When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

There are several circumstances under which tooth extraction may be necessary, including:

  • Severe Decay: When a tooth is too decayed to be saved by a filling or crown.
  • Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease may require the removal of a tooth to prevent further damage to surrounding teeth and bone.
  • Impacted Teeth: Teeth that are unable to emerge normally may need to be removed to prevent overcrowding and infection.
  • Preparation for Orthodontics: To make room for teeth to move into their correct positions.

Our Tooth Extraction Process

Consultation and Examination

Your tooth extraction journey begins with a thorough consultation and examination by Dr. Layton. We utilize advanced imaging technology to assess the condition of your tooth and determine the most appropriate course of action.

The Extraction Procedure

For the extraction, the area around the tooth is numbed to ensure you feel no pain during the procedure. Dr. Layton uses precise techniques to remove the tooth, minimizing the impact on surrounding tissues and ensuring a quicker recovery.

Aftercare and Recovery

After the extraction, we provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you recover quickly and comfortably. This includes tips on managing discomfort, preventing infection, and promoting healing.
