EXTRACTIONS

 

A tooth extraction might be necessary when a tooth is damaged beyond practical repair. Teeth that are not well positioned or nonfunctional may also need to be extracted.

Broken, cracked, or extensively decayed teeth should probably be extracted. The conditions that warrant extraction are usually so extreme that regular reconstructive work (i.e. fillings, crowns, etc.) will not be effective. Sometimes extraction is easier and more cost effective than reconstruction.

Severe damage to the gums may also necessitate dental extraction. Advanced periodontal disease (gum disease) is cause by the improper care of teeth. As gum disease gets worse, the tooth loses the support of the surrounding bone and becomes loose. The gums can no longer hold it in place and extraction of the tooth is necessary.

Because the roots of your teeth are encased in your jawbone itself and held in place by ligaments under the gums, they cannot be simply “pulled.”they need to be rocked back and forth and rotated in order for them to become worked out of its protection of the jawbone and removed. You will, of course, be anesthetized before undergoing an extraction.

When undergoing an extraction with a “local” anesthetic, you might feel some pressure, but no pain during the procedure.
