Why Choose Amaze Dental for Tooth Extractions?

Reasons Why Tooth Extractions Are Necessary

We consider tooth extraction to be an absolute last resort, which means if we recommend one, it’s because there is a significant issue with your tooth that cannot be resolved with other dental services. We may suggest a tooth extraction in the following circumstances:

Keep in mind that teeth that have become severely damaged and cannot be saved through root canal therapy are also removed to prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the mouth.

The Process of Removing a Tooth

During your visit, we’ll make sure that you’re feeling comfortable and administer all local anesthesia as needed. If you’d prefer to be even more relaxed during the procedure, you can take advantage of our multiple sedation options.

After locating the tooth in question, we’ll use a dental elevator to gently remove the tooth from the periodontal ligament holding it in place. Then, we’ll use a pair of dental forceps to remove the tooth and ask you to bite down onto a gauze pad to reduce any bleeding. From there, we’ll break down exactly what you can expect over the next few days as your mouth starts to heal.

Before you leave, we may also recommend thinking about future tooth replacement options to make your smile complete again. This could include dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants.
