Is an Extraction Right for You?
An extraction simply means to have a tooth removed. Some also call it having a tooth pulled. No matter what you may call it, the result is the same. A dentist will remove the entire tooth using some degree of force
In some cases, a surgical incision will need to be made on the gum to assist with removing the tooth. After the tooth is out, a blood clot will form, and your dentist will pack it. If an incision is made, after the tooth is removed, it will be stitched.
Benefits of Extracting Teeth
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. Generally speaking, extractions are safe, but there is a risk of infection. We send each patient home with a list of do’s and don’ts to ensure a successful recovery.
While we know patients have a good understanding of their oral health, talking to a dentist is the only way to determine if an extraction procedure is right for you.
Have You Been Dealing with Tooth Pain?
Surgical extractions can also prevent damage to your other teeth. Once a tooth is decayed, it will start to affect the surrounding teeth too. This means if not treated as soon as possible, you could have more than one tooth that needs to be pulled.
It’s important to tell your dentist of any problems or medications you may be taking before an extraction is performed. Those with compromised immune systems or those with an infection may need to wait before having the removal done.
Restorations After Extractions
Having to have a tooth extracted because of tooth decay doesn’t mean you have to live with a gap in your smile. In addition to extractions, Soundview Family Dental provides many restoration options to fill a hole in your smile after having a tooth extracted. We offer dental implants, dentures, and bridges. While having wisdom teeth removed won’t require a restoration, we can help improve your smile, if the wisdom teeth had caused a shift in the alignment of your teeth.
There is no need to worry about a gap in your smile after an extraction. We will talk about your options in detail to ensure you get the perfect fit for your needs and your budget.
We know the idea of having an extraction can be somewhat frightening, especially if you’ve never had to have a tooth pulled, or any type of extensive dental treatments done. But we guarantee you are in good hands with Dr. Kitts and Dr. Hewett. We will make sure you are comfortable before and during the procedure, and walk you through what to expect throughout recovery.
