Infected, damaged teeth can cause pain so severe that eating, drinking, and even sleeping become a challenge. Although we always recommend saving natural teeth, if a tooth is unsalvageable, we advise a tooth extraction in order to save your overall health. Left in place, a sick tooth can compromise the surrounding teeth, bone, and gums and cause lasting pain. With expert training, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon is considered a specialist in tooth extractions.
With expertise developed through years of additional training after dental school, oral surgeons are prepared for any eventuality. We welcome patients with pre-existing conditions and frequently take cases others turn away. We also offer the comprehensive services patients need during a tooth extraction (anesthesia services) as well as after (bone grafting and dental implants). Using state-of-the-art technology, we not only provide a comfortable surgical experience, we’re also able to replace your unsalvageable tooth immediately after extraction with a natural-looking dental implant. In just one day we can remove the cause of your pain and provide a new source of confidence. If you’re looking for a trusted doctor for your tooth extraction in Excelsior & Minnetonka, MN, see one that can provide the complete care you need for a functional, lasting, and healthy smile.
Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at Facial Designs P.A. in Excelsior & Minnetonka, MN. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!
