Whether you have a wisdom tooth that’s growing in improperly, a serious tooth infection, or require tooth extraction for orthodontic purposes, Dr. O’Grady offers gentle tooth extractions in Denver. With powerful numbing agents and sedation available, we can keep you comfortable throughout the entire process and provide you with the care you need.
The most common reason for tooth removal is problematic wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth grow in improperly, they can become “impacted”, which means that they are unable to erupt from the gum line. This can cause a high risk of a dental abscess as well as other unpleasant symptoms like headaches, inflammation, and more. Extraction is recommended to deal with these symptoms.Teeth may also need to be extracted if they have been seriously damaged by periodontal disease or tooth decay. Saving your natural tooth is always preferred but is not always possible, so the extraction and replacement of the tooth may be the best alternative in some cases. In some cases, teeth may be removed for orthodontic purposes or to prepare for a future dental procedure, such as the placement of full-arch dentures or a dental implant.
At OG Dental, our patients' comfort and safety is our top priority. Dr. O'Grady and his team will do everything to make sure you're completely comfortable. In fact, we offer comfort amenities to the residents in Denver. We have soft blankets, music, video entertainment, and more!
The process of a basic extraction is incredibly simple, and the procedure usually takes only about 5 minutes per tooth. First, Dr. O’Grady will clean and prepare your mouth, and numb the treatment area. Sedation may also be administered if you feel that it will make you more comfortable. Then, your tooth will be loosened in its socket and pulled out with specialized dental tools.
This depends on a number of different factors, such as the number of teeth you’re having extracted, whether any of them require a specialized surgical extraction, your preferences for sedation, and your overall oral health. The best way to find out how much a tooth extraction will cost in Sunnyside, Highland or anywhere else in Denver is to come to OG Dental for an appointment.
