Our main goal is to keep your natural teeth healthy and in your mouth for as long as possible, hopefully a lifetime! However, we’re all human and sometimes things happen. There are several circumstances in which having a tooth extracted may be in your best interest.
If you need a tooth extracted, don’t worry, we’ll walk you through the entire process, address any of your concerns, and make sure you are comfortable from start to finish. We will use either a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic to put you to sleep, depending on your individual preferences and needs. We also have sedation available to take the edge off your nerves and help you relax.
Having a root canal is usually no more uncomfortable than having a cavity filled. It’s actually the pain of an infected tooth left untreated that’s much worse than the procedure itself. That’s why you should come see us right away if you’re having tooth pain or sensitivity because the problem will only get worse over time.
At We Smile Dentistry, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area and make sure you don’t feel a thing. Dr. Spagnuolo will make a small access hole in the tooth before using specialized instruments to carefully remove the infection. The root canals and chambers are cleaned, sterilized, and filled to prevent further infection. The process is typically completed with the placement of a porcelain crown to protect the tooth from further damage and restore it to health.
