Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime. If your restorative dentist in Midwest City has recently suggested that you have one removed, you might be caught a bit off-guard. Although Dr. Steven Kendrick only recommends extractions as a last resort, there are times when it may be in your best interest. Dr. Kendrick may advise you to have one taken out if it has suffered significant damage or decay and can no longer be treated with a filling or dental crown. In some cases, you may need to have one removed prior to other treatments, like dental implants or braces. No matter the reason behind the need for the extraction, you have nothing to worry about when choosing Midwest Dental Center.

There are many reasons or special situations in which sedation may be needed during a dental appointment, but the most common reason is for dental phobia. Dental phobia is real and Midwest Dental Center recognizes that fact. Many patients avoid visiting their dental office because of the anxiety that they associate with sitting in the dental chair or from a preconceived notion that all dentists are out to hurt them. Your sedation dentist in Midwest City works hard to ensure each patient we come across receives a comfortable, positive experience because we know how that can positively affect your oral health in the future.
