Tooth Extractions: Safe and Simple Tooth Extraction Procedures

Dr. Keith Phillips will take care of your Tooth Extractions

As a highly trained prosthodontist, Dr. Phillips works hard to keep patients’ natural teeth in the best health and shape possible, turning to tooth extraction as a last resort. There are instances, however, when it is in a patient’s best interest to extract a tooth. There could be many reasons for this:

  • Advanced or recurrent decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Trauma to one or more teeth
  • Wisdom teeth causing pain or overcrowding.

Whatever the cause may be, Dr. Keith Phillips and his team will complete the process with minimal discomfort to the patient through this process:

  • Numb the tooth & gums
  • Administer conscious IV sedation for fearful patients (optional)
  • Gently remove the tooth
  • Clean out any infected areas
  • Suture the site if needed.
