TOOTH EXTRACTION IN HARRISBURG NC
Your teeth are important! We do our best to save natural teeth whenever possible through effective preventive dentistry and early diagnostics. However, despite our best efforts, sometimes removing a tooth is the only way to protect your oral health and wellness.
In some cases, such as teeth that have not erupted properly or are badly broken down, we may need to surgically remove your tooth and finish the procedure with stitches.
The good news is that your mouth heals quickly and most patients can avoid complications by following a few simple instructions:
- Avoid smoking cigarettes or drinking from a straw. This may dislodge the blood clot and cause dry socket, which can be painful and delay healing.
- Avoid chewing in the area of your extraction. Food particles and pressure can upset the healing process.
- Keep your surgical site clean. We will show you how to maintain the surgical site to promote healing.
There is no reason to be anxious about your procedure as we take great care to ensure patient comfort and peace of mind. We offer nitrous oxide to help anxious patients relax during any and all procedures. Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that we administer through a nose mask to ensure that you stay relaxed throughout your procedure.

A friend referred me to Dr Icard after I had a particularly difficult time getting prepared for crowns at another dentist. Upon meeting Dr Icard and his team the first time, I immediately felt more at ease. The office is bright and pleasant, and the front office staff is incredibly kind and friendly. Dr Icard himself, exudes calm confidence. He is incredibly knowledgeable, while at the same time, immediately open and approachable. His office is set up with very high tech equipment, all aimed at giving the patient the best dental experience possible. Even the administration of anesthetic was as completely relaxed and pain free as I’ve EVER experienced. As I was waiting for my crowns to be built (he builds them right there in his office, so I had everything done in one appointment!) he checked on me to make sure I was comfortable and throughout the visit, seemed genuinely invested in the comfort of his patient. I suggest you try his office for your next dental procedure, I believe you may decide you actually LIKE going to the dentist!
Both are wonderful Dentist and the staff is very caring!
