Dr. Moreno Talks About Tooth Removal and Extraction Read Transcript

Call 563-316-6055 to visit either our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA office and consult with Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto. They’ll determine if a tooth removal or tooth extraction is necessary and can offer recommendations for tooth replacement to help you enjoy a full smile again.

The Benefits Of Having A Tooth Removed Or Extracted

A tooth typically needs to be removed or extracted for three reasons:

  • The tooth has been damaged by decay, disease, or infection and cannot be corrected with restorative dentistry treatment
  • An injury has caused too much harm to the tooth for it to be left in place
  • Wisdom teeth are causing dental issues, including daily discomfort

Leaving a damaged or problematic tooth in your smile only harms your other teeth, your oral health, and possibly even your overall health. If a tooth must be removed, Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will:

  • Ensure your mouth is fully numbed so you feel no pain during your procedure
  • Offer two choices of relaxation dentistry:
    • Free laughing gas, which is inhaled, works quickly, and soothes your nerves
    • An oral conscious option, taken in pill form, which is stronger and places you in a peaceful state of drowsiness just on the brink of sleep

Tooth Removal and Tooth Extraction at Gentle Family Dentists has the most patient-friendly techniques to prevent unnecessary trauma to your teeth or jaw. You’ll then be provided with helpful information to make sure your mouth heals as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Dr. Carol Moreno is a fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and has been president of the said organization several times. She is also a rescipient of Humanitairan Award from AGD.
