Tooth ExtractionsTooth Extractions at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
Lakewood Dental Centre is very welcoming and I like to receive my dental care from here. Before having braces, I had four teeth extracted: two on the top, two on the bottom. That was just to help with crowding because my mouth is pretty crowded. I mean, everything went smoothly. It wasn't a super long process. Then I also had, recently, just about a month ago, I had my wisdom teeth extracted, three of them, that was by Rose and that's when I had the nitro and that went really good. The nitro helps a lot, it just kind of calms you down, kind of forget about what's going on and just kind of keep you relaxed, so that was nice how they offer that here as well. Rose, when she was doing it, she had froze me once and I've had a couple extractions so they kind of know that the one freezing doesn't really go through with me. I need to kind of have another one just because I can still feel it. She was always making sure, since she had known that, that I wasn't feeling anything and that if I needed some more that she would add some more. Just kind of making sure that I was always not feeling any discomfort or anything like that. I get quite a few comments saying, “Oh, you have a really great smile.
A tooth extractions procedure is the process of removing a tooth. If you think you might need a tooth removed, give Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB a call at (204) 977-8515 to schedule an appointment with general dentist Dr. Dhillon or Dr. McDermid. It might even be possible to save your tooth with a root canal, but if not, we also have several replacement teeth options, such as dental implants and dental bridges, that we can discuss after your extraction.
Tooth Extractions Causes
There are many reasons you might need a tooth removed. Just know, no matter the reason, Dr. Dhillon and Dr. McDermid from Winnipeg, MB are here to help you.
- There is not enough room in your mouth for your wisdom teeth
- You have a bad tooth that is causing you pain
- Your tooth is causing overcrowding
- Your tooth experienced a type of trauma
- You have a health issue that makes it necessary
There’s no way to know for sure if you need your tooth removed or why it needs to be removed until you’re seen by a dentist for a comprehensive dental exam. At your exam, we can ask you questions and take a digital X-ray to better understand what your dental health needs are. If you do need your tooth removed, we offer sedation options for oral surgery.
Tooth Extractions Aftercare
After your tooth is removed, Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB will provide you with aftercare instructions. The space in the gums left behind after a tooth is removed is called a socket. It takes time for a tooth socket to heal and fill with new gum tissue. Proper care can minimize risk of the socket becoming infected.
