Rely on Sedation for a Comfortable Extraction

Over the years, Dr. Studerus has removed countless teeth for his patients. While he will always try to save a tooth when possible, he knows when it’s best to remove it instead to preserve your oral health. To make your tooth extraction as comfortable as possible, we offer three levels of soothing sedation. We’ll discuss these options with you so you can decide which one suits your needs best:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Pleasant laughing gas will put you in a completely relaxed state.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – You’ll take a small pill ahead of time to help you feel at ease.
  • IV Sedation – Lie back in a sleeplike state and remember nothing about your procedure.

Replace Your Missing Tooth for Best Results

Once your tooth has been removed, we recommend replacing it ASAP to avoid other problems. When you have a missing tooth, your other teeth can begin to shift and cause problems with the alignment of your bite.

You have great replacement options like a bridge or dental implant-crown combination for your new tooth. A bridge will anchor to your other teeth with a replacement tooth in the middle. Or we can place an implant where the tooth was, then top it with a crown. With the implant option, your nearby teeth will be unaffected. Plus, an implant will keep you from suffering bone loss in your jaw.
