Accidents happen, and teeth are not invincible to damage. Even though the enamel that makes up your teeth is the strongest substance in your body, foods, drinks, and accidents can greatly damage our teeth. At Emerald Hill Dental Care Centre, we provide numerous services to restore your smile, and dental prosthetics are one such way. They are often made of materials that look virtually identical to natural teeth. Our experienced staff can also provide tooth extraction services if your tooth is beyond repair.


We will come up with the best dental extraction technique in Sherwood Park and only suggest tooth extraction when the other options are not possible or viable to save your tooth.

We will help you get a prompt tooth extraction at our clinic in Sherwood Park so that you can continue your daily routine without any problem. To restore damaged or lost teeth in Sherwood Park,

Dentists once removed teeth quite liberally. Nowadays, extractions are only performed if necessary. Emerald Hills Dental Centre offers sinus repair, bone grafting treatments, and wisdom teeth surgery.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting is used to preserve or build up bone levels to replace teeth using implants.

Wisdom teeth

Removing wisdom teeth helps prevent future dental problems. Not everyone gets wisdom teeth, and not everyone needs to have them removed, but wisdom teeth cause problems when they grow at odd angles, affecting your other teeth. Wisdom teeth are also more difficult to clean since they are so far back, so removing them lets you avoid infection. At Emerald Hills Dental Centre, we can provide oral surgery for difficult and impacted wisdom teeth.

The dentist can remove the teeth either surgically or non-surgically. Here is a brief explanation of both of these procedures.

Nonsurgical (Simple) Extractions

  • Usually performed under local anesthesia.

  • Application of anesthesia to numb the area.

  • The dentist lifts the tooth using an elevator.

  • Extraction is carried out with forceps.

  • Staff ensures a slow process to prevent tooth breakage.

Surgical Extractions

  • Involves additional steps for complexity.

  • Nitrous oxide or oral anesthetic is administered for numbness.

  • Surgeon makes an incision to facilitate tooth removal.

  • Typically conducted for unerupted teeth.

At Emerald Hill Dental Care Centre, your well-being is our priority. Recognizing warning signs post-tooth extraction is crucial:  

  • Dry socket management: While dry sockets often heal naturally, consult us to expedite the process and mitigate infection risks.
  • Nerve injury awareness: Lingual and inferior alveolar nerves near the surgical site are vital. Contact us immediately if you suspect a nerve injury for prompt evaluation.
  • Prior dental work damage: If your extraction affects previous dental work, contact our team promptly.
  • Surrounding area damage: Although rare, injury near the sinus cavity or jaw warrants immediate attention as a medical emergency.



Your oral surgery experience with us is tailored to ensure comfort and a smooth recovery:  

  • Consultation process: Begin with a thorough consultation, highlighting any current or potential dental issues and proposed action plans.
  • Anesthetic effects: Expect temporary numbness, possibly difficulty chewing or speaking post-procedure, regardless of the anesthetic used.
  • Recovery time variance: Surgical extractions may necessitate longer healing times.
  • Inflammation management: Receive guidance on managing post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Post-procedure care: Your dentist provides instructions on food restrictions and wound care during recovery.
  • Normal post-surgery effects: Bruising or blood oozing is normal and resolves within days.
  • Stitching information: Your dentist may use stitches, some dissolving independently, while others require a follow-up visit.
  • Post-surgery restrictions: Abstain from smoking within the initial 24 hours and avoid activities that may disrupt blood clots.


At Emerald Hill Dental Care Centre, your tooth extraction journey in Sherwood Park is managed with utmost care and professionalism. Contact us for comprehensive dental services and a supportive post-extraction experience.



At Emerald Hill Dental Care Centre, we try hard to restore the condition of your existing teeth. But under some conditions, tooth extraction might be required. Common reasons for tooth extraction are briefly discussed below:  

  • Infection: Sometimes, due to tooth decay, the bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp, leading to infection. Even the partial eruption of a wisdom tooth increases the chance of infection-causing bacteria. Root canal therapy is often enough to improve your condition, but if the infection is severe, tooth extraction surgery is needed to prevent it from spreading to other areas.
  • Wisdom tooth decay: Your wisdom tooth and its adjacent teeth are hard to clean, so it's prone to decay.
  • Crowding: In many cases, the appearance of a wisdom tooth causes crowding, affecting the placement of your other teeth. In such a case, tooth extraction surgery must be performed to align your teeth properly.
  • Injuries: During an accident, anyone can suffer injuries, and the same can happen to your mouth, damaging one or some of your teeth beyond repair. Our staff will carefully examine the situation and recommend crowns, veneers, or bridges accordingly. If the dental issue is beyond repair, tooth extraction may be required.  


If you are unsure about getting tooth extraction surgery in Sherwood Park, talk to one of our staff members. We will listen to your concerns and solve any doubts that you might have.



Following a tooth extraction surgery, your dentist will send you home to recover; however, to minimize discomfort and reduce the spread of further infection, follow these tips:

  • Take painkillers as prescribed by the dentists.

  • After the procedure, apply an ice bag to the affected area to reduce swelling.

  • Limit your movement for at least 24 hours after the extraction.

  • You should avoid rinsing or spitting for the next 24 hours.

  • Eat soft foods such as pudding or soup.

  • You should continue to brush and floss your teeth, but be sure to avoid the extraction site.


If you are anxious about visiting a dentist, sedation dentistry in Sherwood Park is for you. We understand your anxiety and fear of being close to dental tools. Therefore, we offer sedation dentistry to help you calm down and focus on your oral health.

We offer sedation dentistry in two forms:

At our dental practice, we prioritize your comfort and well-being. To cater to varying needs, we offer sedation dentistry in two distinct forms:

  • Conscious oral sedation: Tailored to individual factors such as age, health, and the nature of the dental procedure, conscious oral sedation ensures a comfortable experience. Our experienced team administers sedatives carefully to establish a relaxed state before commencing any procedure. This form of sedation is versatile and suitable for various dental treatments, from routine cleanings to more complex procedures like root canals and tooth extractions.

  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas): Another option we provide for patient comfort is nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. Like conscious oral sedation, the choice between these options is guided by considerations such as age, health status, and the specifics of the dental procedure. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective way to ease anxiety, fostering a sense of calmness throughout the dental appointment.

Before administering any sedative, our thorough screening process assesses potential drug interactions and medical conditions. While you are under sedation, our vigilant team monitors vital signs, including oxygen levels, blood pressure, and heart rate. Your safety and peace of mind are our priorities, ensuring a relaxed and stress-free dental experience for every patient.

Sedation dentistry helps you in the following ways:

Relieves anxiety

Makes visits go by quickly

Helps with relaxation

Ensures a stress-free appointment

Leaves you with little recollection of the treatment

If you have damaged teeth or have lost teeth altogether, prosthetic teeth are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.


Dentures are prosthetic replacement teeth for those who have lost multiple or all of their teeth. Partial or removable dentures are suitable for those who can’t support a bridge with their existing teeth. A clasp that fits over natural teeth holds the dentures in place. Complete dentures replace the total loss of teeth and are held in your mouth through suction.

Implants are an option for those who have lost one or multiple teeth. Implants are artificial roots made of titanium that are inserted directly into your jawbone. An abutment is attached to the implant, and a prosthetic tooth is attached to the abutment. Implanted teeth look like natural teeth, so you brush and floss them the same way. You can also opt for non-removable implant dentures if you require full dentures.

Benefits of implants include:


Preserve the bone

Prevent further deterioration of facial structures

If you have accidentally knocked out a tooth, visit a dentist for an emergency appointment as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, take note of the following tips:

Don’t touch the tooth’s root; hold it by the white part

Clean it using saliva or cold water, but only for about 10 seconds

Try to put the tooth back into its gum socket and hold it there by biting down on a cloth

If you can’t put it back into the gum socket, store the tooth in saliva or milk
