Tooth Extractions

What

What are Tooth Extractions

​​Tooth extractions, also known as dental extractions or exodontia, involve the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure may be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced periodontal disease, overcrowding, trauma, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

Why

Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction?

There are several reasons why a tooth extraction may be recommended. One common reason is severe tooth decay that has damaged the tooth beyond repair. Additionally, impacted wisdom teeth, which cannot erupt properly through the gum line, often require extraction to prevent infection or misalignment. Tooth extractions may also be necessary to address overcrowding in the mouth or remove teeth damaged due to trauma.

Educate

During a tooth extraction, the dentist will first administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Sometimes, sedation may help the patient relax during the procedure. Once the area is numb, the dentist gently uses specialized instruments to loosen the tooth from its socket. Depending on the tooth’s condition and location, the extraction process may vary in complexity. After the tooth is removed, the dentist will provide instructions for post-operative care to promote healing and prevent complications.

This modern and updated dental facility …. the team of doctors and all the frontline employees are AMAZING!! From the time you walk into the office, you can feel the calmness and ambiance which helps to calm your nerves ……. And then there is Daisy (like the flower …. joyful; always smiling); She is very personable; professional and always willing to accommodate your busy schedule. Appointments are always on time. Follow-ups are always on point. Daisy never misses a beat. Dr. Brody and his team of doctors, hygienists and dental assistants are some of the most professional that I have met so far. It should be noted that prior to this … I was terrified of going to the dentist. Dr. Brody is patient and soft-spoken and takes the time to explain all the options without forcing you towards his preference or for financial gain. I just completed an implant and, what would have been a very traumatic experience for me, turned out to be a great experience. I have been with this dentist for 6 years and I have my entire family using this dental service. If you are looking for professional; friendly; passionate and caring ……. Check out them out … you won’t regret the decision!
