When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Tooth extractions may be recommended for various reasons, including:

Severe Decay

When a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be restored with fillings or other dental treatments, extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth, which are unable to fully erupt due to lack of space or improper alignment, may cause pain, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth, necessitating extraction.

Orthodontic Treatment

In some cases, tooth extractions may be required as part of orthodontic treatment to create space for proper tooth alignment and bite correction.

Trauma or Damage

Teeth that have been severely damaged due to trauma, such as fractures or breaks, may need to be extracted if they cannot be adequately restored.

The Tooth Extraction Process

During a tooth extraction, Dr. Trevino will take every precaution to ensure your comfort and safety. The process typically involves the following steps:

Evaluation

Dr. Trevino will examine your tooth and assess the need for extraction, taking into account factors such as the condition of the tooth, its location, and your overall oral health.

Anesthesia

Local anesthesia will be administered to numb the affected area and prevent pain during the extraction procedure. For more complex cases or anxious patients, sedation options may also be available.

Extraction

Using specialized dental instruments, Dr. Trevino will carefully remove the tooth from its socket in the jawbone, taking care to minimize trauma to surrounding tissues.

Aftercare

Following the extraction, Dr. Trevino will provide instructions for post-operative care, including pain management, oral hygiene, and dietary restrictions. It's essential to follow these instructions carefully to promote healing and prevent complications.

Recovery and Follow-Up

Most patients experience some discomfort and swelling following a tooth extraction, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. Dr. Trevino will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns or complications that may arise.
