Dental Tooth Extractions at Two Rivers Family Dentistry
If you have a broken tooth, our priority at Two Rivers Family Dentistry is to repair and restore your tooth to full health if at all possible. However, if the tooth is too damaged for a repair to be effective, then a tooth extraction, also known as exodontia, may just be the best solution.
Some situations that can lead to the need for a tooth to be pulled include:
Tooth Extraction Types
This is performed when the tooth is visible and easily accessible to the dentist and typically only requires the use of a local anesthetic. However, sedation and anti-anxiety medications can be administered to patients who feel anxious about the procedure.
If a tooth is NOT visible and accessible, then your dentist will need to perform a surgical extraction. For example, broken teeth or teeth that never rose above the gum line might require surgical extraction. This type of procedure sometimes requires bone removal and the lifting or folding of the gum tissue while extracting the tooth. Local anesthesia and/or conscious sedation can be used for surgical extractions.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Impacted teeth can sometimes lead to infection, tooth decay, gum disease, or even interference with your bite. We can help patients avoid these issues by extracting wisdom teeth before they are fully developed. Wisdom teeth are also sometimes extracted to make room for orthodontic treatments.
No matter why you need a tooth extracted, you can count on the team at Two Rivers Family Dentistry to make the process as easy and pain-free as possible.
