At Quincy Dentists we offer specialized services in tooth extraction for a variety of scenarios. Teeth can be extracted because of severe decay, or maybe something major like periodontal disease. Maybe the tooth is broken in a way that goes beyond reparation.
Teeth positioning could also be a factor. You could also simply need your wisdom teeth pulled.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health beyond appearance and aesthetics. Your dentist at Quincy Dentists will thoroughly discuss options and alternatives to tooth extraction as well as replacement of your extracted tooth.
Since case to case may vary, there are different techniques to tooth extraction, each of which Quincy Dentists can effectively perform. Your dentist will numb your gums, the tooth itself, as well as your jawbone with local anesthetic, due to a significant amount of pressure. This pressure comes from rocking the tooth back and forth in order to prime the socket for removal. The pressure comes without pain due to the anesthetic.
Difficult teeth may require sectioning, which basically entails cutting the tooth into smaller, more manageable portions. From there, we’ll extract the tooth as we normally would.
We’ll make sure that blood clots form at the site of you missing tooth, which will commence your healing process. We’ll perform the proper, conscientious procedures and instruct you further on how to take care of your mouth after your tooth extraction in Quincy, MA.
When the procedure is finalized, you may experience pain and swelling. You will be able to commence your normal, healthy oral health within 24 hours, which will help promote healing.
