Oral Surgery and Dental Extractions

More and more Americans are in need of dental extractions than ever before. If you are one of these many patients, it can be scary to think about having a tooth removed from your mouth. Not only do you need to think about the surgical procedure for removing your tooth – but you also need to think about how your tooth with be replaced after the fact.

If you have a tooth that is severely damaged, decayed or experiences trauma – an extraction may be your only option. During oral surgery your mouth with be completely numbed with anesthesia. If you are further concerned about pain or are exceptionally nervous at the dentist’s office, sedatives may also be available during treatment.

Once your mouth is completely numb and you are comfortable, your tooth will be quickly and safely removed. This is most often done on a tooth that has already emerged from the gums. However, in some instances, especially with wisdom teeth, the tooth may be cut away from below the gums. Pain is easily managed with dental extractions and you should not avoid treatment out of fear of pain. The most uncomfortable side effect of oral surgery is swelling and the inability to eat normally for several hours following treatment.

Additionally, after surgery you must consider what method will be used to replace your missing tooth. The most common corrective measures used include dentures, partials, a bridge or a dental implant. Contact our office today to learn which of these options is right for restoring your smile.
