Sometimes the only way to improve a situation is by removing what isn’t working. This applies to life and to your oral health. Occasionally, a tooth extraction is the best method for preventing further infection and protecting your surrounding teeth. Whether it's a matter of tooth decay or the result of a dental emergency, our Schererville team knows exactly when tooth extractions are necessary for optimal oral health.Schedule an appointment
At Schererville Family Dentistry, we strongly believe in tooth removal prevention. We gladly perform cleanings, provide fillings, and recommend lifestyle changes to keep your teeth in great condition.
However, we also understand that you may have suffered from advanced periodontal disease, infection, or impaction. If we find a tooth damaged beyond repair, we’ll perform the dental extraction for you in our office.
To start, we’ll thoroughly and carefully examine the affected tooth. Next, we’ll X-ray the area to better understand the tooth’s shape and position as well as its attachment to the surrounding bone.
When ready for the emergency tooth extraction, we’ll offer you Non IV sedation or anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the tooth extraction. From there, we’ll loosen and remove the tooth, giving you recovery instructions to keep your pain and discomfort to a minimum.
After you recover, we may suggest that you fill in the gap with a dental bridge, implant, or dentures. These artificial options can restore your smile and keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of place after having the tooth pulled.
If you require tooth extractions in Schererville or the surrounding area, give us a call at 219.322.3232. We provide emergency dental services, so that we can quickly ease your pain if you ever need a tooth pulled.Schedule an Appointment
