Tooth Extractions in Houston, TX
Despite your best efforts, sometimes, teeth need to be removed to protect your health. After discussing other possibilities, and you’ve decided on extraction, we’ll be with you every step of the way. Your well-being always takes priority in any treatment decision. Some patients prefer sedation to help with oral surgery. We can review these options in your treatment plan. You can trust that we take every measure to ensure even minor surgical procedures are as comfortable as possible.
Some teeth are removed more easily than others. Our Artistic Dentistry team takes pride in helping patients feel at ease with modern anesthetics to start every procedure. Once anesthesia settles in, Drs. Nimri and Zingalis will use specialized instruments to elevate the tooth out of place. You will receive specific post-op instructions to help you care for the area after your procedure. We’ll also provide you with a prescription for any medications needed during the healing period.
While our immediate concern is the short-term management of your care, we will also discuss your long-term plans for replacing missing teeth. Leaving a gap is always an option, but spaces in your smile can affect your appearance and challenge functions that are important to consider. Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces, minimizing the effects of an unbalanced bite to prevent issues later in life.
Although our primary goal is to keep your teeth healthy and functional, an extraction is sometimes the best way to preserve the overall health of your mouth. Teeth help nourish our bodies and support our confidence. Together, we will help find a game plan that fits your short and long-term goals.
