Comfortable Tooth Extraction
The thought of a tooth extraction can seem like a scary experience. However, our Lincoln dentists work hard in creating a comfortable experience for all of our patients. At our North Dental Clinic, we have Zen Rooms to help ensure patients have the most comfortable experience during any dental procedure.
Our Lincoln family dentists will recommend a tooth extraction in situations where too much damage has been done, and the patient is experiencing a severe toothache or even a tooth abscess. Additionally, individual tooth conditions such as severe tooth decay, a failed root canal, or a cracked tooth, can also require a tooth extraction. In some cases, our Lincoln dentist may refer the patient to an oral surgeon.
If you’re concerned about having your teeth pulled, visit out Lincoln Dental clinic. We promise to take great care of you. No need to be embarrassed, afraid, or ashamed. Our team is full of knowledgeable dental professionals who often work with anxious and scared patients. Here at Northstar Dental, we work hard to make each dental experience a comfortable one.
Understanding Your Symptoms
If you have an intense toothache, you may need your tooth removed. Short, shooting discomfort, extreme tooth sensitivity, abscesses, and severely broken teeth are all warning signs of more severe problems indicating that you should contact our Lincoln emergency dentist.
Our Tooth Extraction Process
Our goal for every patient is to have them experience a comfortable tooth extraction. To determine if we can do a tooth extraction at our office, we will examine your tooth and the affected area. We will also review your medical history. Based on our findings, we can decide to remove your tooth at our office, or to refer you to an oral surgeon. At our offices, we can offer oral sedation for patients with dental anxiety.
We’re also partners with Nebraska Oral and Facial Surgery (NOFS), located here in Lincoln, NE. If a patient wants IV sedation, or needs an oral surgeon for any reason, Dr. David Rallis at NOFS is excellent and will take great care of you.
