We are open and taking all safety precautions as recommended by the CDC and ADA
At Pleasure Dental in Royse City, we believe the best teeth are healthy ones and that it is preferential to have natural teeth for as long as possible. However, sometimes, a situation arises when a tooth needs to be extracted for a patient’s health and comfort. When this occurs, you can rest assured that our qualified dentists can make the procedure as simple and painless as possible so that you can return to your normal activities.
When a tooth is extracted, it is permanently removed from the mouth. Extractions can occur for a broad range of reasons, but tend to be done when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to survive, or if it has become compacted. Extractions are performed under anesthetic. Patients shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
When you have an extraction done at Pleasure Dental, we use the latest techniques and technology to ensure your comfort. Our dentist will numb your mouth using a localized anesthetic and then remove the tooth using specialized pliers. Instead of removing the tooth right away, it needs to be loosened by rocking it back and forth so that the root becomes dislodged from the jawbone.
If you have a compacted tooth, our dentist will need to cut through your gums and potentially remove the tooth in pieces. This procedure is slightly longer but is once again painless. After extraction, the gums are stitched back together, and recommendations for aftercare are given to return you to optimal oral health and wellness.
There are often a couple of symptoms that can let you know when you might need an extraction, but only a dentist can decide when it is medically necessary. After all, extractions are meant to be a last resort when the tooth cannot be saved.
Most people experience severe pain within a tooth, as well as discomfort and swelling in the associated gum tissue. If a tooth is compacted, it won’t be able to emerge and can cause a painful bump. An overcrowded mouth also tends to be painful and is liable to cause crooked teeth and other discomforts.
