Take a look.
Tooth Extraction: What Can I Expect?
For the most part, you’ll be numbed and sedated so you do not need to worry about experiencing any pain. Typically, a tooth extraction is necessary under three specific circumstances. They include:
- Not enough tooth structure. When there is not enough tooth, the dentist will not be able to grasp it with a traditional tooth pulling device.
- Teeth that have curved roots.
- Impacted teeth, including teeth that have not broken through the gum line.
If you are experiencing any of the above, then speak with a staff at the Madison, WI office for Door Creek Dental. We will schedule a tooth extraction procedure right away.
When a patient is experiencing any of the situations above, the dentist will need to break the tooth up into tiny pieces in order to extract them little by little. The tooth is cut up and removed in pieces.
Ultimately, if you are experiencing a serious infection or other problems with your teeth, it’s always wise to consult with a dentist. Do not attempt to extract a tooth on your own because you could end up making matters so much worse.
Call the Door Creek Dental office to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. We will set up a checkup and diagnose any potential problems that need to be corrected.
