Tooth Extractions in Boca Raton, FL
At Dental Care of Boca Raton, we will try to save and restore your natural tooth structure as much as possible. However, when a tooth is severely decayed or infected and cannot be repaired with a filling or other restorative dental treatment, tooth extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage to your oral health.
When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?
Severe tooth decay, impacted wisdom tooth, periodontal disease, and orthodontic treatment are some of the most common reasons for tooth extraction.
1. Severe Tooth Decay or Infection
2. Advanced Periodontal Disease
3. Impacted Wisdom Teeth
How Are Tooth Extractions Performed?
There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that can be easily seen in the mouth, while surgical extractions are used for teeth that are impacted or cannot be seen.
During a simple extraction, your dentist will use special tools to loosen the tooth and then remove it using dental forceps from its socket. For a surgical extraction, your dentist may need to make an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and then remove it. After the tooth is removed, your dentist will place gauze pads in the tooth socket to stop any bleeding and to help a clot to form.
After a Tooth Extraction
After your tooth extraction, it is essential to follow your dentist’s instructions for care. Aftercare instructions are important to help ensure a successful recovery and to reduce the risk of infection.
