Emergency Tooth Extractions – Immediate Dental Emergency Appointments

As a widely recognized Dallas cosmetic dentist, Dr. Melisa Christian specializes in tooth restoration procedures. During your emergency dental appointment, she and her dental team will try to do everything in their power to get you out of pain and restore your tooth. However, if the tooth is severely damaged, Dr. Christian may recommend an extraction to avoid an infection or further dental problems. Tooth extraction is performed under anesthesia or a topical numbing agent to minimize patient discomfort. Following tooth extraction Dr. Christian will send the patient home with specific recovery instructions and aftercare. Once the wound has healed patients may return to Dr. Christian’s cosmetic dentistry practice to undergo the advanced dental implant procedure also performed by Dr. Christian and her staff.
