Common Reasons Teeth Need to be Extracted
Dr. Puja will always discuss treatment options with you, and try to avoid extracting a tooth if he can.
But sometimes an extraction is the best option for your overall dental health. Here are some common reasons:
- Relief of toothache pain
- Severe tooth decay
- Broken teeth
- Advanced periodontal disease
What is the Treatment Like?
All our dental therapies, especially dental extractions, use local anaesthetics to ensure your comfort before the actual treatment begins. The quicker we can alleviate your symptoms, the better the care we can provide. This is why we work so hard to see you as soon as you arrive at our office. Prime Care patients know that we are dedicated to keeping them comfortable throughout their entire dental experience. We also offer you Penthrox to relax you. After the area is numbed, Dr. Puja removes the infected tooth and prescribes any necessary medications to ease the pain or clear up infections. Most people can return to work the following day, and the area is usually completely healed within 2 weeks.
What Happens After my Extraction?
Losing a tooth can affect the other teeth in your mouth, allowing them to shift out of place over time. Dr. Puja will discuss this with you prior to your extraction, and identify methods of tooth replacement prior to removing your tooth. This way you can have a clear plan in advance of having your tooth removed, and know exactly what to expect afterwards.
