Dental tooth extractions are among the most common services offered at our Dallas dental clinic. If your tooth has been broken, chipped, or cracked, or damaged by decay, it may need to be extracted. In most cases, extraction is only recommended after all other avenues have been explored – such as fixing it with a filling, crown, or other type of treatment. As humans, we are incredibly hard on our teeth, using them every single day to bite, chew, and maintain mouth and jaw structure. When something happens to one or more of our teeth, it can be extremely painful and wreak havoc on our everyday lives. This is why it is Dr. Anup Naik’s top priority to help restore, save, and repair your natural teeth. Unfortunately, sometimes nothing else can be done and the tooth must be professionally extracted.
Prior to the tooth actually being extracted, Dr. Naik will take digital images of the tooth to determine the condition of the surrounding bone, position of the tooth’s roots, and overall structure. We believe in safe tooth extraction and will do everything we can to make sure this is the case. Once Dr. Naik has looked over the digital images, he may suggest a local anesthetic in order to make sure the patient is comfortable and the procedure is as pain-free as possible.
Reasons for Extraction
We have briefly discussed some of the top reasons for tooth extraction, but let’s go over them in a bit more detail:
- In the event your tooth is damaged beyond repair either by fracture, trauma, or a deep cavity
- In the event you have a sizable infection that cannot be resolved by root canal therapy, bone grafting, or any other procedure
- In the event you have teeth that are blocking other teeth from coming in
This could be extra teeth or baby teeth that have not fallen out
- In the event you need to get rid of a tooth that is crowding others
- In the event you have wisdom teeth that are decayed, infected, or causing pain
These are just a few of the most common reasons we perform extractions at our Las Colinas dental clinic. For more information on dental extractions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The majority of teeth can be removed with a simple extraction, which is basically when Dr. Naik loosens the tooth and then carefully removes it with forceps. This type of extraction usually requires a local anesthetic in order to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the entire process.
