Tooth Extraction Garland, TX

An extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma, or crowding. At Cornerstone Family Dentistry in Garland, TX, we provide comfortable tooth extraction treatment to prevent tooth damage and infection. Tooth extractions are a general dentistry treatment we provide. 

If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, your dentist will advise you on post-op instructions. In most cases, a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Garland, TX

It’s possible to keep your wisdom teeth in some circumstances. If they erupt safely and you can keep them clean, they can remain in your mouth for many years. However, they will need to be removed if they become stuck or impacted due to a lack of room inside your mouth. If you experience a dull, constant pain or pressure in the back of your jaw, or if you notice that there is a loose flap in the gums around that area, an impacted wisdom tooth is likely to blame
