Are you or someone you love in need of a dental extraction? Whether you are dealing with bone loss, severe periodontal disease, advanced tooth decay, or have chipped or broken your tooth in a way that it cannot be repaired, we can help extract your tooth and provide a variety of options to replace your tooth and repair the function of your mouth.
When you are missing a single tooth, this can cause issues when eating, talking, and may even lead to the surrounding teeth shifting which can cause further issues with your jaw and oral health.
To help our patients avoid these potential issues, Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh provides tooth extraction services in Calgary. He also can recommend options to replace the missing tooth with alternatives such as a dental implant. At Inglewood Family Dental, we understand that sometimes a dental extraction is required without much notice. This is why we also offer emergency dental extraction services for those that may have lost their tooth in an injury or are in severe pain.
We also understand that finances are an important factor when considering a dental extraction. We are proud to follow the 2020 Alberta Dental Fee Guide to help make dental care affordable to our patients on a budget. We also have several flexible financing options to ensure our patients can get the dental care they need, without putting it off due to worrying about the cost.
In order to determine whether you are in need of a dental extraction, we would first take an x-ray of your tooth. If we can save the tooth, that would be the ideal solution, but if a dental extraction is necessary, this will assist us in our diagnosis and treatment plan.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, we offer several sedation options to put you at ease during the dental extraction procedure. However, if it is a simple dental extraction, most patients only require a local anesthetic which numbs the area surrounding the tooth, so they feel only pressure, no pain.
When undergoing a tooth extraction, it is recommended to rest and relax for 24 hours after your procedure. You should also avoid using a straw, smoking, or rinsing for 24 hours after your procedure to minimize the possibility of dry-sockets. We may prescribe medications including over-the-counter pain killers to help with any post-operative pain you may experience.
If you are experiencing pain for several days after the dental extraction, or if you are showing signs of infection, please make sure you contact our office as soon as possible.
Believe it or not, a dental extraction is a surprisingly common procedure that we perform at our office on a regular basis. If you or someone you love is in need of a tooth extraction, contact Inglewood Family Dental for a consultation and let us help put a smile on your face. We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
