Extractions in Minneapolis & Minnetonka, MN
Our dentists near you at Holger Dental Group offer a variety of services to ensure all of your oral health needs are met. Some of the most common treatments are x-rays, root canals, clear aligners, and extractions near you.
Teeth may need to be extracted for a number of reasons. Many patients opt to remove wisdom teeth prior to them growing in to prevent further issues. When wisdom teeth fully grow in, they can take up too much space, leading to crowding and moving of the surrounding teeth.
Our dentists in Minneapolis & Minnetonka, MN suggest that patients with periodontal disease consider removal as well. Having our team of experts at Holger Dental Group remove damaged or decayed teeth is a great way to protect the rest of your mouth from bacteria and future issues.
What Happens During the Tooth Extraction Process?
If you’re unsure of whether or not you need a tooth extraction, that’s what we’re here for. Getting an extraction can relieve pain, improve your ability to sleep, make it easy to eat, chew, and speak again.
The first thing we’ll schedule is a consultation where our dentist will assess your current oral health. This allows them to determine if a tooth extraction is the best treatment option for you or if another one of the services that we offer would be a better fit.
When the procedure starts, we’ll numb the area around your jawbone, tooth, and gums with a local anesthetic. Getting a tooth extracted is a pain-free experience. Please bring someone with you to drive you home from your appointment.
Once the anesthetic has kicked in, we’ll use a slight amount of pressure to rock the tooth out of the socket. Not all teeth come out easily, and sometimes we’ll use suction to get the tooth out. If you need the suction, we’ll use dissolvable stitches to allow the socket to heal naturally.
