Our goal is to protect your oral health by using any means available to preserve your natural teeth. But no matter how diligent you are about your dental care, the time may come when it’s necessary to remove a tooth.
Supportive, Compassionate Care
We know that the thought of losing a tooth, for whatever reason, can be a little overwhelming. You not only have to face the idea of having a missing tooth, but you are also most likely a little stressed about going through the procedure itself.
At Wausau Smiles Dental, we believe in building long-term patient relationships so that we can create a trusting environment where you always feel comfortable. Gaining your trust by getting to know you can go a long way toward putting you at ease and making your treatment as stress-free as possible.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
We stress the importance of preventative dental treatments to protect and preserve your teeth; however, any of the following situations may make tooth extraction necessary:
- Severe decay or infection that cannot be treated with a root canal
- Cracks or fractures of a tooth below the gumline
- Placement of full or partial dentures
- Alignment issues or preparation for orthodontic treatment
- Impacted wisdom teeth
It’s important for you to be part of the decision-making process, and we will take the time to answer your questions and explain why the procedure is necessary.
Your Comfort Is Our First Priority
Dr. Bushong has performed many extractions for adults as well as children. His skill and gentle touch, combined with updated dental techniques, make extraction safe and efficient and minimize stress and post-operative discomfort.
Our caring team is very sensitive to your concerns and will do everything possible to make sure you are completely comfortable. If you need to have a tooth extracted, you can be sure that we will be with you every step of the way to support and encourage you. After you get home, Dr. Bushong will contact you personally to make sure that you are doing well and to answer any questions you may have.
If you need a tooth extracted on an emergency basis, you can be sure we will get you in for treatment as quickly as possible – usually the same day.
