When A Tooth Extraction May Be Necessary
There are many reasons you may require a tooth removal, including:

- Infection or risk of infection

- To prepare for orthodontic treatment, or to maintain alignment after orthodontic treatment
- Failing teeth resulting from gum disease

- Wisdom teeth that require removal
Gentle Tooth Extractions From Panama City Smiles
Regardless of your particular situation, our highly skilled dentists can help. There are two basic types of extractions:
- Simple extractions are for visible teeth that need to be removed. First, we will give you a local anesthetic to put you at ease. Then, Dr. Patel or Dr. Pappas will use a modern technique to gently remove your tooth.
- Surgical extractions are done for more complicated cases, like when a tooth is broken or impacted. In these cases, we may use dental sedation in addition to local anesthesia to ensure your optimum comfort.
We also provide a menu of amenities to help you relax during your procedure:
- Relaxing music
- Warm towels
- Comfortable neck pillows
- A snack and drink bar
Following the extraction of one or more teeth, we will provide specific instructions to minimize your discomfort and speed up the recovery process. Don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions.
