Read on to learn more about our dental extraction services, when you might need them, and what to expect during the treatment process.
When do you need a dental extraction?
Dental extractions may be necessary for various reasons. One common cause is severe tooth decay, where advanced decay can warrant extraction to prevent complications. Impacted wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require extraction due to a lack of space, potentially leading to pain or damage to neighboring teeth. Additionally, orthodontic treatment may involve tooth removal to facilitate proper alignment. Lastly, in cases of severe tooth damage resulting from infection or gum disease, extraction becomes essential to prevent the spread of infection when other treatments like root canals or crowns are not viable options.
Did you know…
Thanks to advances in anesthesia and pain management, many people experience minimal discomfort during dental extractions.
Basic extractions involve the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. This is often done for teeth that are severely decayed or damaged but can be easily accessed.
Wisdom teeth extractions are a common procedure, especially among young adults. These third molars often lack the space to grow properly and can cause pain, crowding, and other complications.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth Extractions
When wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they can't fully emerge from the gums, they can cause significant discomfort and potential oral health issues. We specialize in safely extracting impacted wisdom teeth.
The Extraction Process
Before the extraction, Dr. Muzmml Raufy will perform a thorough examination, including X-rays if necessary, to assess the tooth's condition and plan the extraction strategy.
To ensure your comfort during the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the tooth. In some cases, sedation options may be available for patients with dental anxiety.
The tooth will be carefully and gently removed from its socket. Dr. Raufy and our team will use specialized instruments to ensure a smooth and painless extraction process.
