Removing the teeth is typically a last resort since it’s easier and more affordable to maintain the natural teeth than to maintain dental restorations.
However, there are cases when the removal of a tooth is in your best interest, such as in cases of extreme tooth decay, infection, positioning, or periodontal disease. Our team can provide simple tooth extractions, from the comfort of our Winnipeg dental office.
Comfortable & Quick Extractions
We take your comfort as seriously as your dental health. Before we begin the extraction procedure, we use a local anesthetic to numb the teeth, gums, and jawbone. Throughout, we’ll ask you about your comfort level and stop if we need to apply more anesthetic. Then, we’ll carefully prepare and remove your tooth. Sometimes, a tooth may require sectioning to remove. In these cases, we cut the tooth into sections in order to safely extract it.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions (AT Vista Place Dental Centre?)
The wisdom teeth are the last of the permanent molars to erupt in the mouth, and with their arrival often comes other issues. These teeth can cause overcrowding, can erupt abnormally, and are more susceptible to tooth decay and infections. Your dentist at Vista Place Dental Centre will assess the wisdom teeth before they erupt using dental x-rays. If problems arise, we’ll provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about extraction.
HEALING AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTIONS
Healing after receiving tooth extractions typically takes about 1-2 weeks with the proper aftercare. Some swelling and bleeding are to be expected and can be managed with cold compresses and gauze. If your dentist has prescribed you any antibiotics or painkillers, it is important that you take these as directed.
While the prospect of getting a tooth extracted can feel daunting, our team of dedicated dental professionals is here to help you every step of the way.
