Do I need a tooth extraction?
We always make every effort to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady. Unfortunately, in some cases, damage to teeth is in so advanced a stage that is may be necessary to extract the tooth in order to maintain dental health. If a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed, it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional.
Tooth extractions can also be used as part of orthodontic treatment. Protruding or extra teeth can be removed to help your teeth be repositioned through Invisalign or braces treatment.
If you’re experiencing severe dental pain, call our office right away. We will take X-rays and examine your tooth to determine the cause and the best treatment. If we can’t save your tooth, we will perform a simple extraction. The procedure is simple and can be completed in one visit. First, we will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic to make your experience as pain-free we possible. Our dentist will remove the tooth and cover the socket with sterile gauze and suture the socket closed if necessary.
Do tooth extractions hurt?
Some mild to moderate discomfort and swelling following your extraction is normal. Our dentist can recommend anti-inflammatory pain relievers to help ease your symptoms. We may also prescribe antibiotics if necessary.
