What Are Tooth Extractions?
Dr. Kevin E. Miller makes every effort to conserve and maintain your teeth; however, there are instances where a tooth or teeth might need to be extracted. A simple extraction removes a tooth that's visible over the gums. This is normally done for a damaged or decayed tooth that cannot be repaired. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that hasn't erupted above the gums. Surgical extractions are frequently done to remove impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, that don't have enough space to fit into your mouth. For tooth extractions, our team in Helena, MT provides multiple sedation methods, such as nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, which means you can remain comfortable and calm throughout your treatment. Get in touch with Miller Family Dentistry for more information or to schedule a dental exam.
What Can I Expect from Tooth Extractions?
Tooth extractions are done in our Helena, MT office using local anesthesia on the area around the tooth being worked on. Other kinds of sedation methods can be used, depending on the degree of the extraction and to help you stay relaxed in case you have any dental anxieties. When you're ready, Dr. Miller will begin the procedure. In a simple extraction, he will loosen the tooth using a special device called an elevator prior to removing it. A surgical extraction involves making incisions into your gums to get to the tooth. If needed, the tooth may be broken up into smaller pieces so that it can be taken out. Once the tooth is removed, Dr. Miller will stitch the incision in your gums. He may also prescribe antibiotics before and after the process, if needed.
