Tooth Extractions

Our caring dental team at Atencio Dentistry always wants to do everything we can to protect your natural teeth with general dentistry. Yet there are some situations where it is in the best interest of our patients to have a tooth extracted. Whether it is broken below the gum line or has become too decayed to save, sometimes removing a tooth is needed. When that time comes, you can rest assured that our team will make the procedure as quick and painless as possible.

Dr. Atencio specializes in providing dental care to those who need extra reassurance when visiting the dentist, especially for procedures such as a tooth extraction. Not only will he and our team make you comfortable in our treatment room with a comfy pillow and blanket, but if you prefer, you can opt for sedation for your tooth extraction. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Atencio and he will go over the options for sedation during your procedure. It is a relaxing way to have teeth removed without any pain or trauma.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The most common teeth that need removal even when they are healthy are the wisdom teeth. These late blooming molars do not usually arrive until the late teen years or even in the early twenties. Many people have no problems with their wisdom teeth and are able to keep them in place. Others may have a mouth that is already overcrowded, with wisdom teeth that become impacted or grow in sideways, causing alignment and other problems.

Dr. Atencio can monitor your teen’s wisdom teeth to determine if they will need to be removed. If they do pose a risk, often all four wisdom teeth can be removed at the same time, usually under sedation.
