When something is difficult we say it’s “like pulling teeth.” Extract those thoughts! Los Coches Dentistry offers non-invasive, pain-free tooth extraction conveniently within our dental practice. Teeth are gently removed in-house using a non-surgical approach which means less swelling and faster healing times.
Dr. William Neff, DDS may recommend removing a potentially harmful tooth if it’s threatening the position of other healthy teeth such as a broken tooth, teeth with significant tooth decay or patients with advanced gum disease.
Tooth Extraction Anxiety: Whether you’ll be having a wisdom tooth extraction or a tooth needs to be removed due to significant decay, anxiety is understandable. Most tooth extractions are simple procedures, taking just a few minutes to complete. Los Coches Dentistry’s compassionate staff will explain the process in detail and answer any questions you may have beforehand. Local anesthesia is generally used to numb the jawbone, tooth and surrounding gums for a pain-free extraction. Nitrous Oxide or “laughing gas” and calming amenities are available in our spa-like dental practice to ease anxiety.
Wisdom Teeth Evaluation: The most common tooth extractions are wisdom teeth. Early evaluation in the mid-teenage years and extraction is recommended. X-rays evaluate the position of wisdom teeth and predict if they are a present or future problem. Modern diagnostic equipment is combined with expert techniques and a personable staff to examine oral development at Los Coches Dentistry.
Why Remove Wisdom Teeth? Wisdom teeth, also referred to as “third molars,” are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt in a person’s mouth and are generally unnecessary for good dental health.
Why Wisdom Teeth Can Jeopardize Your Dental Health: The biggest concerns are if wisdom teeth do not erupt through the gum and are not in a normal position. This crowds the roots of other teeth, forcing them out of alignment, and damaging your bite. The jaw is typically too small to accommodate normal wisdom teeth resulting in gum and jaw discomfort or swelling, and poses a greater risk of developing gum disease.
