Although your permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are certain cases that may arise that require an extraction. Winterset Dental provides comfortable extractions that will help you get back to your normal life in no time.

Tooth extraction is typically considered a last resort when no other option is suitable. There are several reasons why a person may need to have a tooth extracted including the following:

  • Decay or damage

  • Teeth preventing other teeth from coming in

  • A tooth that is damaging other teeth

  • Baby teeth that do not fall out on their own

  • Infection

  • Preparation for braces

Any of these conditions may require a tooth extraction. Our dentists will examine you and discuss your options with you depending on your situation. If you have pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth, we can help you with that as well.

During a tooth extraction, you will not feel any significant pain or discomfort as we always administer a local anesthetic to numb the area. At Winterset Dental in Winterset, we offer laughing gas as extra options for comfort. After extraction, our dental professionals will tell you what to do to keep bleeding and swelling under control until you heal completely.
