When it comes to your smile, our team at Family Dentistry of Frisco strives to help you keep your natural teeth whenever possible. For those situations when a tooth can’t be saved, Dr. Paresh B. Patel may recommend removing the tooth to protect your oral health.
Why Remove a Tooth?
There are times when your oral condition requires extracting a tooth so that your smile can be restored to better health and the tooth to function properly:
-You have a severely infected tooth where too much of it is destroyed and affecting the supportive jaw bone.
-You have extensive decay in a tooth that can’t be repaired.
-You have crowding in the mouth where too many of your teeth can’t fit and function correctly
Not only can our dental team put you at ease and gently remove your damaged tooth as comfortably as possible, but we also offer effective tooth replacement options that can restore your smile’s beauty.
With the help of sedation dentistry, you can be comfortable during the removal process:
-Nitrous oxide: also called laughing gas.
-Oral sedation: taking a pill before your appointment so you feel relaxed when you arrive.
-IV sedation: delivered directly into your bloodstream through a vein to help you feel comfortable and relaxed.
If you have a problem with one or more of your teeth, we invite you to call (469) 362-3150 to learn more about tooth extraction. Our goal is to help restore your beautiful, healthy smile!
