When you have a painful, severely infected, or damaged tooth that can't be restored by any means, tooth extraction might be the only option. At Vosh Dental, our dentists are specialized in tooth extractions. If you are experiencing a toothache, decay, or any other oral issue that requires tooth extraction, visit our office for a consultation with our expert dentists.
What Is Teeth Extraction?
Tooth extraction is the process of removing one or more teeth from their dental sockets.
Why Do Teeth Need Extraction?
Tooth extraction is an oral surgical procedure performed when a tooth has suffered damage or has been decayed. The treatment involves the removal of the entire tooth and its root. Teeth need extraction when the following issues are present:
- Tooth decay
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Severe toothache and discomfort
- Trauma and injury to the mouth
- Failed root canal treatments
- Malocclusion and overcrowded teeth in the mouth
At Vosh Dental, our Dentists in Fort Worth, TX are trained and licensed to perform tooth extractions and other dental procedures. We use modern technology to provide the best services to our patients. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation to ensure that our patients feel comfortable during the treatment. Our dentists will ensure your safety during the procedure and take all necessary measures to ensure that you are well-protected during the tooth extraction process.
What Happens During a Tooth Extraction?
When you arrive at our office for your procedure, our team will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. For this reason, we may offer you nitrous oxide sedation to reduce your anxiety and numb the area of your mouth where the tooth needs to be extracted. We have noise-canceling headphones, heated neck pillows, and tv’s on the ceiling to help make the experience more spa-like. Once the area becomes numb, we will extract the tooth in one piece by gently gripping it and pulling it out. If the tooth is impacted, extremely damaged, or beneath the gum line, we may section it into portions before extracting it. After the extraction process is completed, we will provide you with aftercare instructions, including how to care for your mouth after a tooth extraction and what medications to take in case of any discomfort.
What Are the Different Types of Tooth Extractions?
In this method, we will completely remove the tooth from its socket. This procedure is performed on a healthy tooth that is visible above your gums and has erupted through them. It is typically used for teeth that have completely erupted and do not require any removal of bone tissue or sectioning of the tooth.
A surgical extraction is used when there is decay inside the cavity or when there are complications with the bone around the tooth that prevents us from completely removing it. Surgical extractions are also used for wisdom teeth removal when they are impacted below the gum line. The procedure involves making a small incision in your gums to reach the impacted tooth and pulling it out using forceps or other dental instruments.
