Wisdom Teeth Removal
A person may need a tooth extraction for several reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed or have advanced periodontal disease, while some teeth may have broken during an accident in a way that cannot be easily repaired. Other teeth may need to be removed to protect the jaw bone from impacted wisdom teeth. No matter the case, Dr. Garrett has been performing extractions for over a decade now and has the skill and experience to address any issues you may be facing. Instead of referring you to an oral surgeon, we do your extraction here, in our office. Learn more about our tooth extraction solutions and how we can get problem teeth out, so you can begin the journey to reaching a happy, healthy smile.
What You Can Expect from a Tooth Extraction
When you need to have a tooth extracted, Dr. Garrett will go over the entire procedure with you to ensure you are aware of the process about to take place. Once we have your approval, Dr. Garrett will numb the area so you do not feel the tooth being pulled. Once the tooth is professionally extracted, Dr. Garrett will give you ample instruction for caring for your newly removed tooth. A bit of bleeding will be expected, and over time you will notice a blood clot forming where your tooth once was.
Some Things to Consider
If you need to have a tooth extracted due to disease, trauma, or overcrowding, it is essential that you and your dentist devise a plan for filling in the extraction location. The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems with your chewing ability or jaw joint and can also cause your teeth to shift, which can have a significant impact on your dental health. Dr. Garrett will work with you to discuss the options available to effectively fill the extracted tooth’s area and get you back to having a full, beautiful smile once again.
