Dental Extractions

Gate City, VA | Big Stone Gap, VA

Teeth extractions in Gate City, VA and Big Stone Gap, VA are a great way to remove problem teeth. If you need teeth removed, whether they are broken, damaged, or decayed beyond repair, you’ve come to the right place. Templeton Dentistry in Gate City and Big Stone Gap uses the latest teeth extraction techniques to remove problem teeth from patients as safely and comfortably as possible. We also extract wisdom teeth that are causing discomfort or pain.

Teeth Extraction Procedure

The first step in the tooth extraction procedure is the administration of a local anesthetic. This will effectively numb the area where the tooth will be removed. In certain cases, a general anesthetic may be used instead—often this is the case with wisdom teeth as several teeth are being removed at the same time.

To remove the unwanted tooth, the teeth extraction experts at Templeton Dentistry in Gate City, VA and Big Stone Gap, VA will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and remove any bone that is covering the tooth. After that, the tissue that connects the tooth or teeth to the bone will be separated, and then the tooth will be removed. Sometimes the size of the tooth can make extraction difficult. If this is the case, it may be broken into smaller pieces for easier extraction. In certain cases, patients may also require stitches once the tooth is removed.

What to Expect After Tooth Extraction

In most cases, the recovery period for teeth extraction treatments in at Templeton Dentistry in Gate City, VA and Big Stone Gap, VA lasts only a few days. Dr. Campbell will prescribe painkillers if necessary and a list of aftercare instructions will be provided in order to help speed up recovery.

If you live in the Gate City, VA or Big Stone Gap, VA area and have teeth—wisdom or otherwise—that are in severe pain because of a broken or abscessed tooth, consider the teeth extraction procedure at Templeton Dentistry.
