Tooth Extraction in Fort Worth, TX

Improve Your Oral Health With Tooth Extraction

Having teeth removed can solve a host of oral health problems. At Christina Greene Family Dentistry, we offer both emergency tooth extraction and wisdom teeth extraction to residents of Keller, TX, and the Fort Worth area. Whether you have a chipped, fractured, or infected tooth or insufficient room for accommodating newly emerging wisdom teeth, you can count on Dr. Christina Greene for rapid relief and the restoration of a healthy smile.

Emergency Tooth Extraction

Broken and severely damaged or infected teeth are sometimes impossible to salvage. If you're dealing with any of these issues, Dr. Greene will assess the nature and location of the damage and detail your options for correcting it. If it's possible to save your damaged tooth, a root canal procedure may be recommended. This will preserve the integrity of your bite and prevent facial sagging.

However, extraction can make treating a painful and fast-spreading infection easier in some cases. Moreover, we'll still have options for completing your smile and for restoring balance across your bite forces. After your extraction is complete, Dr. Greene can help you plan for dental implants, a dental bridge, or even a partial denture if needed.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Not everyone gets wisdom teeth. However, when Fort Worth area residents do have these teeth erupt, most don't have sufficient room to fully accommodate them. This can lead to partial eruption or impaction, mouth odors, and infection. It can also result in tooth migration that causes crowding, alignment issues, and other orthodontic problems.

Our wisdom teeth removal services are safe, effective, and virtually pain-free. We offer multiple options in anesthesia and a treatment process that's streamlined for assured comfort and peace of mind.

What to Expect After Your Tooth Extraction

Healing after wisdom teeth extraction can be a challenging process. Our team will talk you through the recovery process by offering tips for cleaning your mouth, choosing the right foods, and avoiding activities that slow healing. If you have an emergency extraction, we'll provide similar advice. However, we'll also encourage and support you in planning for the next stage of the smile restoration process. This way, you won't have to deal with the social challenges of having an incomplete smile, and your remaining, natural teeth won't be subjected to undue wear and tear.

Options in Wisdom Teeth Extraction and Smile Restoration

Every tooth in your mouth serves an important purpose. When even one is missing, all of your remaining teeth can sustain increased wear. While wisdom teeth extraction is actually capable of improving your oral health, urgent tooth extractions often have quite the opposite effect. When missing teeth aren't replaced, an imbalanced bite and increased stress can cause your remaining teeth to fracture and crack. These and other structural damages can let harmful, decay-causing bacteria in, and they might increase your likelihood of tooth loss.

At Christina Greene Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of smile restoration options. Whether you need a painful, infected tooth pulled, are ready to have your wisdom teeth out, or want to rebuild your smile after an extraction, we've got you covered.
