Tooth Removal At Reynolds Dental

The Tooth Extraction Process

Expressions such as “like getting teeth pulled” show what society at large believes about the dental extraction process, but that unpleasant mental image is a very outdated one. A modern dental practice such as Reynolds Dental has all the right tools to ensure that your extraction will be as comfortable as possible. It usually takes less than an hour, and with a local anesthetic and IV sedation, if necessary, the tooth can be painlessly removed.

When Extraction Is The Best Option

A tooth may require extraction for a variety of reasons. A partially impacted tooth (such as a wisdom tooth) that does not have adequate room to normally erupt in the jaw bone, an infected tooth that is the source of infection and pain, and a tooth that has fractured or broken are diagnoses indicating tooth removal.
