Put Your Oral Health First With A Tooth Removal

It isn’t a very pleasant procedure to consider, but at Gentle Family Dentists, having a tooth removed can be a stress-free experience that benefits your smile. Dr. Carol Moreno and her son, Dr. Roberto Moreno, make your comfort their top priority during any treatment. They also will do everything they can to save your natural tooth but will make your oral surgery quick and easy if you need a tooth removed.

Call 563-316-6055 to visit either our West Liberty, IA dentist office or Muscatine, IA dentist office and consult with Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto. They’ll determine if a 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 nitrous oxide, or “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

Your tooth or teeth will be removed using 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.

Providing Extra Comfort During Your Treatment

Our caring doctors and staff will not only help your smile with excellent dental care but will also ensure your experience with us is pleasant from beginning to end. You can always ask us for anything you need to feel more relaxed during your procedure, including neck pillows, warm blankets, headphones, and more. We also have ceiling TVs in each operatory to keep you entertained while we gently help your smile.

Call 563-316-6055 to schedule your appointment at our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA dentist office if you’re feeling dental discomfort or think a tooth is becoming an issue. We can also be contacted through our online form. If your situation is an emergency, we can even see you the same day.
