TOOTH EXTRACTIONS – BULLARD, TX

Removing Teeth for Better Oral Health

If you’re looking for the right dentist to take care of your nagging toothache in Bullard, look no further than Dr. Tad Morgan. In certain situations, the reason behind tooth discomfort is far more serious than something an over-the-counter pain reliever can fix. If suffering from severe decay or damage brought on by trauma, it may be that the tooth itself needs to be extracted to minimize pain and avoid future dental problems. It also may be that it’s not decay at all, and you are feeling no pain, yet, your dentist still recommends tooth extractions in Bullard. No matter the reason, if you would like to schedule an appointment to allow Dr. Morgan and his team to examine your smile and make a decision about your dental health, contact us today.

Reasons for a Tooth Extraction

While it is the goal of every dentist to help patients maintain their natural teeth, there are certain situations that warrant the removal of a tooth, such as:

  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Considered a “rite of passage” for most older teenagers, these third molars typically appear between the ages of 17-25. For some, wisdom teeth can erupt with no problems. For others, these teeth may only partially erupt or remain impacted beneath the gum line. If your dentist believes it is best to remove these teeth, or if they are causing any pain or a shift in your healthy teeth, you can expect to undergo an extraction. Dr. Morgan will take the appropriate approach to remove these molars safely while you remain completely comfortable during the process.
  • Severe Tooth Decay or Damage: If a tooth appears to be too damaged or decayed that a filling or dental crown will not suffice, Dr. Morgan will likely recommend an extraction. But don’t worry. The vacated socket will not stay that way, as this can pose additional problems. Instead, he will discuss replacement options (i.e. fixed bridge, dental implants) to restore your smile.
  • Upcoming Orthodontic Treatment: If you are preparing to undergo a form of orthodontic treatment and there is not enough adequate space in your mouth, we will need to extract one or more teeth to ensure a successful treatment.

Sedation Dentistry for Tooth Extraction

Naturally, you may feel uncertain or anxious about the idea of having a tooth extraction but luckily, Dr. Morgan has available solutions to help keep you calm and comfortable throughout the procedure. With sedation dentistry, you can feel completely relaxed during your visit.

We use NuCalm, which is a safe alternative that includes chewing on a tablet that is designed to lower your adrenaline. When ready, our team will apply a patch behind your ear that provides a subtle stimulation to encourage relaxation. Combine this with noise-canceling headphones and dark glasses, and you will remain calm and at ease throughout the process.

NuCalm also enables you to be aware so that you can follow the cues of your dental team, and it ensures you return to a normal mental state afterward.
