Tooth Extractions in Cary, NC

At Millpond Family Dental we perform a wide variety of tooth extraction procedures. From helping remove stubborn baby teeth to make room for their permanent replacements, to complex wisdom tooth removal, and everything in between. Our team has completed advanced training in gentle and conservative tooth removal procedures and has the skills to make your procedure as quick and straightforward as possible.

To remove a tooth, we will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. This will reduce any pain and allow you to remain comfortable throughout the procedure. If needed, you can also be given an oral sedative to promote further relaxation. We are also fully equipped with nitrous oxide sedation, or laughing gas, for patients who desire this during a procedure. For some circumstances we are even able to have a specialist come into the office to provide sedation services.

When Should You Have a Tooth Extracted?


When should a tooth be removed?

Often, if a tooth has severely decayed or is infected, we may recommend removing it. Then, that tooth can be replaced with a restoration like a bridge or a dental implant. Removing infected teeth is important because the infection can spread to other parts of the body, including the heart and brain. Teeth can also commonly crack or split necessitating removal.

Should I be sedated for extractions?

At Millpond Family Dental we have the proper training and equipment to make most extractions fast and straightforward. In these situations, simply numbing the tooth and affected area is sufficient to make for a painless and easy procedure. However, for some situations we may recommend the use of laughing gas or conscious sedation, both of which can be provided in office.

Do Wisdom teeth need to be extracted?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt from your gums and some people don’t have enough room in their mouths to accommodate these extra molars. As a result, wisdom teeth can become impacted, which means they are stuck in the gums or jawbone. This is a case-by-case basis and many people have adequate space where they have no need to remove their wisdom teeth. We are equipped with all of the proper radiographic equipment to fully analyze your case and give you the information to help you make the best decision.
