughout the extraction procedure. Keeping the lines of communication open between dentist and patient allows us to ensure that proper levels of anesthesia are applied to efficiently numb the tooth, jawbone, and gums around the area being treated. An adequate amount of anesthetic will result in the complete absence of pain throughout the process – you will only feel pressure while the dental extraction is taking place.
After the anesthetic is applied, and has taken complete effect, your dentist will proceed with the extraction using specialized and sterilized tools.
Once the tooth is removed, your dentist will immediately take the necessary steps in managing the socket in order to eliminate the risk of extensive bone loss, and prepare you for an eventual tooth replacement option, such as:
The dentists at Joly Dental Care will also provide you with extensive information for post-extraction care, in order to ensure you heal quickly and completely. You will also be given a comprehensive education in regards to tooth replacement options, in order to enable you to make an informed decision that best suits your needs.
If you’re experiencing persistent dental pain, are concerned with the health of your teeth, or have recently suffered dental trauma and need emergency oral care, contact Joly Dental Care clinic in Edmonton immediately. Our dentist will be able to determine whether an extraction is necessary, and outline the process for you.
