Tooth Extractions
in Dripping Springs

We all hope that we’ll never have to have a tooth extracted, but there are many reasons why it can become necessary. Wisdom teeth extractions are the most common extraction done for teens and some adults, but there are other reasons why teeth extractions may become necessary in adulthood.

Tooth Extraction in Dripping Springs

If you are experiencing extensive tooth decay, tooth infection or crowding, you could need a tooth extraction. Other common reasons include the removal of teeth in preparation of corrective orthodontic treatments and the removal of weak teeth from chemotherapy.

Our dental professionals perform this procedure using one or more of our sedation dentistry options including laughing gas, oral sedation or local anesthesia. Your tooth extraction will most likely require digital X-rays to map out the most effective way to pull the tooth.

The process of pulling the tooth is actually fairly quick and painless. After your sedation takes effect, our dental professionals will pull the tooth in a matter of seconds. The most important aspect of a tooth extraction is in the recovery. We will have you bite down on a gauze pad for 20 to 30 minutes to let the blood clot form. In the days or weeks to follow, you should avoid hot and chewy foods, and rinse your mouth with warm salt water to keep the wound clean.

At TORC Dental, we also offer wisdom teeth extractions. The wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt. These teeth commonly cause issues like crowding or damage to other teeth. We can remove the wisdom teeth before they become an issue. Make sure to ask about our sedation dentistry options for this procedure.

Great service from the moment I enquired about getting my wisdom teeth removed. The receptionist answered all my questions professionally and was always so friendly. The Doctor explained everything I needed to know before and after the surgery. I definitely recommend them to anyone!
