We're in the tooth saving business. There are situations where teeth cannot be saved and must be removed. When that becomes necessary, we try to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. We offer nitrous oxide to relax, if necessary. We use topical anesthetic to numb the gum before the anesthetic is applied. After the procedure, we send you home with printed instructions after having gone over it with you so that you know how to care for the area after a tooth is extracted. Also, our phone number is on there. You'd be able to call us if you had any questions afterwards.
