Tooth Extractions Made Easy

At Foxhall Dental Center, we understand that the thought of a tooth extraction can bring about anxiety. However, our approach is designed to ensure the process is straightforward, safe, and as comfortable as possible, focusing on preserving your oral health and alleviating any discomfort caused by problematic teeth.

When Tooth Extractions Become Necessary

Extractions are often performed when there is no other way to save a tooth. Some teeth are simply an issue to your oral health, so it's best to remove them before they're allowed to cause issues with shifting, infection and intra-oral damage. Some of the reasons you may want or need an extraction include:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Loose or severely decayed teeth
  • Teeth that are cracked or broken below the gum line
  • Stubborn baby teeth
  • You're looking to avoid having additional treatment done

Our Approach to Extractions

Dr. Charles White and our team prioritize your comfort and safety during the extraction process. Understanding that each patient's needs are unique, we begin with a comprehensive examination, including x-rays, to determine the necessity of an extraction.

For most extractions, we use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, ensuring a pain-free experience. We focus on gentle, yet precise techniques to remove the tooth efficiently, minimizing any discomfort and promoting a quick recovery.

  • Local Anesthesia: Ensures the extraction site is completely numb.
  • Gentle Extraction Techniques: Aimed at reducing recovery time.
  • Post-Procedure Care: Immediate aftercare instructions are provided to ensure proper healing.

What You Can Expect

Our team at Foxhall Dental Center is committed to providing clear communication throughout your treatment process. After the extraction, we'll give you detailed care instructions to follow at home, helping to minimize discomfort and promote healing. For most patients, over-the-counter pain relief and a few days of rest are all that's needed for a smooth recovery.

It's important to note that while we strive to handle most extractions in-house, Dr. White will refer patients to a trusted oral surgeon for more complex cases requiring sedation or specialized care.
