Sometimes the tooth cannot be repaired with general dentistry treatments. If your child has a baby tooth which hasn’t fallen, and its already time for the new teeth to come, tooth extraction can be helpful. Oral surgery can also be an option when there is a problematic wisdom tooth growth, or extraction is necessary to create space for braces. At Lakeshore Family Dental, we can assist you with teeth extractions or oral surgery in Sarnia and surrounding areas. For more information, please call us.
Although our dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some situations when a tooth may need to be extracted such as but not limited to:
Advanced gum disease
Infection or abscess
Fractured teeth or roots
Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
In most instances, your oral surgery can be performed right in our office in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. After careful examination and radiographs, a patient may be referred to a specialist depending on the degree of difficulty or specific health issues the patient may have.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Laughing Gas)
When a patient is nervous or has anxiety issues, dental sedation is suggested for undergoing dental treatments. This makes the treatment as painless and comfortable as possible. If you are someone who avoids getting to a dentist, we will make your visit here pleasant with our various sedation techniques.
