Teeth Extractions in

At Creating Smiles, we will always prioritize keeping all the teeth in your smile. However, sometimes a tooth extraction may be in the best interest of your oral health. If that’s the case, we will make the process as painless and stress-free as possible.

Teeth Extractions in Lutz

When a tooth has become damaged or decayed, our dentists will always work to restore it to its natural appearance and function through the use of fillings, crowns or other dental treatments. If the damage or decay is too extensive for any of those methods to work, however, we may need to pull the tooth. This will prevent further damage or decay from developing and affecting the gums or jawbone.

A tooth extraction will typically involve local anesthesia to numb the area of the extraction. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, our dentist will remove the tooth with special tools. The actual extraction is very quick and typically patients only feel some pressure. The most important part of a tooth extraction comes after the procedure, during the recovery. It’s important to let the blood clot form by biting down on gauze as the dentist directs.

Once it forms, you should avoid using a straw and stay away from hot and chewy foods. You can use ice packs on the outside of your cheek to reduce swelling. Gently rinsing with warm salt water will also help keep the wound clean.

At Creating Smiles, we also offer wisdom teeth extractions. Your wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt and can cause issues like crowding or impact on your other teeth. We offer local anesthesia, oral sedation or laughing gas as sedative options for this procedure.

Hands down, the best dental office I’ve ever been to. Everyone is happy and helpful. No dental shaming. Excellent knowledge and communication-they took pictures of my teeth and showed me my x-rays so I could see and understand everything that was going on. This is an example of how all healthcare should be.
