Gentle, Pain-free Treatment
There are many reasons a patient may need a tooth extraction. This includes if you have advanced gum disease, a serious tooth infection. Additionally, if your wisdom teeth are erupting improperly, an extraction will remove the issue. At My Dental Club, we offer gentle, pain-free extractions. We also provide restorative options once your gums heal after treatment.
Why Extractions Are Necessary
Common Reasons for Tooth Removal
The most common reason for tooth extractions is the improper growth of wisdom teeth. These third molars erupt during a patient’s late teens or early 20s. Extraction may be necessary if they are causing oral health problems as they grow in. Beyond this extractions are necessary to prepare for an orthodontic or surgical procedure, like a dental implant. Root canal treatment cannot work for all teeth. As a result, we extract A unrestorable infected tooth. If you are suffering from advanced gum disease (periodontitis), extraction may be the beginning of your restorative care.
Problematic Wisdom Teeth
Do I Need a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom teeth are the final four molars in our mouths, which typically erupt between the ages of 17-25. Wisdom teeth are a natural part of our growth. However many people do not have enough space in their mouths for this last set of molars. This means that wisdom teeth often grow improperly and become impacted (unable to fully erupt from the gum). They can cause overcrowding with the rest of your teeth. This can result in damage to your bite and force your teeth to shift. Wisdom teeth don’t always require extraction. If you notice that you are experiencing discomfort or a change in your bite as they erupt, schedule a consultation at My Dental Club.
Signs & Symptoms
Of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Impaction occurs when a wisdom tooth cannot fully erupt from the gums. The symptoms of impaction include redness, swelling around the tooth, jaw pain, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, or difficulty opening your mouth. If you notice these symptoms, call My Dental Club today to schedule a consultation and have one of our qualified dentists take a look to see if an extraction may be right for you.
What To Expect
The Tooth Extraction Process
When you come for extraction, our dentist will begin the process by cleaning and numbing your mouth. Then, a specialized tool called a dental elevator will aid to loosen the tooth in its socket. After this, the tooth is gently pulled out by its root. Finally, we clean and disinfect the area again and sutured shut if necessary. This process typically takes only about 5 minutes per tooth, and our advanced numbing agents and sedatives ensure that you feel no anxiety or discomfort throughout the entire process.
