Your Painful Tooth May Be Harming Your Oral Health

When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed and causing you pain, it can be difficult to accept you may need to remove your natural tooth in order to preserve your oral health. Our team is focused primarily on saving your teeth in the gentlest way possible, but sometimes a near painless and quick tooth extraction is the only healthy option left. We communicate openly and honestly about all the steps involved to ensure your questions and fears are addressed and you feel comfortable moving forward with the procedure.

“After you have had a tooth extracted, one of the most important things for maintining and taking care of it is protecting the blood clot. If the blood clot is lost before healing you develpp what’s called a dry socket. It is very important to protect that blood clot and allow it to stay in place for four or five days.”

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth pain can be caused by decay from infection or a cavity, oral trauma, impacted wisdom teeth, and stubborn baby teeth. In all these instances, a tooth may need to be removed to prevent a more serious issue from developing. Before your procedure, the extraction site will be fully numbed, so you will not feel any pain and only slight pressure while your tooth is extracted. The procedure itself is very simple and will be over quickly and with little-to-no discomfort to you.
Reasons We May Extract a Tooth:
• Advanced gum disease
• Advanced tooth decay or infection
• Orthodontic treatment
• Cosmetic treatment
• Fractured teeth

Treating Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Example of a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth that do not have adequate space to erupt normally may become impacted, resulting in pain, discomfort, and damage to surrounding teeth. Removal of these teeth ensures your existing teeth remain in place and no infection or decay occurs.

Socket Preservation for Dental Implants

If your tooth must be extracted, we recommend socket preservation to preserve the jaw bone around the empty socket and prepare it for dental implant placement in the future. As the best long-term solution to replace a missing tooth, dental implants are the only replacement option that act, look, and feel like your natural tooth.
