Tooth Extractions in Peoria, AZ
Despite your best efforts, teeth sometimes need to be removed to protect your health. When we’ve discussed all other possibilities, and you’ve decided on getting a tooth extraction in Peoria, AZ, we’ll take every step to help you. Your wellbeing always takes priority in any treatment decision. Some patients prefer sedation to help with oral surgery, and we can review these options in your treatment plan. You can trust our Peoria, AZ family dentistry team takes every measure to make sure even minor surgical procedures are as comfortable as possible.
Some teeth are removed more easily than others, but each Peoria, AZ oral surgeon on our team takes pride in helping every patient get numb with modern anesthetics to start every procedure. Once anesthesia settles in, Dr. Natalia Hariri, Dr. George Hariri, and Dr. Tara Foughani use specialized instruments to elevate the tooth out of place. You will receive specific post-op instructions to help you care for the area after your procedure, with prescriptions for any medications needed during the healing period.
While our immediate concern is the short-term management of your care, we will also discuss your long-term plans for replacing the missing tooth. Leaving a space is always an option, but spaces in your smile can create appearance and function challenges that are important to consider. Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces, and minimizing the effects of an unbalanced bite can prevent issues later in life.
Although our primary goal is to help your teeth stay healthy and functional, a tooth extraction is sometimes the best way to preserve the overall health of your mouth. Since teeth help nourish our bodies and support our confidence, our Peoria, AZ family dentistry team will help you find a game plan that fits your short and long-term goals.
