Tooth Extraction - Abilene, TX

Tooth Pain No More

Resolving Toothaches with Extraction

If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, you can experience anything from a chronic toothache to sharp pain when you eat. No matter which type of discomfort you’re experiencing, seeing our experienced team at Leedy Dental should be your top priority! Your tooth is telling you that infection, decay, or damage has become severe enough to reach the nerves inside your tooth. We’ll always first try to save your tooth, with treatments like root canals. However, if your tooth is unsolvable, we provide comfortable tooth extractions in Abilene, TX to resolve your tooth pain and ultimately restore your health.

Tooth Extractions Made Comfortable

Believe it or not, we try to make tooth extractions at our office comfortable and relaxing experiences! A common procedure, tooth extractions from our experienced dentists are efficient and virtually painless, with our use of advanced extraction techniques. Rest assured, you’ll be completely comfortable and relaxed during your appointment. You can opt for sedation, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation, to help calm your nerves. In many cases, tooth extractions are simple procedures that won’t take much time to complete. If you need wisdom teeth extraction, this process is sometimes more complex, but we’re trained in these surgical extractions, too. Our incredibly skilled dentists complete wisdom teeth extraction and problem tooth removal right in our modern practice, where we’ll help you feel completely comfortable and safe.

Extraction: A Step Toward a Healthy Smile

Teeth extractions due to impacted wisdom teeth or in conjunction with orthodontics don’t need replacement. However, if decay or infection has resulted in tooth extraction, you can choose to have your tooth replaced with a more permanent solution than a bridge or partial denture. Our implant dentist, Dr. Robert Leedy, and our prosthodontists all have specialized training and experience in dental implants, the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. Dental implants replace all parts of your natural tooth, from the root to the crown, making them the option that restores the more function and oral health. And because of our state-of-the-art guided implant surgery technology, we generally extract a tooth and place a dental implant, all in the same appointment! Learn how dental implants are the most ideal replacement for extracted teeth by scheduling your appointment today.
