<b>What is a Tooth Extraction?</b>
An extraction is a type of simple oral surgery that involves removing a tooth completely from the mouth. The procedure is very easy and can be quickly done in the office at your own convenience. Our goal here at the Boutqiue for Cosmetic Dentistry is to provide you with this level of care in a relaxed manner. We want the extraction process to be as painless and quick as possible for you.
<b>Why would someone need a Tooth Extraction?</b>
The reason a patient coming into our office would require an extraction may be due to a variety of factors. For example, you might find that you have a broken, cracked or fractured tooth and need to have it completely removed. Likewise, you might need to have an impacted wisdom tooth taken out. There are many benefits to having a problem tooth removed as soon as possible.
<b>What makes someone a candidate for an Extraction?</b>
The best thing for you to do is to come in for an exam with Dr. Azy. The doctor will examine your teeth to see if and when one may need to be removed. We will then work with you to find solutions to replace the tooth, if this is possible. Our goal is to improve your smile in a way that is comfortable and affordable for you.
<b>What happens during a typical Extraction?</b>
The first step is to have sedation administered so that the procedure is comfortable for you. The next step involves removing the tooth using special tools and instruments. You may need sutures depending on the area of the gums where the tooth was removed. Once you have the tooth taken out, we’ll provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure that the surgical site heals properly after you’ve returned home. You will find that if the tooth was painful before having it removed, it finally feels better and is no longer painful.
