Tooth Extractions

If you need a tooth extraction, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and anxious. After all, who wants to go through the process of having an area of your mouth cut away?

Signs that You Need a Tooth Extraction

You might be surprised that pulling a tooth can be the best solution for irreparable tooth damage or decay. Also, dental extractions can provide relief from pain due to a damaged tooth that is beyond repair. Additionally, tooth removal may be the only way to prevent the spread of infection and help preserve tooth alignment in some instances. Ultimately, one of our expert dentists will be able to assess your individual oral health needs and determine if a tooth extraction is the best option for you.

Advantages of Tooth Extractions

Although seen as a last resort, tooth extractions can be beneficial for various reasons. Pain relief is often the primary incentive for tooth removal, as extractions can eliminate discomfort resulting from tooth decay or infection. In some cases, tooth extraction is necessary to make room in the mouth for orthodontic treatments or to repair bite problems. Additionally, tooth removal may be performed as a preventative measure to avoid future dental issues.

Furthermore, tooth extraction eliminates the need and cost of filling cavities. Tooth extractions can help maintain the health and stability of one’s teeth while avoiding more complex and expensive treatments down the road.

How It Works

Before removing teeth, our dentists prepare the patient by offering anesthesia to numb the area and dental sedation to relax the patient’s mind. Then, the tooth is carefully removed from the socket. If necessary, the dentist will suture the gums back together.
