Stay Comfortable During Your Extraction With Sedation

If you have a tooth that’s giving you problems, we can help. Starr General Dentistry has many restorative dentistry options to repair a damaged tooth. If repair is not an option, we can remove your tooth quickly and efficiently.

Our practice has been performing tooth removals, including wisdom teeth, for over 45 years, so we know how to keep you comfortable. We’ll make sure that the area around the affected tooth is fully numb before we begin your procedure. We don’t want you feeling any discomfort at all. We also offer two sedation options if you need extra help relieving your dental anxiety:

  • Inhaled Sedation – We’ll administer a sweet-smelling gas that will immediately calm your anxious nerves and give you an all-over feeling of relaxation. This form of sedation is even safe for children.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation – Your dentist will prescribe a small pill that you’ll take before your extraction. By the time we’re ready to remove your tooth, your mind and body will be totally relaxed and free of stress.

Don’t suffer in pain any longer than necessary! Call Starr General Dentistry today for tooth removal in Waco. You can also schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Tooth Removal

Are tooth extractions common?

It would be fair to say this is a common dental procedure. Using even the most conservative estimates, tens of millions of teeth are removed from mouths every year in the United States. The many reasons for removing teeth also mean many people can benefit from having a tooth or multiple teeth taken out.

Are tooth extractions painful?

At one time, the answer might have been yes, but today we use modern techniques to make this as pain-free as possible. At Starr General Dentistry, we offer local anesthetic along with both oral and inhaled sedation. This can prevent you from feeling any pain when your tooth is extracted. You may have some temporary soreness as you recover, but we will advise you on how to manage that.

Why are tooth extractions needed?

Patients get teeth removed for a number of reasons. Severe decay, cracks, and breaks can leave teeth too weak to support a crown or to receive a root canal. For someone with crowded teeth, removing a few could make orthodontic care simpler and more effective. We also remove wisdom teeth that are impacted. Taking out teeth also can make room for dentures or implant-supported dentures.
