I like to urge my patients for regular checkup. When there's a tooth that cannot be restored, that needs to be extracted, that's our last resort. And we try to, I try to prevent us getting there. So we want to prevent any kind of extraction. We want to keep your teeth healthy, and we want to prevent you getting there. Because once you lose that tooth, it's a very expensive fix.
I understand dental anxiety because I have it. So I go over the entire procedure. First, I want to make sure the patient is completely numb. We also have (inaudible). If they have any kind of dental anxiety, we provide (inaudible) for patients. If they don't want to do (inaudible), then we go over all the procedure. And before we start doing any kind of extraction, we make sure that the patient is completely numb and they're comfortable during the entire procedure.
Another thing I do with my patients is if at any point during my procedure, if they're feeling any kind of pain, I let them be in control. I let them tell me they are uncomfortable or raise their hand or give me some kind of signal where I stop and let give them more anesthetic so they're nice and comfortable.
I want to know where the anxiety is coming from. A lot of times they have had a bad experience. And sometimes it's when they were kids. So they would have bad experience as a child and stop coming to the dentist. And I really get to know them, why and where, and then try to explain it to them how so much has changed, how we can make it more comfortable for them, and basically let them be in control, tell them during each step what's going on and what we're going to do.

An Extraction May Be Necessary For Many Reasons
Saving a patient’s natural tooth is always our first priority here at Sabal Dental, and we have several ways to do just that. We can use a tooth-colored filling, root canal treatment, and/or a crown to repair a damaged tooth in many cases.
Even though you may not want to think about a tooth extraction, your oral health could depend on it. If your tooth is too badly damaged, then removal may be necessary to keep your other teeth and gums healthy and to avoid more extensive dental work down the road.
Rest assured, if you are in that situation, our experienced team will:
- Take a set of X-rays for a detailed look at your teeth, roots, nerves, and bone
- Explain exactly what we’re going to do
- Take time to answer any questions you have about your tooth extraction
- Make sure the area we’re working on is fully numb before anything is done
- Give you complete aftercare instructions so that your healing period is quick and comfortable
We want you to have a great experience at our dentist office, and we’ll do all we can to make that happen!
We Also Remove Wisdom Teeth
If your wisdom teeth are causing you problems, there’s no need to travel elsewhere to see a specialist. Our team can handle your case right here.
For many people, these “third molars” come through with no problems. For others, however, they can become impacted and put your other teeth at risk for damage. You could also end up in a great deal of pain if your impacted wisdom teeth aren’t removed.
You can trust our team to get your wisdom teeth out without a hitch. Just as we do with all our teeth extractions, we’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable before any work is done. Before you know it, we’ll be through and you’ll be on your way back home.
