Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Tooth Extraction

How can we help you?

Here at Hawaiian Island Dental, we always welcome and encourage our patients' questions. There's a lot involved with achieving and maintaining a healthy smile, and we'll provide the information and support you need to make it easy and convenient.

Please take a look through some of the questions that we hear most often from our patients. If you have other questions, don't hesitate to call or email us so we can help you find the answers you need.

Tooth Extraction

Your comfort is crucial to us at Hawaiian Island Dental! We understand your concerns and will do everything to ensure that you have a pain-free, stress-free procedure.

Experience counts for a lot in dentistry, and Dr. Jaurequi has been practicing for over 25 years. He is very gentle when delivering your anesthesia and will ensure that you don't feel any discomfort during your procedure. Once your tooth is numb, you shouldn’t feel anything except for some light pressure.

Nitrous Oxide to Soothe Your Anxiety

We are also pleased to offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help you relax through your treatment. Nitrous oxide is perfectly safe and strong enough to produce pleasant effects but so mild that it's safe to use for children.

With nitrous, you’ll remain fully awake and won’t go to sleep during your procedure. However, you’ll feel very drowsy and dreamy, and the sights and sounds around you will fade into the background.

Our busy patients really appreciate that using nitrous has no lingering drowsy side effects. They can have their treatment, then go back to their usual daily routine.
