Oral Surgery in Thornton

Extractions, Wisdom Teeth, and More

At Trembath Dentistry, we provide a wide range of surgical services, including tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removal. Oral Surgery is the surgical removal of teeth, tooth root, or bony impaction. An extraction may be necessary for severe tooth decay or damage, tooth overcrowding, or major impaction to the tooth. If you are not looking for an extraction, there are other alternatives to having an extraction as well. An intraoral x-ray will help determine which option is best for your unique situation.

If you think you are experiencing tooth or jaw pain, give us a call to set up a consultation!

Platelet-Rich Fibrin

We use Platelet-Rich Fibrin during oral surgeries. It is a fibrin matrix that enables the body to heal faster and for oral surgeries to be less painful by using your own blood. This substance is rich in platelets and leukocyte cells and contains fibrin.

The Extraction Process: Pulling Teeth

During your session, we will begin your visit by numbing your tooth, jaw bone, and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic. Although you should not feel pain, you may feel pressure from the doctor firmly rocking your tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

Sectioning a Tooth

Sometimes, we may need to section a tooth because your tooth is firmly anchored in its socket or the tooth’s root is curved. To section a tooth, the doctor will cut the tooth into sections and remove each section one at a time.

Home Care Instructions

We ask you to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes after the appointment to encourage clotting. Because we don’t want the clot to dislodge, we ask that you do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol, or brush your teeth for 72 hours.
