Tooth Extraction Auburn MA
Root canals, crowns, or bridges may not be enough to save a damaged tooth. At D.A. Dental we want to do everything in our power to save your natural teeth. If saving your tooth is not possible, our team can rid you of that damaged, painful tooth and develop a restorative treatment plan for you to give you a smile you can be proud of.
How Are Teeth Extracted?
Teeth extractions are one of the oldest and simplest dental procedures available. Infection was always a concern in the early days of extractions. While medications and tools have been modernized, the principle remains the same. With most extractions, our team simply grasps the damaged tooth with forceps and begins to move it around within the gum line until it comes free. This is known as a simple tooth extraction.
However, some extractions require a few additional steps, especially if your tooth's roots are particularly tough. If the tooth is still tightly bound within your gums, our team may have to break the tooth while in your mouth. Our professional can then remove it in fragments, causing less trauma to your mouth.
The third extraction method is for teeth that are impacted. This would involve a surgical extraction.
Will I Be Sedated?
Our professionals make every effort to keep you comfortable during any dental procedure. Extractions, like other procedures that involve the gums and roots of your teeth, can cause discomfort. That is why our team will utilize a local anesthetic before beginning an extraction. Traditional extractions typically do not require deep sedation because the treatment is localized to one area.
On the other hand, our team takes into account your needs. Our professionals will likely recommend or offer deep sedation or general anesthesia if you are having impacted teeth extracted because this procedure is more involved and can cause more discomfort.
What Happens Next?
Following a tooth extraction, patients should continue to brush and floss, but they need to be cautious around the extraction site.
Tooth extractions are designed to provide you with immediate relief from the pain caused by infected or damaged teeth. A tooth extraction is nothing to be afraid of or worried about. While it is the last resort for your oral health, our dentists take the most time to ensure things are painless.
They also make way for restorative treatments, such as a single-tooth implant or dental bridge. Once your extraction is complete, our team will work with you to choose a restoration option that is right for you.
Getting teeth pulled can be a stressful and nerve-racking experience. That is why it is important to choose the right team for the job. Our professionals at D.A. Dental will provide you with a stress-free extraction and prepare you for future restoration. You can schedule your appointment by calling us at (774) 374-8295.
