Tooth extraction may become necessary when there is an infection, pain, or an overcrowded mouth. At Radiant Dental Care in Pasadena, TX, we offer gentle tooth extractions as a part of your oral health care routine to give you relief from your severe condition. Our dentist, Dr. Deborah Sprott, is gentle, effective, and experienced in tooth extractions, making the process as easy as possible for you.
What Are the Reasons For Tooth Removal?
A tooth extraction sometimes becomes unavoidable despite making every effort to save our natural teeth. A few regular instances include severe trauma to a tooth, impacted wisdom teeth, or an overcrowded mouth that needs orthodontic care. Traditional braces treatment requires the removal of a few teeth. We also extract excessively decayed or infected teeth that cannot be restored even with restorative procedures like a root canal and dental crown.
How Is the Extraction Done?
There are two types of extractions; simple and surgical. In a simple extraction, we inject a local anesthetic to numb the areas around your cheek, gums, and mouth. Once numb, Dr. Deborah Sprott will use tools to extract the tooth painlessly. We will take sufficient care to keep you comfortable throughout the process. You should only feel mild pressure during this procedure. After the tooth extraction, we will clean the area and seal the socket to ensure adequate healing.
If the tooth is impacted beneath the gum line, we will do surgical extraction by cutting through the gums to get to the tooth. This surgery involves using an anesthetic but is a practical way to remove a tooth that causes you problems. Stitches will be done after the removal of the tooth in the areas of the incision.
What Are the Risks With Tooth Extraction?
We take all necessary precautions during the tooth extraction process. We only extract teeth when absolutely necessary because your oral health would be put at risk because of it. If by any chance there is a side effect, our staff can handle it effectively.
As with any type of procedure, there is a risk of infection, excessive bleeding, and breathing issues. Dr. Deborah Sprott will actively watch for signs of any problems during the process and provide you with precise instructions for your home care. Should you experience any issues after the procedure, schedule an appointment right away.
Tooth extractions are a safe and efficient way to deal with serious oral health issues that other tooth restoration options cannot be resolved.
