The Benefits of Extraction

Pain Relief

Ultimately, maintaining a problematic tooth can sometimes do more harm than good, and the removal of such a tooth can significantly improve your overall oral health. Extraction can relieve severe dental pain caused by a damaged or infected tooth. This process eliminates the source of discomfort and helps you regain your oral comfort.

Infection Control

Infected teeth can lead to more significant oral health issues. By removing the infected tooth, you prevent the spread of infection to neighboring teeth or even into the jawbone.

Improved Oral Health

Keeping a problematic tooth can sometimes be more harmful than helpful. Removing it can improve your overall oral health and prevent complications down the road.

The Extraction Treatment Process

Assessment and X-rays

Your journey begins with a thorough examination of your tooth's condition. X-rays may be taken to assess the tooth's roots and plan the extraction properly. This step ensures that the procedure is precise and minimizes any potential complications.

Anesthesia and Preparation

Before the extraction, you'll receive local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring you are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. Your dentist will then carefully prepare the tooth and surrounding tissues for extraction.

Gentle Extraction

During this step, the dentist gently removes the tooth. You may feel some pressure, but you shouldn't experience pain. Once the tooth is out, the area will be cleaned and may require stitches to aid in the healing process.
