Tooth Extraction in Altoona, IA | (855) 263-4605

 

Simply put, an extraction is the removal of a tooth. Usually, it is advisable to retain your natural teeth as long as possible. However, if a tooth is damaged or infected beyond repair, it should be removed to avoid spreading infection to other areas of your mouth and putting you at risk for serious health problems. Extractions are usually reserved only for cases in which no other treatment option will cure the infection or problem. Toothaches, decay and wisdom teeth can create dental pain on a sudden and unexpected basis, sometimes requiring emergency tooth extraction.

Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. 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.

There are two forms of extractions: simple and surgical. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that can be seen in the mouth and that do not require sectioning the tooth or incising the gum tissue for removal. These extractions are performed on teeth that must be removed due to extensive decay or injury, or even orthodontic treatment, and are usually performed under a local anesthetic. During this procedure, the doctor will grasp the tooth with forceps and loosen it by moving the instrument back and forth until the supporting structures widen enough to allow the removal of the tooth.

Surgical extractions are performed on teeth that have broken off at the gum line, have not yet come in, or those that cannot be easily extracted. To remove the tooth, the doctor will have to cut and pull back the gums, which allows access to the area. This is necessary for visibility, so that we can see the tooth that needs to be removed. Surgical extractions are usually performed under local anesthesia but a general anesthesia is sometimes preferred, especially for wisdom teeth extractions. Call now to find a dentist nearby 50009.
