Dentists and dental professionals work to help you keep your natural teeth. However, sometimes that’s just not going to happen. Teeth can become so badly damaged by injury, disease or decay that extraction is the best choice. Sometimes teeth can be overcrowded to a point to where removing one or more teeth is necessary to keep the other teeth healthy. Other times, an emergency tooth extraction near you is the only available option. Tooth extraction can be the most cost-effective solution to a compromised tooth at times.
Your dentist at Bella Via Dental in the Eastmark community in East Mesa, AZ can remove a troublesome tooth in a fairly rapid painless procedure, as long as the tooth in question has emerged fully from the gums. Teeth that need removal but haven’t erupted from the gums and teeth that are broken off at the gumline require a more complex procedure.
A simple extraction’s process is straightforward. The tooth and gums are numbed and a tool called an elevator loosens up the tooth, then dental forceps pull it free. The area is packed with gauze and complete.
In a surgical extraction, you may get both local and intravenous anesthesia. You will remain conscious, relaxed and aware. The doctor at Bella Via Dental in Eastmark in East Mesa will make a small cut into your gum to get to the tooth. Sometimes a tooth will need to be sectioned into smaller pieces. This is more common with broken teeth or wisdom teeth.
