Your permanent teeth are supposed to last the rest of your life, but sometimes we may have to pull a tooth to preserve your overall oral health. There are many reasons why we may recommend a tooth extraction. Common reasons include:
While we will try to save your tooth with a root canal treatment, if your tooth is too badly decayed or infected to be restored, our dentist may need to pull it.
The size of the jaw and teeth can lead to crowding, resulting in crooked teeth. By removing a tooth or two, it provides space for the other teeth to become properly aligned with the help of braces.
Usually due to accidents and injuries from contact sports, dental trauma can result in tooth fractures, loose teeth, and bone tissue injuries. Extraction may be necessary in certain cases.
Untreated periodontal diseases can cause the teeth to become loose, which may necessitate extraction.
If you are experiencing pain from a dental infection or injury, call our office to schedule an exam. We will try to treat your toothache or injury with root canal treatment or emergency dental services whenever possible.
Our dentist will perform an examination and take X-rays to assess the condition of your tooth. If our dentist determines the tooth should be pulled, we will schedule an appointment for extraction. We will try to perform same-day extractions in emergency situations, but this will be on a case by case basis.
Tooth extractions are typically safe and simple procedures. To prepare your tooth for extraction, our dentist will numb your mouth with local anesthesia. For your comfort, we may also recommend laughing gas sedation to make your procedure as pain-free as possible. Once your tooth has been removed, our dentist will pack the socket with gauze to help stop the bleeding. We may place stitches to close the extraction site depending on your needs.
Our dentist can recommend or prescribe pain relievers as necessary to reduce any swelling and discomfort after the procedure. Your recovery will take a few days. Be sure to avoid solid foods, and follow all post-operative instructions to ensure a comfortable recovery.
