The last resort, when a tooth is no longer viable, is to remove or extract it.
Unfortunately, there may come a time when your tooth may be beyond repair. A tooth may need to be extracted if it becomes too decayed or has been damaged to extensively for the dentist to restore it. In order to extract the tooth, the dentist will numb the area using a local anaesthetic this will ensure that you will not feel any pain when the tooth is extracted. The dentist will then use forceps to grasp the tooth and remove it.
Here at Toothcare Dental we always aim to put your oral health, comfort and best interests first. If we suggest the removal of a tooth it is through a conservative decision – we will only extract a tooth is all other restorative measures fail or will not suffice.
Benefits of extractions
Extractions can protect surrounding teeth – If a tooth becomes infected it can put your entire smile at risk. If ignored an infection can progress and worsen, potentially infecting other teeth. You can easily protect surrounding healthy teeth by choosing a tooth extraction.
Extractions can relieve pain and discomfort – By removing your tooth with a tooth extraction, you will be able to remove the source of pain and discomfort, allowing you to improve your quality of life.
Extractions allow for additional prosthetics – Once the tooth has been extracted and the gum has healed, it is possible to look at a range of dental prosthetics to restore your smile. This could be dental implants, bridges or dentures.
