Reasons for Extracting a Tooth
While a tooth extraction is always a last resort, sometimes it may be the best treatment option. A tooth that has been badly injured, extensively damaged, broken, or chipped and simply cannot be saved, may need to be extracted. If there is severe tooth decay that cannot be repaired, advanced periodontal disease, or a tooth is badly positioned in the mouth and should be removed to undertake other dental procedures like orthodontic treatment, it may need to be extracted.
What is the process of a tooth extraction?
A tooth extraction is a dental procedure during which your tooth is completely removed from its socket. First, a radiographic examination (x-ray) will be taken to assess the position of the tooth roots and the condition of the surrounding bone. A thorough medical and drug history exam will also be conducted in order to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Usually, a tooth extraction is carried out with local anesthesia, but other sedatives can also be administered when necessary. Whatever anesthesia or sedatives are used, we are committed to ensuring that you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the entire procedure. Once you are comfortable and frozen, our dentist will delicately remove your tooth while being careful not to damage the bone that surrounds it.
If you need an emergency tooth extraction, West Airdrie Dental offers a number of tooth replacement options, including dental implants and dental bridges, that can restore your teeth with results that look and feel natural.
