Getting a tooth extracted isn’t a dental procedure most of us want to do. But having your extraction or other oral surgery procedure performed in familiar surroundings by a dentist you trust makes the process easier and less stressful.Doctor Douglas Callow on an overview of oral surgery options Read Transcript
Part of the painless services that we provide often includes extraction of teeth, whether those teeth are broken down, decayed or also the extraction of certain wisdom teeth, when we see patients and provide them with those extraction services, we expect our oral surgery procedures to be painless. We offer our patients lots of local anesthetic and laughing gas, nitrous oxide, so that they're comfortable when they receive those procedures.
For three decades, Doug Callow, DDS has performed plenty of extractions in our Plymouth, MI dentist office. He can handle most tooth removals without having to refer them to an outside oral surgeon. He can even remove wisdom teeth.
Technology, Sedation Make Oral Surgery Easier
We use technology that helps give us a comprehensive view of your mouth prior to your oral surgery procedures, including:
- Digital X-rays. Unlike traditional X-rays, we can easily enlarge or sharpen digital images to get a better idea of what’s going on in your mouth. Not only that, but digital X-rays emit a fraction of the radiation of traditional X-rays.
- Intraoral camera. This handheld digital camera not only lets us get into hidden corners of your mouth, but it also enables us to share images with you so you can get a clear visual sense of your condition.
We thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia. Still, you may be a little nervous about your extraction. If you are, nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) can soothe you with a mild euphoric feeling that quickly vanishes after your procedure. You’ll feel like yourself and even be able to drive yourself home shortly after your extraction.
Enjoy Our Amenities During Your Tooth Extraction
Even if you opt for nitrous oxide, you can further relax in our chair. Our caring staff can offer:
- A soft pillow
- A warm blanket
- Headphones for listening to music
