Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
Dr. Perkins uses tooth extractions when necessary to restore oral health, prevent overcrowding or to treat impacted wisdom teeth. Taking a conservative approach to dentistry, Dr. Perkins will only use tooth extractions when beneficial to a patient’s long-term oral health. Tooth extractions are a routine dental treatment that can be completed in our Dunnellon, FL dentist office.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are commonly removed during a patient’s late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge and can often cause other teeth to shift due to overcrowding. Wisdom teeth can also become impacted causing discomfort and will need to be removed. Dr. Perkins can perform wisdom tooth removal from the comfort of our dentist office.

Tooth Extractions What to Expect
Having a tooth removed is usually more comfortable than patients anticipate. Using a local anesthetic, our dental care team will help our patients feel as comfortable as possible during treatment.
The tooth will be gently removed from the tooth socket. Dr. Perkins offers dental implant services to replace missing teeth. If the extracted tooth is in the smile zone or if it could affect the function or alignment of their smile, patients may choose to have the tooth replaced with a dental implant.
Our dental care team will explain all post treatment care to you prior to treatment to ensure a speedy recovery. Patients typically experience no post treatment complications. However, if you experience extensive bleeding, swelling or sharp pains, contact our Dunnellon, FL dentist office right away.
