Extractions in Barrie, ON
The best dental care includes services and treatments that preserve the healthy structure of your teeth. At Park Place Dental, we’re committed to the goal of making sure that your smile remains healthy and strong for many years.
However, there are times when the healthiest solution is the removal of a tooth.
Just the idea of losing a tooth can be an upsetting experience for anyone. In the first place, you’re losing a tooth you thought you’d have for a long time. But then you must deal with your fears about the procedure itself.
That’s why we do everything we can to make your procedure as comfortable and free of stress as possible. You can be confident knowing you are in good hands at Park Place Dental. Our doctors have been performing successful extractions for years and know exactly what to do to make sure you’re comfortable.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
At Park Place Dental, we prefer not to extract a tooth until we are sure that there are no other more conservative options available.
There are times when a tooth needs to be extracted on an emergency basis, which happens in the case of dental trauma or a severely infected root canal. But other circumstances can arise where a planned extraction is necessary to preserve your overall oral health:
- A decayed or broken tooth is damaged beyond repair and we’ve exhausted all other treatment options.
- In the case of advanced gum disease, we may recommend extraction to save the gums and the rest of the teeth.
- We’re preparing for dentures or orthodontic treatment and need to remove some teeth for the best results.
- A wisdom tooth has erupted in such a way that it compromises surrounding teeth.
Your Comfort Is Our Top Priority
Our doctors have performed many extractions for both adults and children. Their years of experience, combined with our state-of-the-art technology, makes the procedure safe and efficient. This, in turn, reduces your stress as well as any post-operative discomfort.
An extraction can be intimidating, but it does not need to be stressful. At Park Place Dental, we’re pleased to offer effective sedation methods that will help keep you calm during your procedure.
Depending on your individual needs, we may suggest nitrous oxide as well as oral sedation so that you remain comfortable. If you would prefer to go to sleep during the extraction, we are also pleased to offer in-house IV sedation.
Most importantly, though, we’re here to support you with care and compassion. When you’re with us, you have our complete and undivided attention. We always allow enough time during your appointment so we can be sure that you receive the care and attention you deserve. You will never be rushed through a procedure so we can get to the next patient!
Caring and Compassionate Treatment
It’s understandable that you may feel intimidated by the procedure. But we can make your anxiety a thing of the past by ensuring that you feel safe and secure in the hands of professionals who are always focused on your needs.
In many cases, we can plan an extraction in advance. But if you’re in pain, removal of the tooth may be the only option available to avoid further discomfort. We always set aside time for our emergency patients, and we’ll do everything we can to see you as soon as possible – often the same day.
