We Provide Gentle Dental Extractions

The decision to perform an extraction is typically straightforward when a tooth is impacted by significant decay, severe periodontal disease, or a fracture. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth nearly always need to be extracted. Digital X-rays analyze the underlying structures and determine if the tooth can be saved. If there is a pulp infection without a tooth fracture, root canal therapy is a highly successful method for preventing extraction. Extraction of normal teeth may be required for orthodontics, full mouth dental implants, or when a primary tooth hasn’t fallen out and is stopping a permanent tooth from erupting.

At Argyle Advanced Dental Care, we always aim to save natural teeth; however, extraction may be necessary if conservative treatment is ineffective. Extracting a damaged or abscessed tooth can prevent more serious issues from impacting other teeth, your oral health, and your physical health. Regardless of the reason, Dr. Hao Chi Hua has extensive expertise in performing gentle tooth extraction in Argyle, TX. With a local anesthetic and sedation, if you need it, tooth extraction will alleviate acute or chronic tooth pain and restore your oral health.


Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal

Due to the position at the back of the mouth, lack of space, or an obstruction, wisdom teeth (third molars) frequently become partially or completely impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are hard to clean and prone to bacteria buildup. This can lead to decay, pain, swelling, gum disease, and cysts that can harm adjacent teeth and bone. Dr. Hao Chi Hua offers wisdom tooth extraction under local anesthesia and sedation in Argyle, TX. However, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon may refer to more complex cases.

Our Tooth Extraction Process

During your initial consultation at Argyle Advanced Dental Care, we’ll determine if a tooth extraction is needed based on your oral exam, symptoms, and diagnostic imaging. We accept insurance from several leading insurance providers and offer to make paying for extraction as painless as possible. If we decide tooth extraction is best, you’ll schedule this appointment before leaving our office. For uncomplicated tooth extractions, numbing the site with a local anesthetic is usually sufficient, although we also offer several types of sedation. Most patients report feeling slight pressure during the procedure because we use an elevator tool to loosen the tooth, followed by forceps to grasp it, rock back and forth in the socket, and remove it. Rest assured, Dr. Hao Chi Hua gently removes your tooth, careful not to harm adjacent teeth, underlying bone, and surrounding gum tissue. Because our dental team routinely performs tooth extractions, your procedure will be efficient and over before you know it!

Upgrade Your Missing Smile After Tooth Extraction

We recommend tooth replacement after extraction to prevent adjacent teeth from shifting and to restore smile function and beauty. Although bridges restore function and prevent remaining teeth from shifting and altering your bite, bone loss in the empty socket continues unchecked. Made from durable, strong, and natural-looking materials, dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement solution that prevents bone loss and encourages new bone growth. Bone loss can occur as early as six weeks after extraction, so we suggest scheduling a follow-up visit once your gums have properly healed to discuss your options.
