Extractions

extractions

If you are like most people, the thought of having a tooth pulled is horrifying. Today however, removing a tooth is a painless procedure and sometimes a necessary part of your oral health plan. 

Dr. Odegard wants you to be in optimum oral health. That is why he takes the time to develop a long term oral health plan for each of his patients. Sometimes extracting a tooth my be a part of the your oral health plan. If this is the case, Dr. Odegard will insure that your tooth extraction goes smoothly and painlessly. 

Dr Odegard will offer you Nitrous Oxide, headphones and music, plenty of local anesthetic, and if you wish, you can be sedated with Oral Sedation.  

After your extraction, you should consider having the tooth socket filled in with a bone graft. A bone graft is a particulate granular mineral that is acquired from cows (bovine) and human donor bone from deceased people. The bone is registered with the American Tissue Bank, sterilized and processed so there is almost no chance of disease transmission. The bone mineral is placed into the socket which allows your blood cells to grow bone. The bone graft will prevent collapse of the tooth socket and shrinkage of your jaw that normally occurs after tooth loss. Later you could have a dental implant placed to replace you lost tooth.
