Tooth Extractions in Spokane Valley, WA
A Simple Tooth Extraction May Be The Best Remedy
No one wants to lose a tooth, but in some cases injury or decay may make it unavoidable. Dr. Conway will make every effort to save your tooth but if it is not feasible a simple extraction may be the reasonable alternative. Rest assured that the doctor and his associates will make you as comfortable as possible throughout and following the procedure.
Dr. Conway will explain every step along the way so that you will know exactly what to expect and won’t be surprised by any of the sounds you may hear or the sensations that you may experience. A local anesthetic is administered so there will be no pain involved, but you might feel some pressure. The doctor will encourage you to let him know immediately if you feel anything unusual.
We also offer nitrous oxide sedation for our patients who suffer higher levels of anxiety. This is a low dosage relaxant that will wear off promptly after the treatment.
Once your tooth has been extracted you will be given a list of specific home care instructions to make you more comfortable while you recover from the procedure. There will be certain restrictions concerning diet, and other do’s and don’ts to prevent any complications from arising.
Spokane Valley Dentistry appreciates that patients are going to feel somewhat anxious at the idea of having a tooth extracted. Our focus here is on putting you at ease so that the procedure is over and done with before you know it!
