Tooth Extractions in Crowley
Removal of Decaying or Damaged Teeth
If you have recently been in an accident or injured your mouth, you may have damaged teeth and need to have them removed. Or perhaps you were not aware that a tooth had a cavity and now the decay has spread. Whatever the case may be which has led you to need a tooth extraction, our team at Stone Oak Family Dental is here for you. The thought of having a tooth pulled may be slightly worrying to you but our Crowley dentists can put your mind at ease.
Understanding the Tooth Extraction Process
Essentially, the process of extracting a tooth is removing it from the socket. Depending on how broken or damaged the tooth is, it may be extracted all at once or in pieces. We use advanced technology which helps you to experience minimal discomfort during the tooth extraction process. The first step will typically be a local anesthetic or another type of sedation if you are especially anxious about the extraction. After your mouth is numb, the Crowley dentist will carefully loosen the tooth and remove it.
Why Teeth Need to Be Extracted
There are many different reasons why you may need to have a tooth removed from your mouth. If you have too many teeth and need to make space, we may recommend extracting one tooth to solve crowding. More commonly, we complete extractions when there are fractures, decay, or infections.
The most common reasons for extractions include:
- Baby teeth not leaving room for permanent teeth
- Impacted or developing wisdom teeth
- Tooth has become infected
- Removal to fix crowding or spacing issues
- Decayed, damaged, or broken teeth
