Are you 55 years of age or older and in need of a tooth extraction? If so, look no further than Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. We are experts in performing tooth extractions on patients of all ages, including senior citizens.
There are a number of reasons you may need a tooth extraction. If your tooth is severely damaged, broken or damaged beyond repair, is poorly positioned or impacted, or you have advanced periodontal disease, a tooth extraction may be highly recommended.
Before we extract a tooth, you can expect us to numb the area with a local anesthetic. If you are in need of multiple tooth extractions or if your tooth is impacted, we may use dental sedation so that you can sleep during the procedure. Regardless of what we decide to do, you won’t be able to feel any pressure or pain.
Once the tooth extraction has been completed, we’ll pack gauze into the socket and ask you to bite down gently to stop the bleeding. Self dissolving stitches may then be added to close the wound. You’ll be provided with aftercare instructions and can call us at any time if you have any questions or concerns. We’ll do whatever we can to ensure a safe tooth extraction that leads to minimal pain and discomfort.
