At Kingsview Dental, we understand that tooth extraction can be a necessary and sometimes daunting procedure. Our experienced team of dentists is dedicated to providing safe and comfortable tooth extraction services, ensuring the restoration of your oral health with care and precision.
When is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Tooth extraction may be recommended in several situations, including:
- Severely decayed teeth: When tooth decay reaches an advanced stage, extraction may be necessary if the tooth is beyond repair.
- Impacted wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often grow improperly and can cause pain, infection, or damage to surrounding teeth. In such cases, extraction is commonly recommended.
- Overcrowding: In orthodontic treatment, tooth extraction may be necessary to create space for proper alignment of the remaining teeth.
- Gum disease: Advanced periodontal disease can cause teeth to become loose, making extraction necessary to prevent further damage and maintain oral health.
- Trauma or injury: If a tooth is severely damaged or fractured due to trauma or injury, extraction may be required if it cannot be effectively restored.
The Tooth Extraction Process:
- Comprehensive examination: Our skilled dentists will conduct a thorough examination, which may include X-rays, to assess the condition of the tooth and determine the best approach for extraction.
- Anesthesia and comfort: To ensure your comfort during the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the tooth.
- Gentle extraction: Using specialized instruments, our dentists will gently and carefully remove the tooth from its socket. They will apply gentle pressure to loosen the tooth before extraction.
- Post-extraction care: After the tooth extraction, our dental team will provide you with detailed instructions on post-operative care to promote proper healing. This may include recommendations for pain management, oral hygiene, and dietary restrictions.
Replacing Extracted Teeth:
If a tooth extraction leaves a gap in your smile, our dentists will discuss tooth replacement options with you. Depending on your unique situation, we may recommend dental implants, bridges, or dentures to restore both the function and aesthetics of your smile.
