Tooth Extraction for Those in Tampa, Spring Hill, Winter Haven, Brandon & Neighboring Cities
If your Dental Associates of Florida dentist has recommended that you undergo a tooth extraction, there is no need to panic. This procedure is widely practiced by our dentists, and we work hard to ensure that you will be as comfortable as possible throughout the process. Making the treatment quick and painless is our job, and you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.
Sometimes, a tooth extraction will be required when a tooth repair is unsuccessful. While saving a tooth is our main objective when it comes to injury and infection, sometimes the injury or infection is beyond repair. When the pulp of the tooth is severely damaged, repairing the tooth might not be a viable option.
Although many would think that simple damage to the teeth is reason enough for a tooth extraction, there are actually many reasons that can be the cause for removal. These include:
- Deep-rooted infection
- The immune system becoming compromised, creating a risk for infection
- Gum disease
- Wisdom teeth impaction
Prior to the tooth extraction, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area surrounding the tooth needing removal. If you require multiple teeth to be pulled, he or she may use a stronger general anesthetic to ensure you do not feel pain and/or are asleep for the process. The pain after the procedure is usually short-lived and will benefit you in the long run. Future pain from your previous infection or injury will no longer exist, after the initial recovery time has lapsed. If you would like to replace your lost tooth, your dentist can recommend a solution that is best for you and your lifestyle. Dental implants may be advised to fill any single or multiple gaps, but partial or full dentures may be an option for you, if you have lost many or all of your teeth. Discussing your options with your dentist will be most beneficial, and you will ensure that your oral health does not suffer from the loss of teeth.
