You may have been told you need a tooth extraction by the dentist to improve your oral health. At Paul L. Evans, DDS, we are happy to discuss with you on what to expect with tooth extractions in Grass Valley, California, but here are the most important things to consider:
- Would removing the tooth be the best solution for your situation? Sometimes, dentists think they can save a tooth with root canal therapy, but find out afterward, a tooth extraction would have been best, or vice versa. Ensure you know what is right for you.
- If you opt to have the tooth removal, know the ins and outs of the surgery and what to expect with pre-and post-op instructions. Knowledge is power, and when you are armed with it, it can make the experience much easier.
- What about anesthesia? Some patients can be numbed and have no issue with a tooth extraction, while others need to be sedated. Talk to Dr. Paul L. Evans about your options, to ensure your experience is positive and carries little discomfort and pain as possible.
- What types of options are available for replacing the lost tooth. To ensure your bite is right and to restore full function and the aesthetics of your smile, you may consider getting an implant or a bridge, to close the gap between teeth. The dentist would have a good idea of what may be the right solution, so ensure you discuss the possibilities.
Our goal is to provide excellent dental care, so please call us at 530.273.4442 for an appointment with the dentist. We want to see you have a beautiful smile!
