Tooth Extractions Can Help
Extracting a tooth can benefit your health, relieve your pain, and improve your smile. Before he extracts your tooth, Dr. Ben Whitted DDS and the Fountain Valley Dental Team will recommend or provide medications that will soothe you and make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible.
During a simple extraction, one of Fountain Valley Dental’s experienced dentists will first loosen the tooth, then gently remove it. In a surgical extraction, he will make a small incision in the gum, then remove the tooth. Once your tooth is removed, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your tooth pain is over and you will have better oral health in the future.
If the idea of an extraction or root canal scares you or you have anxiety when you visit the dentist, Fountain Valley Dentist offers Sedation Dentistry services to help you relax and feel calm during the procedure.
You May Benefit From a Tooth Extraction If:
- You have an abscessed tooth.
- Your tooth is severely decayed.
- Your permanent teeth will block other teeth from coming in.
- You have baby teeth that need to make room for permanent teeth.
- You want to avoid the complications that wisdom teeth may cause.
- You have other overall health issues that may be worsened if teeth become infected.
Advantages of a Tooth Extraction
- They are an affordable option to improve your oral health.
- They can prevent infection from spreading.
- They can provide more space in your mouth for an improved smile
- They can provide better overall health
Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth becomes badly decayed or infected, Dr. Whitted can save the tooth with a root canal. Decayed teeth can damage the nerves, causing discomfort and even pain. We don’t want you to have to live with the constant discomfort caused by infection or decay, so we provide root canal therapy.
During root canal therapy, the dentist will remove the nerve and pulp from the inside of the tooth. He will then clean the tooth out and seal it to protect and strengthen it.
Advantages of a Root Canal
- You can function normally without pain.
- It is possible to salvage the tooth if you don’t want to extract it.
- There is no need for implants.
- You should see an improved appearance of your teeth.
