If you chip a tooth, its health and function can be restored by receiving a simple cosmetic procedure like dental bonding or a crown. But if you’ve suffered dental trauma or are living with a toothache due to untreated infection or disease, you may need a tooth extraction to truly preserve your smile. At Tabor Dental Associates, we’ll always first recommend treating infection and saving a natural tooth with services like deep cleanings or a root canal. However, if unresponsive, removal may be the only way to restore your health.
A damaged or abscessed tooth can quickly lead to more serious issues affecting your other teeth, oral health, and even in some cases, your physical health if the cause is gum disease. Our dentist, Dr. Jayson Tabor provides gentle tooth extraction in Hendersonville, TN to quickly remedy your pain and save your smile from unnecessary harm. With sedation dentistry, a relaxing atmosphere, and affordable pricing, we’ll make your tooth extraction, and the path to restored health, surprisingly simple.
During your initial consultation at Tabor Dental Associates, we’ll examine your problem tooth or teeth and determine if a tooth extraction is needed. If you’re scheduled for tooth extraction in Hendersonville, TN this means we were unable to preserve your natural tooth with more conservative measures or have deemed it unsalvageable due to infection, trauma, or another cause. Dr. Tabor and our dental team routinely complete tooth extraction procedures and are skilled in making them efficient and comfortable.
You’ll receive your tooth extraction at a separate appointment. When you arrive, we’ll first ensure you are comfortable and then numb the gums around your tooth with a local anesthetic. Dr. Tabor is also licensed to provide IV sedation if you would prefer a deeper level of sedation that helps you “sleep” through your appointment. Our patients report that though they experienced slight pressure during the procedure, they remained pain-free throughout their visit. Before you know it, your procedure will be complete! Your healing period will last a few days, during which time you may take over-the-counter medication for any discomfort. We’ll review post-operative instructions and recommendations with you in detail to ensure a healthy and comfortable recovery.
Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment. We recommend many patients replace their extracted tooth, and generally encourage dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
Best of all, in most cases, Dr. Tabor can replace your extracted tooth the same day as your extraction so you’ll never be without a tooth! With both restorative and implant training from the renowned Misch International Implant Institute and Kois Center, Dr. Tabor has completed thousands of dental implant cases, with great success. He utilizes digital software and implant planning technology to ensure your dental implant provides the longest-lasting functional and aesthetic outcomes.
