At Silver Lake Dental Care in Silver Lake, Everett, Washington, we make it a priority to preserve your natural teeth. If you have a tooth that’s decayed, has experienced trauma, or you have crowding due to the size of your mouth and teeth, you may require an extraction. Dr. Andrew Sholudko is highly-experienced in performing this procedure with a gentle touch and unmatched skill. Call or contact us online for an appointment today.
There are two basic types of extractions :
We always try to avoid any type of surgery. If you have an infection, a root canal or antibiotics may make an extraction unnecessary. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, damaged teeth, or if you plan to have orthodontics, you may need teeth extractions to proceed with the next step in your dental health plan.
It’s pretty straightforward. You’ll be given a local anesthetic or put under sedation, depending on your choice. Dr. Sholudko will perform the extraction, and you may be given medication to take afterward to avoid pain or infection. Tooth extraction is considered surgery, so you’ll need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
It all depends on your situation. In general, here are guidelines to follow after your extraction:
Afterward, we can discuss tooth replacement options to restore the function to your teeth and beauty to your smile. Call or contact Silver Lake Dental Care online to learn about your extraction options and how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
