Tooth Extraction in Billings, MT
Tooth Extraction Services
Also known as simple extractions, general extractions are ideal for teeth with large fractures or severe decay. Because these teeth are above the gum line, Dr. Thomas can easily extract the damaged tooth to prevent problems from spreading to adjacent teeth. He’ll administer a local anesthetic beforehand to ensure you don’t feel any pain during the process. After our dentist stitches up your gums and applies gauze, patients need to rest for around 48 to 72 hours to ensure proper healing.
Surgical extractions are for impacted teeth that haven’t breached the gum line. As a result, extraction is a bit more complex. After numbing the area with a local anesthetic, Dr. Thomas will gently make an incision into your gums to access and remove the tooth. He’ll then apply stitches and gauze to begin the healing process. Patients need at least 72 hours of rest and recovery after surgical tooth removal.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that usually erupt in a patient's late teens to early twenties. These teeth become impacted if there’s insufficient room for them to grow. When wisdom teeth grow sideways or fail to emerge, they can cause painful complications.
Our dentist in Billings can remove these with a surgical extraction. Wisdom tooth removal is similar to surgical tooth removal and involves the same procedure and healing times.
