Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction
There are many different scenarios in which we may suggest a tooth extraction. Some of these include:
- A tooth is severely damaged and irreparable
- Crowded teeth keep you from starting orthodontic treatment
- Teeth are impacted below the gums, putting you at risk of infection
- Gum disease has caused bone and tissue supporting a tooth to become loose
- Severe tooth decay has led to an infection that can’t be treated with a root canal
How Do Tooth Extractions Work?
For tooth extractions, we will begin by using a gadget called an “elevator” that gently lifts the damaged tooth out of its socket so it’s easier to remove from your mouth. The dentist will grasp the tooth using a pair of dental forceps, and gently wiggle it out of the socket, helping any connecting tissues anchoring the tooth break free. Finally, we’ll apply a dressing on the extraction site and some recovery tips before sending you on your way!
