Dental Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal in Oklahoma City

Having a tooth extraction isn’t exactly something that anyone ever really wants to resort to. However, having a tooth pulled can sometimes be necessary if a tooth infection has gone too deep, or if other remedial treatments have not been able to successfully stop the need for tooth extraction.

Benefits of Tooth Extraction with Oklahoma City Dentist

If your toothache has become bad enough that you need a tooth pulled, it can in fact be beneficial. Some of the benefits of having a tooth extraction for a severe toothache or other dental issue include:

  • Putting a stop to your toothache – Having a constant toothache can be both distracting and discomforting, not to mention potentially dangerous for your overall oral health. Having the tooth pulled can put a stop to your toothache and get you back on track.
  • Removal of infection-causing bacteria – By removing the host for the infection with a professional dental extraction, our team can help get your teeth to a better place. Keeping an infected tooth that should be extracted can result in infection spreading further in your mouth, and into other teeth too.
  • Restorative Dentistry options – After your tooth has been removed, you don’t have to worry about having a gap in your smile – restorative dentistry can help you keep the beautiful smile you desire!

If you require a tooth pulled, our Oklahoma City team has the experience, equipment, and know-how to make sure that your tooth extraction goes safely, comfortably, and effectively. We are proud to provide top-quality care to all of our patients, and especially those with tooth extraction needs. We work hard so that each and every person who visits us from the Moore and Norman, OK, area to have a tooth pulled is satisfied with their results and can move forward with working towards maintaining good oral health.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

This can cause pain and discomfort and could lead to a tooth infection or other dental problems. Your dentist may recommend wisdom tooth extraction even before your teeth are impacted, though, just to avoid potential dental issues down the road. We are proud to be able to offer wisdom teeth extraction procedures right here at OKC Smiles with the team you already know and trust.

Dr. Mark Phan performs wisdom tooth removal services at our practice located in southern Oklahoma City – right near Norman and Moore, OK. He can remove wisdom teeth that have already erupted, if needed, as well as impacted wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth extraction process is relatively simple and can be performed in just one visit. During the procedure, local anesthesia will be applied to minimize any pain or discomfort during the process. For patients who are nervous about their procedure or who experience dental anxiety, we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry options as well.
