Dental Care In San Antonio
Having a tooth pulled can be a frightening experience – unless you’re in the good hands of an experienced dentist who makes it as quick, effective, and virtually painless as possible.
Whether you need to have a wisdom tooth removed due to overcrowding, or you have a tooth that is decayed or infected, the dentists at Shebah Dental in San Antonio, Texas have the expertise to perform an extraction with your comfort in mind.
In some cases, an infected tooth can be saved through root canal. However, if it has become severely infected, extraction may be necessary. If that is the case, the dentist will start by assessing the severity of your condition. If you require multiple extractions, or a tooth is impacted, or you are susceptible to pain, the dentist may use general anesthesia so you sleep peacefully during the safe procedure.
When you have a tooth extracted, be sure to notify your primary care doctor. He or she may prescribe an antibiotic following the extraction as a preventive measure to eliminate the risk of a subsequent infection.
If you are experiencing tooth pain for any reason, contact Shebah Dental today and arrange an appointment by calling (210) 448-1000 or use our convenient online form.
