At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, Justin Mund, DDS, our very own Smile Ninja is here to help you through dental extractions in Fort Worth, TX. He provides easy and comfortable extractions to patients who need this service.
Most of us don’t like to think about having a tooth pulled, but there are some cases when this is the best choice for the health of surrounding teeth and your overall wellness. Other times, dental extractions help with overcrowding or if you have wisdom teeth pushing on other teeth or not coming through your gums properly.
During your extraction or extractions, you will be thoroughly numb. We also offer nitrous oxide, which provides a dreamy and relaxing sensation to patients undergoing invasive procedures or those who have dental anxiety.
At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, our patients are often surprised by how quick and easy an extraction can be under the gentle hands of the right dentist. Smile Ninja ease is our goal when pulling a tooth.
Tooth Extractions for Your Best Health
A dental extraction in our Fort Worth, TX dental office begins with an exam. If Dr. Mund sees that a tooth is beyond repair or may harm your health because of significant decay and breakage, he may recommend an extraction.
Tooth Extractions before Orthodontics
Some patients have small jaws that do not give enough space for every tooth. This causes overlapping and crooked teeth. In some cases, a dental extraction may be offered before clear braces in Fort Worth, TX to give you a better outcome.
In the case of orthodontics, the extraction will not be noticeable, or the gap will close following ClearCorrect therapy, our affordable answer to traditional braces.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are located at the back of your mouth and come in much later than your other teeth and do not serve a purpose—late teens and early twenties are the most common time for their arrival. In many cases, they press against your needed teeth, which can mean jaw pain and other specific dental issues.
Additionally, wisdom teeth are sometimes unable to erupt through the gums because of spacing issues. This leaves you with partial eruptions that can lead to gum infections and dental emergencies.
Dr. Mund applies Ninja-like stealth to remove your wisdom teeth quickly and with ease.
At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, your comfort matters! This is why we offer television and blankets. We simply want you to feel at home and like family when you’re with us.
Following Dental Extractions
After an extraction, you may experience mild swelling and discomfort, but this usually disappears after a few days. Dr. Mund will provide the best aftercare instructions and any prescriptions you may need at home. However, over-the-counter ibuprofen is usually enough to see our patients through.
