Gentle Tooth Extractions in Las Vegas NV

Tooth extraction, the intentional removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone, is a dental procedure performed by a highly qualified professional, such as an oral surgeon or a general dentist. 

Millennium Dental has qualified dentists who are exceptionally skilled in surgical procedures, including tooth extractions.

With their extensive knowledge and experience, these professionals perform tooth extractions for various reasons, including severe decay and damage, overcrowding, and preparation for orthodontic treatment. 

Tooth extraction is critical to maintaining good oral health for a variety of reasons:

  • Resolution of Dental Issues
    Extraction is required when a tooth is severely decayed or irreparably damaged. This prevents infection from spreading and provides immediate relief from pain and discomfort. By removing the affected tooth, the dentist can eliminate the source of the pain and prevent further complications, offering a significant sense of relief and comfort to the patient. 
  • Orthodontic Treatment    
    Tooth extraction is frequently included in orthodontic treatment plans to correct malocclusions (misalignments) and overcrowding. This proactive approach creates space within the dental arch, allowing for proper alignment of remaining teeth and increasing the effectiveness of orthodontic appliances like braces or aligners.
  • Periodontal Health  
    Severe gum disease (periodontitis) can cause teeth to loosen and become unstable.   In such cases, extraction may be necessary to treat advanced periodontal disease and prevent infection from spreading to other tissues.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal
    Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically erupt in late adolescence or early adulthood and can cause impaction, crowding, and infection due to limited space and improper positioning. Extraction of problematic wisdom teeth can help to avoid pain, disease, and damage to adjacent teeth, gums, and jawbone. 

Steps In the Tooth Extraction Process: 

  1. A thorough examination evaluates the tooth’s condition and the patient’s overall oral health.
  2. Local anesthesia ensures a painless procedure, numbing only the area around the tooth.
  3. The tooth is then loosened with a unique tool and gently extracted from its socket.
  4. Depending on the severity of the case and the patient’s specific needs, sedation (which induces a relaxed state) may be used to ensure comfort during the procedure.
  5. The patient receives personalized post-operative care instructions. 
  6. By following your dentist’s instructions for pain management, oral hygiene practices, and dietary restrictions, such as avoiding hard or chewy foods, hot beverages, and alcohol, you are taking an active role in your recovery.
  7. It’s important to note that while tooth extraction is a standard and safe procedure, there are potential risks and complications, such as infection, bleeding, or damage to surrounding teeth or structures. Our caring dentist will discuss these with you during the examination.
