No one wants to have a tooth extracted. You’ll do everything in your power to avoid it. Even your dentist will do the same. Every possible solution will be discussed before settling for an extraction.
But sometimes, a tooth extraction is the best possible treatment. We at Comfort Dental Centre Buderim only perform tooth extractions if it is best for you. We are after your best interests, hence we assure you of completely safe tooth extractions in our office.
Common Reasons For A Tooth Extraction
Bacteria in the mouth thrive on poor dental hygiene. Bacteria attack the tooth enamel forming cavities in the teeth. If detected early, your dentist can stop extraction through fillings, crowns, and other dental treatments. However further neglect may lead to an extraction.
The bacteria do not only attack the enamel. The damage can reach the pulp causing a dental abscess. There are a number of available solutions for this, depending on the severity of the situation, and tooth extraction is one.
Wisdom tooth problems.
The wisdom teeth or the third molars may be problematic. Impaction and gum flaps are some of the common issues for a wisdom tooth. Extraction is usually recommended for this.
Correcting crooked teeth and treating other bite defects through orthodontics sometimes requires a few sacrifices such as tooth extractions.
The Tooth Extraction Process
Before a tooth extraction commences, your dentist will first check into your medical history. This is the best time to tell your dentist if you are suffering from any medical condition. Because the process is invasive, you have the option to seek out a second opinion from an equally qualified practitioner.
Once that is settled, your dentist will take an X-ray of your mouth to determine the best way to extract the tooth. Most impacted wisdom teeth require a small incision in your gums before extraction.
Recovering from the extraction is nothing to worry about. Tooth sensitivity might be felt by some, but not all patients. Your dentist will closely monitor your recovery.
Tooth Replacement Options
After the extraction, the next thing you must consider is the replacement of your extracted tooth. This is important, otherwise you may experience difficulty that could develop into another issue in your mouth.
At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we have multiple tooth replacement options. Your dentist will recommend what would be the best for you depending on your case. Dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures are some of the options.
