Most of the time, it’s a good idea to keep all your teeth in your mouth. Despite this, sometimes it is better to consider tooth removal. In Harlingen, you can have this procedure:Anxiety Free Experiences Read Transcript
Unfortunately, sometimes teeth just kind of go south on us, and they're to a point where we can't save them. So we sit next to them, let them know our options, whether it's going to be a bridge, whether it's a dental implant, whether it's a partial denture, whether it's a denture.
At a certain point during that consultation, it's imperative that I'm talking to them and I'm asking them, What are their concerns? So what are they thinking, what are they feeling? We need to get on the same page. Nobody wants to hear that they need to lose a tooth, it's a really big deal. That main thing is getting them comfortable, talking to them through that appointment, and understanding that they are not going to feel any pain throughout it. And whatever we decide, whatever we help them to decide, is going to be a great treatment for them.

Get Rid Of Problematic Teeth
Tooth removal is something we take seriously. We want you to understand why you would benefit from having a tooth extracted. In some cases, this is in lieu of restorative dentistry, and in other cases, it will make restorative treatment easier. Digital X-rays and intraoral cameras give us a better sense of the conditions in your mouth, which make it easier to determine when removal may be in your best interest. Taking out a tooth could help if you are experiencing:
- Severe tooth decay
- Abscessed or infected teeth
- Crowded or poorly positioned teeth
- Deeply broken or cracked teeth
- Impacted teeth
- Advanced gum disease
Infection in your tooth could spread to other parts of your mouth. In many cases, a root canal can save the tooth, but not if the tooth can no longer support a crown. Crowded teeth can complicate orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign. Extracting a tooth or a few teeth can make it easier to straighten your smile. If you are already missing several teeth, taking out the few you have left could allow you to get dental implants to support strong, secure replacement teeth.
Stay Comfortable Throughout Your Extraction
Some people experience dental anxiety when they are facing tooth extractions. At our practice, we want you to remain comfortable and relaxed. This starts with the compassion you will receive from our team. We will also:
- Gladly provide a pillow and blankets to help you feel cozy.
- Numb your mouth completely.
- Offer you inhaled sedation (laughing gas). Breathe it in to put your mind and body at ease so you won’t feel a thing.
Be Wise When It Comes To Your Smile
Most people’s third molars will erupt between the ages of 17 and 21. You probably know these teeth better as wisdom teeth. Sometimes these teeth do not have enough space to come in correctly. As a result, they can become impacted. This can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum infections. These teeth also can press into existing teeth. This can change your bite and your smile. It also can be painful.
When you visit us for routine care, we will track any changes with your wisdom teeth. We can identify potential problems, and we can act to prevent you from dealing with harmful consequences.
You can get tooth removal in Harlingen from a dental team who knows you and your situation. Call Sabal Dental at 956-275-7596.
