Let an Experienced Dentist Handle Your Tooth Extraction
Whenever possible, we want to preserve your natural teeth. In certain cases though, the best way to keep your mouth healthy is a tooth removal or tooth extraction. Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI offers a comfortable treatment with special sedation options before undergoing a tooth removal or tooth extraction.Dr. Watterson Talks About Tooth Extraction Read Transcript
I believe one of the best things to have a great experience in a dental office is to be able to be comfortable. If we can achieve comfort, whether it be a great anesthetic technique so that you don't notice getting numb, or a sedation experience, whatever it may be to have that happen, allows that dental procedure to be even better. So, in an event where you're having a tooth removed, oftentimes the mental component of that is maybe more challenging than anything else. So, reassuring that we're gonna take great care of you is important, but keeping you comfortable is really the task that we have to be at the top of our game with every day.
If you need a tooth extraction, you want an experienced dentist to do it. And you want multiple tooth replacement options to restore your grin. We have both at our Jackson, MI dentist office!
Dr. Scott Watterson has performed countless tooth extractions in the two decades he’s been a dentist. He can even remove your wisdom teeth! Through his membership in multiple dental organizations, such as the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, he participates in continuing education to stay current on the latest dental techniques.
Dr. Scott Watterson and our compassionate team will make your extraction as quick and pain-free as possible.

We Ease Your Extraction With Technology, Sedation, Good Old-Fashioned Caring
Dr. Scott Watterson and our dental team use high-tech tools like our Galileos 3D imaging system, which gives us a good look at your tooth structure, including the roots. That kind of a comprehensive view makes our dentists aware of any possible complications prior to your procedure so they can plan accordingly.
After thoroughly numbing your mouth with local anesthesia, we’ll offer you:
- Comfort amenities like a blanket and pillow
- Entertainment options like TV and headphones
- Dental sedation, if you need it
Find Out Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction
While we do all we can to preserve your own teeth, extracting a tooth is the best way to maintain your oral health in certain situations. These include:
- A severely decayed or infected tooth
- A tooth that is so damaged that we can’t repair it with a dental crown
- A tooth that must be removed for dentures, orthodontics, or other dental treatments
