Shreveport Tooth Extractions
If you are in need of a tooth extraction in Shreveport, LA, Southern Roots Dentistry is the place to go. We provide a safe and comfortable space for those in need of extractions. Our dentists, Drs. Gilley, Lowder, and Moore have extensive experience in providing compassionate care while ensuring that our patient’s comfort is prioritized.
While we will do all we can to avoid removing any teeth, sometimes a tooth has decayed or been damaged beyond repair. In these cases, a tooth extraction may be needed. During a tooth extraction, our dentists will apply a local anesthetic to numb the gums and keep you comfortable throughout the process. They will then loosen the tooth at the root as much as possible before pulling out the tooth. Our dentists will check in frequently to ensure your experience is as comfortable and safe as possible.
At Southern Roots Dentistry, we understand that every patient has different needs when it comes to treatments like extractions. We also offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, for patients who experience dental anxiety. Please ask your dentist if you are a candidate for nitrous oxide.
Common Reasons For Tooth Extractions
As we mentioned, our dentists will do their best to save the tooth, but there are cases where it is healthier for the tooth to be removed; this includes:
- Severe tooth decay or infection
- Uncontrollable gum disease
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Extra teeth
- Crowding in the mouth
- Braces and orthodontic treatment
Each case is different, and it’s important to speak with your dentist before looking into tooth extractions.
