Tooth Extraction 75080


Sometimes, a tooth is so badly damaged or broken that the only remaining choice is to have it removed. This is known as a tooth extraction 75080, and it goes without saying that it is something which is best avoided. You can generally avoid it for a long time by ensuring that you carry out good dental practices, as well as visiting the dentist regularly, but if it so happens that you do need a tooth extracted, it is best to go to someone you feel you can trust.

We have a long history of treating patients with care and respect, and you can be sure that we will be able to carry out your tooth extraction professionally and swiftly, and with the least possible pain. We also pride ourselves on being able to save your original teeth as far as it is possible. This might mean using many other dental procedures, ranging from crowns and bridges to implants, or whatever else might be necessary to save your teeth. However, from time to time it is necessary to extract a tooth.

You might need a tooth extraction for any of the following reasons:
  • To help with a crowded mouth.
  • To ensure that an infection does not spread any more.
  • To help curb the spread of gum disease in the mouth.
  • To make space for the installation of braces or other devices.

Whatever the underlying reason, a tooth extraction 75080 might seem frightening to you. However, we pride ourselves on making you feel as comfortable as possible, so that you do not need to be overly concerned with the procedure itself. Firstly, we will inject a local anaesthetic to numb the feeling in the affected area. If you are having several teeth removed, it might sometimes be the case that we use general anaesthetic instead. Then it is a case of cutting away the gum and bone covering the tooth, and then rocking it back and forth until it comes loose. Once it is removed, a blood clot will form in the socket. Sometimes it is necessary to place stitches at the end of the procedure too, in order to close the gum edges.

With tooth extraction, you might well be dreading the procedure, but the truth is that it can often be the single best way forward for a mouth which is struggling to retain its health. Although it is a serious operation, it is best to have it done when necessary, rather than go through further pain and suffering.

If you think you might need a tooth extracted, it is best to come to us first for an inspection and examination. We will be able to advise you of the best course of action - and if tooth extraction happens to be the way, we can provide that service in a friendly and professional manner which will not worry you too much. Get in touch today if you would like to know more about the process, or would like to get booked in for your own extraction.

★★★★★ What a great dentist office and staff they have at Dr Thompsons. I have avoided going to the dentist for a very long time which is a bad thing. After my 1st visit with Dr Thompson and his staff, I finally understood that it doesn't have to be a bad or scary thing to go to the dentist. Well, my years of neglecting my teeth meant that I needed major work done. Luckily, they offer a financing program that is allowing me to pay off the work that I had done with interest free monthly payments. If you've been looking for a dentist that will eliminate your fears, do great work and has a kind and friendly staff, make an appointment at Dr Fred Thompsons office. You can thank me later.
