Dr. Leif Gambee

How will you keep me comfortable during my tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction in McMinnville can feel like an overwhelming procedure. We understand that you might have concerns, and we're here to let you know that at Carlton Dental, our goal is to make your tooth extraction procedure as comfortable possible. Dr. Gambee is gentle and highly skilled and he uses the best dental anesthetics available to ensure that you don't feel any discomfort, so you can rest assured that your procedure will go smoothly.

We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, for complex procedures like a tooth extraction to help our patients feel more relaxed during their treatment. Nitrous can be safely delivered through an inhalation mask that is comfortable for you to wear during your procedure. It helps you to feel calm and at ease almost immediately, but it also leaves your body as soon as the mask is removed after your procedure, so there are no lingering side effects.

We encourage you to talk with Dr. Gambee about any concerns you may have about your tooth extraction procedure so we can help you feel completely at ease before your treatment. Contact your Carlton dental office today at (503) 852-7147 for more information about comfortable teeth extractions.

Covid-19 Update

We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.

To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.
