When Tooth Extraction is Needed:
● Baby Teeth: Misshapen or long roots hindering the natural falling out process.● Decayed Teeth: Extensive decay jeopardizes surrounding teeth and jaw health.● Infection: Severe infection requiring removal for overall oral health.● Orthodontic Correction: Strategic removal to facilitate orthodontic treatment.● Wisdom Teeth: Impacted or causing complications.
Evaluation: Your dentist assesses the need for extraction during a regular checkup or schedules a specific visit.
Procedure: The tooth is carefully extracted by expanding the tooth socket and separating it from the ligament holding it in place.
Quick and Efficient: While extraction is typically swift, preferences for sedation or concerns should be communicated to your dentist.
● Neighboring teeth may shift, impacting chewing and jaw joint function.● To prevent complications, your dentist may recommend replacing the extracted tooth.
Whether for preventive or corrective reasons, tooth extraction is a precise procedure ensuring the overall health of your smile. If you have concerns or questions, discuss them with your dentist for personalized care and guidance.
