Tooth Extraction and Implants

Tooth extraction is the process of removing an entire tooth from its socket. Although dentistry always aims to keep a tooth and save it from damage, there are times extraction becomes necessary. A tooth may be a candidate for extraction when it is:

  • Badly damaged. A badly damaged tooth may need to be removed especially if most of its structure can no longer be saved. Causes of tooth damage include physical trauma from sports or accidents.  
  • Severely decayed. When a tooth is severely decayed, it’s also beyond repair. If the Oshawa dentist will not pull it out immediately, it will bring more risks to your remaining teeth and mouth.
  • Crowded. Some patients have crowded teeth that usually result in misalignment. To prepare for teeth correction, your dentist might suggest to remove a tooth and help the other teeth to shift properly.
  • Infected. Infection also develops within the tooth and sometimes patients know there’s an issue when it’s too late. This time, tooth extraction should be done to avoid serious dental pain.
  • Brings risk of infection. Aside from discomfort, an infected tooth could also pose a risk to the neighboring teeth so it needs to be removed.

Procedure

Here’s what you should expect during the tooth removal procedure. Your Oshawa dentist will first administer anesthesia surrounding the affected tooth to keep you relaxed during the treatment. He will then use his dental forceps to firmly grasp the tooth and gently remove it. Once the tooth is out of the socket, there will be a formation of a blood clot which is a good sign. You do not remove that and just keep the gauze your dentist has placed on it for protection.

The tooth extraction procedure has left stigma to most patients especially the young ones. However, with our team of skilled and compassionate practitioners and modern facility, we could guarantee your safety and comfort. Have our Oshawa dentist check up your teeth now!
