At Capehart Dental, your oral health is our priority. While Dr. Capehart will always try to save your dental structure, sometimes the most expedient and healthy option is to do an extraction. Sometimes, wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, become impacted. This means they don’t have room to grow, and can cause dental issues and pain. If the severity of the damage cannot be fixed with a filling, crown, or other treatment, then it may be necessary to completely remove the problem teeth.
Dr. Capehart may recommend extractions if:
Most extractions are done with using a local anesthetic. For patients who need extra relaxation during the procedure, Dr. Capehart offers anti-anxiety medication. When the procedure is complete, you’ll feel little discomfort and healing begins almost immediately.
