Extractions in Rifle, CO

Does your mouth hurt all the time? Is the pain centralized to a single tooth, or does it seem to be coming from beneath the gums? Do you have a hard lump where a tooth should be sprouting but is not? Are your teeth too cramped, causing some of them to protrude or become crooked?

In these scenarios, one of the most common and beneficial treatments is a dental extraction.

Although most teenagers and adults pale at the idea of needing to have a tooth removed, extractions can reduce pain, realign the smile, and keep your mouth healthy. Most are done to combat overcrowding, but some are also done to combat disease and decay. Whatever your situation may be, we at Rifle Dental Care want to help.

We are a team of dedicated professionals who offer preventive and restorative treatments like dental extractions to the residents of Rifle, CO. We use only modern technology and techniques and spend just as much time focused on your recovery as we do on the treatment itself.

The Process of Extraction

Extracting a tooth is a simple procedure. When you visit our office, we will first walk you through the treatment and answer any questions you might have. We then make sure you are comfortable and ready for the process.

Our first step is to use a local anesthetic to numb your mouth. This helps you not feel any pain. Our dentist then gently removes your tooth. You may feel some pressure at this point, but it won’t hurt. If you have an impacted tooth, the extraction will take longer.

Who Needs an Extraction?

The most common reasons to need an extraction, though, are:

  • Decay
  • Physical damage (such as a tooth cracking in half)
  • Overcrowding
  • Impaction

If you are worried that you need care, please call us at Rifle Dental Care in Rifle, CO. We will set up a consultation and examine your tooth to see if other treatments are possible.
