Although our dentist, Dr. Natalya Ramsay, and the team at Evans Street Dental Center want to help you keep all of your teeth, there may be some instances where a tooth may need to be extracted. You may need a tooth extraction in McMinnville Oregon for the following reasons:
- Preparation for orthodontics or for cosmetic reasons
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Advanced decay
In most cases, the extraction of the tooth is the last resort in maintaining dental health. In order to keep your teeth healthy and functional, it is important that you keep a proper oral hygiene routine within the home and consistently attend scheduled dental appointments.
At the start of your visit to Evans Street Dental Center, Dr. Natalya Ramsay will administer a local anesthetic over the specific area where the tooth will be extracted. This will prevent you from feeling any pain during the procedure. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the doctor will extract the tooth and provide gauze to help you heal. The doctor and staff will provide you with specific instruction on how to receive the best possible result when healing. The doctor will also tell you that soreness and pain will be expected for the first few days after extraction. This is normal, and the sore feeling will subside.
