Auburn Family Dental performs tooth extractions with minimal discomfort for prompt relief. Your comfort is a priority. We utilize modern pain-control methods to ensure that you experience the least possible amount of pain. We serve patients in Lewiston, Auburn, and throughout all of Androscoggin and Oxford County, Maine.
If you will be having multiple teeth extracted or if you have impacted teeth that require surgical removal, a stronger general anesthetic will be applied to promote a peaceful sleep and ensure that you will not suffer pain anywhere in your body during the extraction procedure. If you have an impacted tooth, the gum and bone tissues that encase the impaction will be carefully cut away to expose the tooth for removal. Forceps will be applied to the tooth and the doctor will gently rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it from the ligaments that are holding it in place within your jawbone. Care is taken to minimize pain following the procedure. In some cases, when a tooth is severely impacted, the tooth will be removed in pieces to avoid unnecessary trauma to the structures of your mouth.
