General Dental FAQs
Learn more about our general dental treatments with answers to these commonly asked questions:
Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?
Although not every patient needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, many do. This is because wisdom teeth can easily become impacted. When the wisdom teeth do not have enough room to emerge properly, they may grow at odd angles or damage the back molars. They can also cause overcrowding.
Are dental extractions painful?
No, we make sure that the extraction process is comfortable for our patients. If a patient requires a simple extraction, we use a local anesthetic to numb the treated area. For patients with more complex extractions, we will use localized anesthetic and dental sedation. Patients will not feel any pain during treatment.
What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any sudden or serious oral health problem that you may encounter. Permanent tooth injuries or loss as well as severe tooth pain are some of the most common dental emergencies. We ask that you contact our office after you have received medical care. If you have sustained tooth damage or loss from a physical injury, we can help after you are in good overall health.
