First of all, once you get profound anesthesia on a patient, we wait until that happens, and the patient under full control. We let them know that if you think you feel something, let us know. And we do get patients who test us sometimes, they'll raise their hand before I even come close.
But once that happens, we usually just take our time, slowly expand the bone. And most time we take out teeth people never know it's out. I've been doing it for so long, and if I was going to specialize in something, it probably would have been oral surgery or endodontics. And those are the two other things that we do a lot of here, and I enjoy doing it.

So, although tooth removal is not ideal, if that does happen, we try to make sure the patient is comfortable during that procedure, and also give them options as far as replacing those missing teeth. If you have a dental emergency, we're more than happy to take care of that for you. But we want to make sure that we take care of our patients comprehensively, so make sure that they don't lose any more teeth. If you're looking for a dentist with a calm environment and for comprehensive care, come see us here at McRae Family Dental.
- Clear Aligner Therapy – Crowding can make orthodontic treatment more complex. Removing a few teeth can help you get your straight smile faster.
- Dental Implants – Implants are replacements for the roots of teeth. If your teeth are in bad shape, replacing them can improve your oral health.
At the same time, sometimes taking out a bad tooth is its own benefit. This is true for teeth that are severely infected. Removal can prevent that infection from spreading to other parts of your mouth or even your body. Impacted wisdom teeth are notorious for causing problems. Extracting them can save you from years of oral health issues and pain.
