Tooth Extraction

Overview

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we offer tooth extraction services, a dental technique involving the removal of a tooth from its position within the jawbone socket. This procedure is usually recommended for teeth that are extensively harmed, decayed, infected, impacted, or contributing to various dental concerns. Our skilled team handles two main types of tooth extraction: simple extraction and surgical extraction, with the choice determined by the intricacy of each individual case.

Reason of Tooth Extraction

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of maintaining optimal oral health. Our team is committed to providing comprehensive dental care, including various extraction procedures when necessary.

  1. Severe Decay or Damage: At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we recognize that teeth suffering from extensive decay, fractures, or irreparable damage may require extraction. Our goal is to prevent further harm or infection and ensure your oral well-being.
  2. Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can pose challenges when they become impacted due to space constraints or misalignment. Our experienced professionals at Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry are skilled in addressing impacted wisdom teeth, alleviating pain, preventing infection, and safeguarding neighboring teeth through extraction.
  3. Infection or Abscess: In cases where tooth infections are severe and conventional treatments like root canal therapy or antibiotics prove ineffective, an extraction might be the best course of action. Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry is dedicated to eradicating infections, ensuring your comfort, and preventing any potential spread.
  4. Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease can lead to tooth loosening and loss. In situations where the disease has progressed significantly, extraction could be recommended by our experts at Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry. This step aids in arresting disease progression and maintaining your oral health.
  5. Orthodontic Treatment: As part of orthodontic care, tooth extraction may be essential to facilitate proper teeth alignment and resolve overcrowding. Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry orthodontic expertise ensures that your treatment plan is tailored to your needs, enhancing your smile and oral function.

At Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, we prioritize your oral health and well-being. Our dedicated team is here to guide you through any necessary extractions with utmost care and expertise.

Procedure Practise

Introducing Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry, where the tooth extraction process is tailored to individual circumstances and the specific type of extraction required. Here’s a comprehensive outline of the procedure:

  1. Initial Assessment and X-rays: Prior to commencing a tooth extraction, our skilled dentists at Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry will conduct a thorough evaluation of your dental health. X-rays will be taken to assess the tooth’s condition, its placement, and the surrounding structures, forming the basis of a personalized treatment plan.
  2. Local Anesthetic Administration: Ensuring a comfortable and pain-free procedure is paramount. Our experienced team will administer local anesthesia to numb the area surrounding the tooth. In instances where needed, sedation or general anesthesia options are available, particularly for surgical extractions or for patients who experience dental anxiety.
  3. Extraction Techniques: Simple Extraction: In cases of straightforward extractions, our dentists utilize a specialized tool called an elevator to gently loosen the tooth before using precise forceps to delicately extract it from its socket.
  4. Surgical Extraction: When dealing with complex situations like impacted teeth, severe decay, or challenging accessibility, a surgical extraction may be necessary. This advanced approach might involve creating a small incision in the gum tissue, and in certain instances, removing a small portion of the bone to facilitate the tooth’s safe removal. If needed, the tooth can be divided into smaller sections to simplify the extraction process.
  5. Socket Care and Suturing: Following the successful extraction, our attentive team will meticulously clean the socket area and may apply a gauze pad to manage any bleeding. In specific cases, dissolvable stitches might be employed to ensure proper wound closure and healing.
  6. Post-Extraction Guidelines: Airport Bovaird Family Dentistry is committed to your oral health journey. Our dentists will provide you with comprehensive post-extraction instructions, covering pain management strategies, oral hygiene recommendations, dietary restrictions, and scheduled follow-up appointments. Your well-being and recovery are our top priorities.
