Baer Dental - Where we treat people, not teeth.
We offer tooth Extraction in Lone Tree, CO
Now more than ever, Americans over the age of 65 still have a few, if not all their natural teeth. With new advances in the dental industry, patients now have tons of new ways of keeping their natural teeth clean and free of bacteria and decay. However, in some cases, no matter how hard we try, our teeth become infected and need to be treated right away.
Your dentist may recommend a root canal procedure which can retain the outer shell of your natural tooth but replace the inner pulp with a filling. Typically, this process can save the natural tooth aesthetically for the patient. In some cases, no matter how hard the dentist may try, an infected tooth or a badly damaged tooth simply needs to be extracted to save the health of the teeth and jawbone that surrounds it.

How Is a Tooth Extracted?
A surgical extraction is a more complicated procedure as it requires the dentist to cut into the gum line to retrieve the tooth. This is usually needed during a wisdom tooth extraction or if a tooth is broken well below the gum line. A local anesthetic should take away the pain felt during these types or extractions. You can also talk to your dentist about Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to take away your nerves before and during the procedure as well!
Using a local anesthetic to numb the surrounding areas, your dental professional will likely loosen up your tooth and pull it out easily sing a tool called an elevator. These procedures are done when the tooth that needs to be extracted has grown well above the gum line for easy access. The dentist will use dental tools to loosen the tooth and lift it up and out of the gum line for a clean extraction.
