Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction at Dental Care 4 U

Our dentists aim to keep your teeth healthy as long as possible. However, tooth extraction is sometimes needed as many problems can occur if a tooth isn’t extracted. If you’re anxious about the idea of a tooth extraction, know that we’re here for you and your family. 

Wisdom teeth are the most common reasons for tooth extractions because impacted wisdom teeth can cause misalignments in the teeth over time, leading to gum disease and jaw deformities. However, baby teeth that aren’t erupting properly, trauma-related incidents, and severe root canal infections can also benefit from a tooth extraction. In other cases, tooth extractions may also be needed for orthodontic care (specifically for overcrowding) and preparations for cosmetic treatments such as dentures. 

During your appointment, we will perform a thorough examination to evaluate your dental and medical history, examine your oral health, and perform screenings to diagnose potential issues. If there are signs of trauma or disease to a tooth that can’t be saved, Dr. Khurana can discuss treatment options with you, prepare you for needed tooth extractions, and schedule regular follow-up appointments to ensure you’re healthy and pain-free.

Our dentists work with various medically safe to improve your health and ensure your extraction is safe and painless. These procedures include: 

  • Simple Extractions: These procedures are primarily used for patients whose teeth aren’t impacted, deep-rooted, or hidden beneath the gum’s surface. The tooth is treated with anesthesia and then loosened using forceps, making it quick and painless. 
  • Surgical Extractions: Surgical extractions are used for infected, damaged, or impacted teeth located inside the gum and aren’t accessible through simple means. Through a surgical procedure, the area is treated with anesthetics, incisions are made along the gum tissue, and then the tooth is removed by being broken down and separated for better extraction.
