Tooth Extractions in San Antonio, TX

Even though we make every effort to save and preserve your natural teeth, there are instances where a tooth or teeth may have to be taken out. A simple extraction takes out a tooth that is visible over the gumline. This is typically done for a tooth that's decayed or damaged and cannot be repaired. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that has not erupted over the gums. Surgical extractions are most frequently performed to take out the wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that do not have enough space to fit into your smile. Regardless of the reason for getting an extraction in Sanchez Dentistry, our team will give you the best care. Our San Antonio, TX practice provides multiple sedation methods, like nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, so you can stay comfortable throughout your treatment. Contact our staff for more information or to schedule an examination to improve your oral health.

Extractions are performed in-office using local anesthesia on the area near the tooth being treated. Different types of sedation may be used, depending on the degree of the procedure and also to help you stay relaxed in case you have some dental worries. When you're prepared, the procedure will begin. In a simple extraction, the tooth will be loosened with a special device known as an elevator before removal. A surgical extraction entails making incisions into your gums to reach the tooth. If needed, the tooth might be broken up into smaller pieces so that it can be removed. Once the tooth has been removed, incisions will be sutured in the gums. You may be prescribed antibiotics that need to be taken before and after the operation — in case you have a current illness, if your immune system is compromised, if the process is extended, or if you have some other specific medical conditions.

Although many San Antonio, TX patients might wish to postpone or avoid their tooth extractions, getting these procedures performed at Sanchez Dentistry immediately after detection can offer the following oral wellness advantages:

  • Relatively fast treatment that can be performed in our office
  • Creates room for implant options to replace the appeal and feel of the missing tooth
  • Performed using a topical anesthetic to dull the area and keep you as comfortable as possible
  • Can work to stop teeth or gum infection
  • Averts impairment and infection in healthy surrounding teeth
