At Designer Family Dental, we always attempt to save our patients’ natural teeth, but in the instances when we can’t, a tooth extraction may be necessary. We strive to make this process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
A tooth extraction involves removing the tooth from its socket in the bone. Reasons for an extraction may include:
Teeth that have suffered trauma
Teeth that block other teeth from coming in
Advanced periodontal disease
Preparation for orthodontic work
At Designer Family Dental, our team of experts will examine the state of your dental health in order to determine what course of treatment will best suit you. If the treatment is tooth extraction, then an X-ray will be taken of the area. Using specialized dental instruments, the tooth will be removed from its socket. The site is then cleaned thoroughly, and a piece of gauze is placed to control the bleeding. After the procedure, the patient will receive at-home instructions.
Designer Family Dental is dedicated to making sure our patients have a healthy smile. If a tooth extraction is necessary, give our office a call and schedule an appointment at our nearest location.
