Tooth extractions are a common procedure preformed at an oral surgery office. It may be necessary in order to preserve the health of other teeth and oral structures. At LoneStar OMS, our oral surgeons are trained to extract teeth efficiently and safely, eliminating situations that may compromise your oral health.
If you have one or more teeth that need to be removed, one of our doctors will outline your treatment plan during a consultation appointment.
After visiting your dentist for an oral exam, you will know whether or not you will require a tooth extraction. Your dentist can remove teeth but will often refer you to an Oral Surgeon, as they are considered the experts at tooth extractions and can offer sedation options, if needed. When visiting LoneStar OMS, one of our oral surgeons will perform an oral exam and take additional x-rays (if necessary) to properly diagnose your oral health concerns.
A tooth extraction could take up to an hour (depending on the number of teeth), and is an in-office procedure. Patients have the option of nitrous oxide, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia in addition to local anesthetic, to provide optimum comfort during your procedure. Anesthesia options will be discussed with you during your consultation, along with your post-surgery care instructions. You should be back to your normal routine within a few days.
