At our dental office in Kelowna, Okanagan Smiles does everything possible to create a safe and calm environment for our patients.


Tooth Extractions

Accidents happen and sometimes a tooth cannot be fixed. In these cases, an extraction will be required to ensure the overall oral health of a patient. If your tooth fits into this category rest assured you are in good hands at Okanagan Smiles. Our doctors have removed thousands of teeth during their careers, giving them the practice and experience to perform a perfect extraction. We extract teeth in-office, and provide oral sedation for patients who feel anxiety around tooth extractions. To put you at ease, we’ll walk you through the process of the extraction to help relieve nervousness and make the procedure as painless as possible.

Teeth may need to be removed for a variety of reasons. These include the removal of wisdom teeth if they become impacted, pulling teeth for braces, removal of decaying or damaged teeth, etc. If the tooth is impacted, it may need to be broken into pieces before removal. This is quite common, and it sounds worse than it is!

Our doctors will work to ensure the patient is as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure. In most cases, our patients should expect that a tooth extraction will leave the general area a bit sore afterwards, and over-the-counter pain medication will help ease the discomfort. Our team will also advise on how to care for the area while your mouth heals. While losing a tooth may seem like a traumatic experience, it doesn’t have to be. Our team will put you at ease every step of the way to help make your tooth extraction just a little more bearable.
