If you have a severely decayed, broken, or dead tooth, you may be in need of a tooth extraction to prevent infection or further damage to your other teeth. Schedule an appointment at Dental 32 today.
Extractions are the removal of teeth and root structures from the jaw. A broken or severely decayed tooth can be painful and can develop into a serious infection if left untreated. Dr. Meyer will examine the tooth and determine whether it is restorable or not. If an extraction is needed, the tooth and gums will be numbed, and the tooth removed.
The extraction may be simple, or surgical, depending on if the tooth easily comes out in one piece, or is needed to be sectioned and removed in multiple pieces. At the end of the procedure, Dr. Meyer and the assistant will discuss with you how to care for the extraction site and answer any questions you may have.
