If you are facing a tooth extraction, it can feel very overwhelming. But, did you know that a tooth extraction is a very standard dental procedure?
An extraction means to have a tooth taken out, typically due to infection, injury, or crowding. If you need a tooth extracted, a dental specialist will initially numb the region to reduce any pain. During the extraction, your dental specialist will guide you throughout the process as well as a routine to follow after the extraction.
When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
For the most part, you can fix a broken tooth that is damaged by decay with a filling, crown, or similar types of treatments. However, when tooth decay is beyond repair, your dental specialist will often suggest extraction. Some of those reasons include:
- Decay Or infection has entered deep into the tooth
- Injury beyond cosmetic repair
- There is insufficient space between your teeth
