TOOTH EXTRACTION IN SHERWOOD PARK

Accidents happen, and teeth are not invincible. Even though the enamel that makes up your teeth is the strongest substance in your body, foods, drink, and accidents can greatly damage our teeth. However, thanks to modern medical advancements, there are now numerous ways to restore your smile. Dental prosthetics are often made of materials that make them look virtually identical to natural teeth. 
 
If you have damaged an irreplaceable adult tooth, we understand the pain, frustration, and distress this may cause. After all, having your teeth fall out is a common literal nightmare! If you seek options to restore damaged or lost teeth or look for tooth extraction in Sherwood Park, consult with us today. 

EXTRACTION SURGERY

Dentists once removed teeth quite liberally. Nowadays, extractions are only performed if necessary. At Emerald Hills Dental Centre, we offer sinus repair and bone grafting treatments, as well as 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.

Reasons for Tooth Extraction 

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.  

  • Infection: The partial eruption of a wisdom tooth increases the chance of infection-causing bacteria showing up.  
  • Wisdom tooth decay: Your wisdom tooth and its adjacent teeth are hard to clean, which is why it's prone to decay.  
  • Crowding: In many cases, the appearance of a wisdom tooth causes crowding, affecting the placement of your other teeth.  
  • Injuries: Injuries to your mouth can damage one or some of your teeth beyond repair.  

We ensure to provide you with a comfortable and stress-free environment. We listen to your concerns and alleviate any doubts that you might have.  

SEDATION DENTISTRY

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

We offer sedation dentistry in two forms:

Conscious Oral Sedation

Nitrous (Laughing Gas)

Your dentist will recommend a form based on your age, health, as well as the type of procedure being performed. We are experienced in administering sedatives. We make sure that you are in a comfortable state before we start the procedure. Sedation helps relieve anxiety and allows patients to feel more comfortable and calm in the dentist’s chair. The practice can be used for all dental treatments, from routine cleanings to root canals and tooth extractions. 


We screen our patients for possible drug interactions and medical conditions before administering any sedative. While under sedation, we monitor oxygen levels, blood pressure, and heart rate. 

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

RESTORATIVE TREATMENTS

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

DENTURES

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. The dentures are held in place by a clasp that fits over natural teeth. Complete dentures are used to replace the total loss of teeth and are held in your mouth through suction.

IMPLANTS

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 and act much like natural teeth, so you brush and floss them the same way. If you require full dentures, you can also opt for non-removable implant dentures. 
Benefits of implants include:

DENTAL TRAUMA

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

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
