You may need a Tooth Extraction:

  • to remove teeth that are severely decayed that cannot be saved by root canal therapy.
  • to remove teeth if you are a patient with advanced periodontal disease.
  • to remove teeth which are broken beyond repair.
  • to remove impacted wisdom teeth.
  • to remove teeth which are causing crowding.
  • for teeth that may be preventing other teeth from erupting.
  • to correct malocclusion (“bad bite”) or teeth that are not aligned properly.
  • in preparation for orthodontic treatment (braces).

Pulling A Tooth

To determine whether a tooth extraction is necessary, your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth and take an X-ray of the problem tooth. Although most extractions can be done by your dentist at Silverdale Dental Center, some difficult extractions must be performed by an oral surgeon.

Once it has been determined that you need a tooth extraction, your dentist will anesthetize (numb) the tooth that will be extracted, and the jawbone and gums that surround it. During the extraction, you should not feel pain, but you can expect to feel some pressure.

After the extraction, a small amount of bleeding is normal. Avoid smoking and drinking through a straw for 24 hours. Your dentist may prescribe pain medication and will advise you on how to best take care of your mouth after a tooth extraction.

COVID-19 Status Message

As of May 19th we are open for full-service, non-urgent dental treatment.

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
