    Get An Experienced Dentist For Dental Extractions

    Posted on October 9th, 2015 by Dr. Peter Tomaselli

    Everybody should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup, even if they have a daily routine of brushing and flossing their teeth. Most people carry some type of dental insurance and this will help with the cost of a regular visit. Cleanings and preventative dentistry are vital to good oral health, so these appointments are essential. When you see your dentist, they can see how your teeth are and inform you if there is anything that needs attention. Bad teeth and decay can lead to illnesses and gum disease, so after the initial consultation they will determine if further treatments will be needed to fix cracked, decayed, or damaged teeth. Dental extractions will most likely be recommended if there is too much decay present on your teeth.

    It is important to have healthy teeth, because when a tooth gets infected, the infection can spread. This can be mild or severe, depending on how long the decay and infection has festered. While dental extractions are typically non-invasive, complications can arise under certain conditions. If your root is at an angle, if your tooth is abscessed, or if anything else is wrong that could cause severe infection or harm from having the procedure performed, then your dentist may recommend that you see an oral surgeon to have “problem teeth” extracted. It is essential to find a good dentist that you can trust who is experienced. An experienced dentist will be able to recognize whether they can get the problem tooth out easily, or if you will need to see a surgeon to have the tooth cut out.

    Reasons to Have a Tooth Pulled

    If you have a tooth that is broken from an accident, sensitive to hot and cold food or drink, painful, or shows serious signs of decay, then you may want to have it extracted. Schedule an appointment with your dentist today if you are experiencing any of these issues. If you have the problem checked out when you first notice that an issue is present, then your dentist may be able to save the tooth. If the problem is ignored, then you will probably reach the point where it will need to be extracted. No matter what the situation is on why you need to have a tooth pulled, your dentist will take great care in making sure that the procedure is done correctly and pain free. Once your tooth has been extracted the dentist will stitch or pack gauze in the hole that is left behind. They will then give you instructions for any aftercare that is needed.
