Tooth Extractions in Helena, MT

At Melton Dental, Dr. Sean Melton is committed to preserving natural teeth whenever possible, but there are instances where tooth extraction becomes necessary. A simple extraction is performed on teeth that are visible above the gumline, typically due to decay or damage beyond repair. Conversely, surgical extraction is required for teeth that have not yet emerged through the gums, such as wisdom teeth or impacted teeth with insufficient space in the mouth. Regardless of the extraction type, our team at Melton Dental in Helena, MT provides top-notch care. We offer various sedation options, including nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Contact us to find out more or to arrange a consultation with Dr. Melton to improve your dental health.

Dental extractions are done in our office with local anesthesia on the area near the tooth being removed. Other kinds of sedation might be used based on the extent of the procedure and to help keep you relaxed in case you have some dental anxieties. As soon as you are ready, Dr. Melton will begin the procedure. In a simple extraction, Dr. Melton will loosen up the tooth with a special device known as an elevator before removal. A surgical extraction involves making incisions into your gums to get to the tooth. If needed, the tooth might be broken up into smaller pieces so it can be taken out. Once the tooth has been removed, Dr. Melton will stitch the incision in the gums. Dr. Melton may write a prescription for antibiotics that need to be taken before and after the operation — in case you have a current illness, if your immune system is compromised, if the procedure is extended, or if you have some other special health problems.

Though some Helena, MT individuals might prefer to put off or avoid tooth extractions, getting these treatments done at Melton Dental immediately following diagnosis may offer a number of oral health advantages:

  • Creates room for dental implants to restore the look and function of the lost tooth
  • Avoids damage and decay in healthy surrounding teeth
  • Carried out utilizing a local anesthetic to numb the area and keep you as comfortable as possible
  • Fairly simple procedure that takes place in-office
  • Can work to stop the spread of infection

I had an emergency during a holiday weekend and they were the only office between Helena and Bozeman that would help. Since that time, I’ve been going to Dr. Melton. He’s thorough and makes sure there is no pain during procedures. His staff is wonderful too. Highly recommend!
