The goal of dentistry is to heal and save every tooth for as long as possible. Doing so benefits your long-term oral health, but there are situations where your dentist exhausts every option for keeping the tooth and needs to recommend a tooth extraction.
We understand that it can be upsetting to learn that you need to have a tooth removed. But the easiest way to get a tooth out fast and pain-free in Durham, NC is to turn to the dentists at The Smile Shop for help.
Comfortable Tooth Extractions in Durham, NC
If our dentists recommend tooth extraction, you can be confident that they will do everything in their power to ensure that you have a comfortable, stress-free experience. We will help you understand why we recommend removing the tooth and how it will benefit your long-term oral health.
Your comfort is our priority, and before we begin, we will make sure you are settled comfortably in the dental chair. At this time, we will also be happy to answer any questions you have so that you feel informed and understand what to expect.
Our dentists will administer a local anesthetic so we can numb your tooth so you don’t feel any pain. We won’t begin the procedure until we are sure you are completely numb. If you ever feel uncomfortable, let us know, and we will stop immediately and administer more anesthetic to keep you comfortable and numb.
We will then extract the tooth using specialized dental instruments to make the process as efficient and comfortable as possible. After your procedure, we will provide instructions for aftercare at home. You should plan to take the rest of the day off so your body can rest and recover, and you can take care of the extraction site.
