Tooth Extractions In Lewiston & Clarkston, WA

Tooth Extractions

Your health is our number one priority at Canyon Dental. In some cases, the best thing for your health is a tooth extraction. Before recommending tooth removal, though, we investigate all other restorative treatment options first. You may feel nervous about undergoing a tooth extraction, so we do everything possible to alleviate your concerns and ensure your comfort.

Tooth Extraction Procedure
Tooth Extractions

The tooth extraction process begins with x-rays of the area. We also discuss with you your medical and dental history. This information can guide us in creating a precise and effective treatment plan. To begin the procedure, we’ll administer a local anesthetic so that while we work, you just experience pressure, not pain. Once the tooth is removed, we’ll send you home with post-op guidelines and recommendations that will help you heal and return to normal health.

Tooth Extractions FAQ

Why do wisdom teeth hurt?

There can be discomfort when wisdom teeth erupt, just as when your other teeth came in during your youth. If wisdom teeth come in incorrectly, you could feel pain because they are pushing on your other teeth or there could be an infection.

When is it necessary to remove teeth?

The reasons to remove a tooth: you have a severe tooth infection, your tooth is fractured or damaged beyond repair, your wisdom teeth are impacted, or wisdom teeth are causing crowding of the other teeth.

Is there a difference between a simple and surgical tooth extraction?

When a tooth is visible above the gum line and can easily be pulled out with instruments, that’s known as a simple extraction. However, a surgical extraction is when the tooth has broken under the gum line or isn’t fully erupted.
