Losing a tooth, regardless of the reason, is never an enjoyable experience. At Rolling Hills Dentistry, our goal is to do everything possible to prevent tooth loss with general dentistry. However, when a tooth does need to be removed for the health and well-being of our patient, we offer gentle, safe tooth extractions.
With the many advances in dentistry, teeth that once would need to be pulled can now be saved. Even severely infected teeth can undergo a root canal and be preserved if caught in time. But even with these advances, there are times when a tooth is too damaged or diseased to repair, or the tooth is posing a threat to the person’s health. When this is the case, our dentist Dr. Blake Winokur can carefully perform a tooth extraction.
Most teeth are quick and simple to remove, especially those in the front of the mouth with only one or two roots. Molars can be a little more difficult, but Dr. Winokur has the expertise to quickly remove these teeth as well. We offer sedation options for our patients undergoing tooth extraction to minimize the stress of the procedure.
