Extractions explained: A guide to skilled tooth removal in Frederick, Maryland

Many dental emergencies can be prevented. We at Asuncion Dental Group work closely with our valued patients to maintain the health of their teeth and gums. When gum disease and tooth decay are kept at bay, the pain of toothaches and dental abscesses is largely avoided. These conditions represent some of the most common reasons patients seek out Dr. Frederick Asuncion for emergency dental care in Frederick, MD. Even those with severe tooth decay and oral infections can still avoid tooth extractions. It is only when interventions such as nonsurgical root canal therapy fail to preserve the tooth, that we must look to precisely and painlessly remove it. 

Extractions explained 

Generally, if a badly infected or severely decayed tooth is intact, we can remove the tooth with a “simple” extraction. You won’t feel anything due to our highly precise and comfortable approach to preparing the treatment site for the procedure. In fact, it may be the first time in days that you actually feel comfortable due to our anesthetic options. We can also discuss calming medications to support the most comfortable and pleasant experience at our office. 

Dr. Asuncion can then use his skill and specialized techniques to loosen and lift the tooth from its socket. Those individuals with a badly broken tooth, or a tooth that has not erupted or surfaced fully, may be candidates for surgical extraction. We have the on-site capabilities to handle many complex procedures, including oral surgeries such as surgical extractions. You may need these approaches if a wisdom tooth, for instance, is “impacted” in the bone and has failed to develop properly. Dr. Asuncion, or his trusted oral surgeon specialist partner, will access and remove the tooth using small, well-placed incisions. 

Regardless of if you need simple or surgical extraction, we offer predictable outcomes and support fast and healthy healing. We use advanced diagnostics to prepare for treatment so that we don’t encounter any surprises on the day of the procedure when we access the troubled tooth. Additionally, one of our greatest joys is to empower patients with credible, easy-to-understand information. There will be no “second-guessing” when it comes to our clearly communicated instructions for care before and after the removal of your tooth.
