Tooth Extractions

» 17 April 2022 » In Dallas Texas Dentist » Comments Off on Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are a dental service widely used in dentistry.  A tooth extraction is a definitive solution for a problem related to a broken or dental extractioninfected tooth.  When a tooth is extracted and removed from the mouth, typically the tooth related problem has been solved.  Extractions many times can be avoided all together.  A dental exam by a dentist must be completed first to establish a diagnosis.  There may be other options available such as a root canal, crown or filling. After a dental extraction, a dental implant may be placed or possibly a bridge or a denture.

Extractions can be performed by a general dentist or by an oral surgeon.  Local anesthetic can be used or at times a patient may sedated for an extraction.  Cost can vary and will depend on the type of an extraction category a tooth may be in. Front teeth are usually less complicated than back molars due to the fact that molars have more root structure.  Molars as well as premolars or bicuspid teeth typically have at least two roots.  Some molars may have three or even four or more roots.

Reasons for a tooth extraction are many and varied.  Many times an extraction is the only treatment choice due to the fact that the tooth is too badly infected or of limited remaining tooth structure.  After an extraction, the healing period is usually uneventful and within several weeks the area is healed. At that time the patient may want to discuss replacement of the missing teeth.  Several options are available to replace missing teeth. Implants, bridges, partial dentures are several options.
