Tooth Extraction in Winter Haven, Lake Wales, Haines City & Neighboring Areas
Sometimes having a tooth extraction can be necessary not only for your appearance, but also for your health. The key is to have a gentle dentist from Dental Associates perform the procedure. An infection can cause sweats, chills, vomiting, fever and nausea and can require a tooth to be pulled. For other people, it is the aesthetic appeal that prompts them to have a tooth extraction done. If your teeth don’t respond well to treatment or you find them unattractive, an extraction with a dental implant or functional bridge may be the remedy. A tooth extraction is made much less painful and traumatic, through advances in modern dental techniques and medical technology. There are even some instances when a chipped, broken or otherwise damaged tooth doesn’t need to be extracted and can be fixed with veneers, crowns and/or fillings.
Here are some of the reasons our dentists would recommend a tooth extraction:
- Stubborn wisdom or baby teeth
- Abscessed tooth
- A traumatic tooth injury
- Severe tooth decay or discoloration
Your abscessed tooth will breed an infection in or around the teeth root which may or may not be painful. It occurs when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, dies and becomes very inflamed if left untreated. The most common symptom of an abscessed tooth is an ache of the bone near the tooth. If you suspect you have an abscessed tooth, see an endodontist who specializes in the treatment of infected teeth and pulp.
