Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction For Patients Serving The Greater Tampa Bay Area

Nobody likes the idea of having their teeth pulled, but sometimes a tooth extraction is necessary to improve your health and appearance. A dental abscess, for example, can make you generally ill with nausea and vomiting, fever, chills and sweats — serious dental abscesses can even interfere with breathing. Some teeth are just not attractive and not likely to respond to treatment; today’s dentist can remove these teeth and replace them with more aesthetically pleasing and functional bridge, implant, or denture.

Dentists recommend tooth extractions sparingly, only when you have a tooth causing you pain, has the potential to make you sick, or stands in the way of an orthodontic treatment like braces.

Advances in medical technology and dental techniques have made tooth extraction less traumatic and painful. Your dentist will administer nitrous sedation, better known as “laughing gas,” to keep you calm or anesthesia so you sleep through the procedure. Your dentist and his team will work quickly to remove your tooth in a way that causes the least amount of pain and trauma possible. Your dentist or his team will provide you with a prescription for pain medicine and instructions on how to take care of the tooth extraction site. Common tooth extractions include wisdom teeth removal.

Do not hang onto that bad tooth that could ruin your smile or even make you ill — your dentist makes tooth extraction easy and painless.
