Reasons for a tooth extraction

There are various scenarios where a simple extraction can alleviate discomfort or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure. Some common reasons for extraction include:

  • Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots
  • Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth
  • Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment
  • Removing a fractured or malformed tooth
  • Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy

How is a tooth extracted?

Tooth Extraction

As a precautionary measure, the dentist will begin by taking X-rays of the tooth or teeth in question to aid in planning the procedure. Following this, a local anesthetic will be administered to prevent you from feeling pain during the extraction.

Once removed, we will pack gauze into the socket and have you place pressure on the area by biting down.  If necessary, the dentist will place stitches to close the socket.

If you are sick the week prior to your scheduled extraction or on the day of, please contact our office, as alternative arrangements may need to be made.  Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
