Normally when a tooth becomes infected by decay, your dentist will seek to save it with a filling or crown treatment, but in some cases that’s not quite enough to do the trick. If a tooth is damaged beyond repair, your dentist may need to surgically remove the tooth using a process called extraction. When an extraction is needed, never attempt to do it on your own, but instead seek to locate a dentist who specializes in Orlando, FL extractions. Dr. Kasem, in Orlando, FL, has perfected the extraction procedure to where dry socket, swelling and pain are minimal or nonexistent. Dr. Kasem has 39 years of experience in doing tooth extractions.
When is an Extraction Necessary?
Though it’s usually tooth decay that warrants a need for immediate extraction, there are other cases when an extraction may be justified. Those other reasons may include: an excess number of teeth crowding the mouth, when a patient is preparing for braces, or when a patient is preparing to receive radiation treatment for cancer or another form of illness. Before the extraction takes place, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and then decide the best way to remove the tooth.
The other type of extraction, known as a surgical extraction, is performed when a tooth is broken or not visible from the outside. In general, this procedure is much more complex and may require the use of drugs to help the patient to relax. There are very rarely complications with surgical extractions.
Wisdom tooth extractions are usually done in a single visit. The mouth is numbed completely before the procedure to minimize any discomfort. Stitches are usually placed to allow quicker, thorough healing. Tooth Extraction of wisdom teeth is usually necessary when the jaw is not large enough to accommodate them so that they become impacted (do not erupt or only partially erupt.) Sometimes wisdom teeth grow in sideways or stay trapped in the gum and bone. This can allow bacteria to travel inside the gums and cause an infection or a cyst to develop and grow. The infection and cyst can in turn damage and destroy the jawbone. If the teeth come in poorly positioned or not in alignment with the other teeth, they can damage the adjacent teeth and will need to be removed. Put Yourself In Our Expert Hands...
