Why Might I Need a Tooth Extracted?
There are several reasons why it might be necessary to have one or more teeth extracted. Teeth can become badly damaged due to injury or disease and may not be salvageable, or they might need extracting due to lack of room in your jaw. This is often the case with wisdom teeth that try to erupt into a mouth that is simply too small to accommodate them.
Tooth Extraction Due to Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common reason for tooth extraction, as it can severely damage or loosen a tooth so it cannot be saved. In this case you will receive a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth is located, but we can supply a stronger sedation if you need more than one teeth removed or if you are nervous or anxious. The actual procedure to remove the tooth is generally very quick, and after it has been extracted you might have a few stitches. You’ll need to gently bite down on a clean piece of gauze immediately after the extraction to help stop the bleeding.
Once the extraction site has healed you can think about replacing the tooth, perhaps with an implant, bridge or denture. If the extraction site is in a highly visible area we can provide you with a temporary tooth until you can have it more permanently replaced.
