Patient-Friendly Technology Makes Extractions Easy
We always want to preserve your teeth, but there are some instances when a tooth removal or extractions are necessary to maintain your overall oral health. At 7 O’Clock Dental, LLC, we make the tooth removal or dental extractions procedure easy on you. We use some of the latest dental technology in our New Orleans, LA dentist office to ensure your treatment is as precise and painless as possible.
Our caring staff and comforts like massage chairs can help relax you if you’re feeling nervous about the procedure. And if your feelings are more like full-blown fear than mild anxiety, we can prescribe an oral sedative for you to take before you arrive at our office. You’ll arrive relaxed and remain that way throughout your procedure.
If you think you may need to have a tooth removed, call 7 O’Clock Dental, LLC in New Orleans, LA at (504) 266-0664.
We Use Patient-Friendly Technology for Trouble-Free Extractions
Dr. John Tripp uses a panoramic X-ray to plan your procedure. Unlike traditional X-rays, which offer small views of your mouth, a panoramic X-ray shows your entire mouth, including:
- All of your teeth
- Your upper and lower jaws
- Your nasal area and sinuses
This reveals problems like bone abnormalities, impacted teeth, infections, or cysts that could otherwise complicate your extraction. The best time to find out about possible complications is before your procedure starts!
And we don’t have to put anything in your mouth for panoramic X-rays. You just relax as the machine rotates around your head and does its work.
We also use a tool called the DentalVibe that takes the sting – and the worry – out of the anesthesia process. You needn’t be nervous when we numb your mouth using DentalVibe. It overloads your nerves when you receive your injection, so you won’t feel a thing!
We Care for You After Your Extraction
When you lose teeth, either by accident or due to extraction, your bone under that tooth can shrink. This loss of bone mass can lead to further tooth loss, which we never want to happen to you! We can preserve the sockets of your extracted teeth using bone growth supplements that Dr. Tripp places directly into the socket. This is ideal for patients who plan to get a dental implant or a dental bridge once healing has completed.
