Dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. There are many reasons for taking tooth extraction treatment such as tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure where restoration is impossible. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed in our clinic. We provide extraction treatment of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment. If your teeth are getting the following problems, our clinic is the right place to have tooth extraction:
Badly Decayed Non-Restorable Teeth
- Root Stumps
- Failed Root Canal Treated Teeth
- Impacted Teeth
- Fractured Teeth
- Periodontal Weak Teeth
Sometimes toothache can be so severe or a tooth so broken down, that you may want just to rush to your dentist and have the tooth extraction process done. Most of the times it is the wisdom teeth that cause problems and so need the removal treatment.
Sometimes the wisdom teeth can be pulled by the dentists, although in most cases they need to be cut out by a qualified dental surgeon. When the time comes to have your wisdom teeth extracted, you'll need to go to an dental surgeon and have a consultation first.
During your consultation from the dental clinic, your dentist takes a few x-rays that will let the surgeon know how bad your wisdom teeth are. The surgeon will go over the result process, take a look at your teeth, and then tell treatment options you have. If he is going for a process like removal treatment for your teeth, you'll have the option of using local anesthesia or going with IV sedation. A removal treatment with IV sedation is the preferred way to have wisdom teeth extracted, as you'll be so relaxed you won't know how the whole teeth extraction process is going on. If you decide to just use local anesthesia, which is numbing, you'll be fully aware of the extraction procedure.
