Tooth Extraction

Reasons For Tooth Extraction

There are times when a tooth is not restorable. Considerable decay due to persistent disregard or trauma that brings about the inadvertent fracture of the tooth is two principal causes for a tooth to be considered non-salvageable. There are equally many other causes. Eventually, under these situations, your dental practitioner may suggest the extraction or removal of these teeth as a way of enhancing the overall condition of your teeth’s health.

After careful thought, your dental practitioner will decide if the extraction will be challenging, requiring the skillset of an oral maxillofacial surgeon or routine, in such a scenario, the removal can happen within the confines of the dentist office. Both Dr. Demeyer and Dr. Gernhofer have finished general practice residencies that had a substantial emphasis on the analysis and management of oral surgical treatment cases, providing them with the required skillset to execute routine extractions in a safe and relaxed environment.

After a cautious and thoughtful overview of the patient’s medical and dental record, the routine extraction of a tooth utilizing local anesthesia is a standard process performed within the dentist’s office. Upon completion of the task, you’ll be released with post-operative guidelines and medicine (if required) to help you manage any swelling or pain. Although not necessary, you might wish to have a friend offer you transport to and from the dental office on this visit. Typically, you will be requested to come back to the dental office within 24 hours following the extraction for a post-operative follow-up exam to make sure that the extraction site is healing correctly.
