What is a Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extraction is a procedure that completely removes a tooth from the mouth.
The high-quality dental team you find at Dental Associates for Kids Only, LLP has been trained to use the most advanced procedures to save teeth. Unfortunately, there are just some instances in which saving the tooth is not an option. Other times, a tooth may need to be extracted proactively due to overcrowding.
The extraction procedure itself is done using local anesthesia and only involves a little bit of pressure. Using a special instrument, the tooth is gently rocked to loosen it and then lifted from the socket. The entire process is relatively quick and painless.
Benefits of Extractions
- Reduce pain from an ailing tooth
- Get rid of an infection or problem tooth
- Help with overcrowding issues
- Protect the rest of your teeth from decay and infection
- Help restore bite alignment
Are You a Good Candidate for Tooth Extraction?
Extractions are often a last resort for most dentists – especially when dealing with pediatrics. Restorative dentistry methods are often tried first in an attempt to save the natural tooth. However, an extraction may be recommended for those patients in the following situations:
- Badly decayed tooth
- Tooth injured or damaged due to trauma
- To reduce overcrowding as permanent teeth erupt
- As part of a plan for orthodontic treatment
