Teeth Extractions North Potomac, MD
Do you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth? Wisdom teeth causing you problems? Searching for teeth extractions in North Potomac, MD? Here at Potomac Crown Dentistry our doctors know how important it is to preserve your natural teeth that’s why teeth extractions are the last option for treatment recommended. Your teeth not only make your smile look great, but they also provide functionality to your mouth so you can speak, eat, etc., however, sometimes, a tooth or teeth has to be removed
There are four main reasons why tooth extractions would be recommended:
- Severe decay – not even a root canal treatment would save the tooth, so removing the tooth would stop the infection or decay from spreading to adjacent teeth or the tooth has already died
- Injury or trauma – accidents can happen at any time, and if a tooth has been severely fractured or broken beyond any restorative treatment it is recommended that the tooth is extracted
- Orthodontics – teeth can be removed as part of an orthodontic treatment if there are overcrowding, alignment or spacing issues
- Wisdom teeth – wisdom teeth are removed if they are causing pain or discomfort or if they have become impacted in the gums or there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate them without misaligning the other teeth
Most extraction procedures are fast, painless and minimally invasive. The tooth or molar have to be pulled out of its socket, using special pliers to rock the tooth out of its place. Local anesthesia will be used to make you comfortable and the procedure pain-free. If a more complicated extraction is required because of the position of the tooth or because the tooth has to be broken in pieces before being extracted, a surgical incision will be needed to free the tooth and remove it, then sutures will be needed to close the incision and healing can take a few days more.
