While we all like to avoid tooth loss as much as possible, sometimes a tooth is causing more harm than it is doing good in your mouth. Many patients experience overcrowded smiles, infected teeth, or complications from wisdom teeth growing in.
To help remove problematic teeth, Linton Dental provides professional tooth extraction services. The tooth extraction process involves the safe dislodging of a tooth from your soft tissues and your jawbone. You can rest assured that when you need a tooth extraction, Linton Dental can help you restore your dental health and remove a tooth that is causing you pain.

Our entire team at Linton Dental is happy to answer any questions you might have regarding your upcoming tooth extraction procedure. Here are some frequently asked questions:
When do wisdom teeth typically grow in?
Your wisdom teeth typically grow around your late teens or early twenties. While some people do not experience any symptoms as the teeth grow in, others will experience some discomfort as they begin to erupt. Your gums may become red, inflamed, or tender around the eruption sites.
Why do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth grow in after the rest of your mouth has already fully developed. This means that there might not be much room left in your mouth for these new teeth. As they attempt to erupt, they may become impacted due to the lack of space in your mouth. If they do manage to erupt, because they are in a difficult position to reach in the far back of your gums, you may find it challenging to keep them clean and free of infection.
Will tooth extraction hurt?
No, your tooth extraction should not cause you pain. We will numb the extraction site with a local anesthetic. We also offer sedation dentistry solutions like laughing gas or oral-conscious sedatives to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. You may feel some pressure as the tooth is dislodged, but this shouldn’t be painful. We will advise you on proper aftercare steps to take to ensure any soreness you may experience after the anesthesia wears off is managed.
