When given a choice, our dentist will do everything possible to preserve all your natural teeth. Sometimes, maintaining your oral health means extracting a tooth that’s beyond saving or a threat to your dental health. If you need a surgical tooth extraction in Lubbock, Texas, you can trust our team at Lone Star Smiles for a comfortable and safe procedure.
Dr. Cole Sutak performs a simple extraction when your tooth sits above the gum line and is strong enough to be pulled out of its socket in one piece. However, if your tooth is broken below the gum line level, surgical extraction will be recommended. Additionally, if you have an impacted wisdom tooth, it must be surgically removed.
Whether you need simple or surgical extraction, you are in safe hands. Dr. Sutak and the team uses safe and light touch techniques and tools to perform dental extractions comfortably with a successful outcome.
A simple extraction involves numbing your gums and using simple tools to pull out the tooth. A surgical extraction is a bit more elaborate. After examining your teeth, we administer anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable. Then, we incise your gums to expose the trapped tooth.
While the tooth isn’t fused with the bone, it’s anchored in the jawbone with ligament fibers. We use special tools to loosen these fibers for easier tooth removal. In most cases, the dentist may break the tooth into pieces to remove it easily. We then remove the broken-up tooth piece by piece and then suture up the surgical site to pave the way for healing.
Taking optimal care of your mouth after a dental extraction is vital. The objective is to reduce discomfort and chances of infection. Before leaving, our dental team will give you post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery.
