What Do Tooth Extractions Help With?
A tooth extraction is the removal of the tooth. While we tend to avoid removing a tooth whenever possible, sometimes a tooth extraction is necessary to protect the health of your smile. A tooth extraction may be needed to restore the full health of your smile if you have one or more teeth that have become severely damaged in some way, including:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant amount or most of the tooth or its supporting bone structure.
- Severe tooth decay that that has damaged a tooth beyond repair and cannot support a restoration
- Crowding of teeth
What to Expect
Depending on the situation, your extraction may be a simple removal or a surgical removal. With simple removals, our dentist will be able to remove your tooth in one piece. For more complex extractions involving the removal of gum tissue or bone, a surgical extraction will need to be performed, in which the tooth is removed in several pieces.As you go through the recovery process, we recommend that you avoid rinsing your mouth excessively and follow the diet that our dentist will suggest for you. For the first three days after your extraction, if you experience any swelling or tension, we advise you to contact our office immediately for treatment. If you are seeking to replace missing teeth, we can consult with you to decide which restorations will help you achieve a full smile again.If you need to receive a tooth extraction, we invite you to contact us today and set up a visit with our dentist!
