Most patients and dentists would agree on one thing – it’s almost always best to keep your natural teeth. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible. For whatever reason, Dr. Unser may occasionally recommend that a tooth be extracted. Although the thought of having a tooth pulled may sound a little frightening to some patients, the truth is that tooth extractions are quite common, and Dr. Unser and his staff perform this service routinely for their patients from throughout the Lakewood, CO, area.
Why You Should Choose 20th Avenue Dentistry for Tooth Extractions
Dr. Unser brings over 30 years of experience to his family of patients. Throughout that time, he has performed a wide variety of procedures on a regular basis – including tooth extractions. Dr. Unser and his staff understand that tooth extractions can be a daunting prospect for any patient. That’s why they offer a variety of sedation alternatives to their patients, ensuring that those patients are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure.
About the Tooth Extraction Process
Before the procedure begins, Dr. Unser provides his patient with whatever form of sedation is most appropriate for that individual. The extraction itself is done as quickly as possible, and Dr. Unser provides patients with a full set of instructions on how to properly care for the extraction site after the procedure – in order to speed up the healing time and reduce or eliminate any discomfort.
Tooth extractions could be necessary for a variety of reasons: from a tooth with an infected pulp to gum disease to avoidance of infection for patients with a compromised immune system. Dr. Unser can help you to decide whether extraction is the right solution for you.
