Getting a tooth removed can be an unsettling thought for patients, particularly if the tooth is permanent. However, tooth extraction does not have to be scary. Our dentist in Coral Springs care about our patients and understand that tooth removal can be necessary to improve your oral health and wellness. We strive to maintain a judgment-free office focused on your well-being.
Tooth extraction is considered a final resort when it comes to oral care, but it is often necessary for a variety of situations. For example, someone who is dealing with overcrowding or an impacted tooth will need to have teeth removed to alleviate pain and correct the bite. On the other hand, someone might also need a tooth taken out because it is infected, decayed, or too damaged to be repaired.
The most common symptom patients have is pain. When a tooth is damaged or trapped somewhere, it irritates the internal nerve or the surrounding gums. The irritation can cause swelling, difficulty eating, difficulty chewing, and even pain when trying to speak and complete basic activities.
If you’re unsure if you need an extraction, you can come to visit us for a general checkup. This is the first step in receiving treatment.
The first step to getting an extraction is to schedule an appointment with our oral surgeon. They will perform a thorough inspection of the tooth and the surrounding tissues to see if restorative treatments are possible. If they are not and the tooth must be removed for your health and well-being, then we can perform the extraction during the same appointment.
The procedure is quick and efficient, and your mouth will be numbed to prevent pain. You will be able to drive home afterward. Our office will give you aftercare instructions to help the extraction site heal properly.
If you need an extraction, contact our dental clinic and take advantage of our relaxing office, state-of-the-art equipment, and knowledgeable staff. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have regarding any dental procedures.
