Tooth Extractions at Praxis Dental

Whether it’s due to an emergency or years of gum disease, removing a tooth is a straightforward solution that provides fast relief for infections, pain or part of your full mouth rehabilitation case.

If it isn’t possible to keep the tooth healthy or restore it back to its full function, an extraction is usually the best choice.

Will it Hurt?

Removing your tooth can provide pain relief for situations involving:

  • Abscesses
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Severe pain and swelling
  • Dental emergencies
  • Advanced periodontitis

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Impacted or partially-erupted wisdom teeth can cause pressure against adjacent teeth, leading to issues such as abscesses, cysts, crowding or damage to otherwise healthy tooth structures. If we feel that the teeth are susceptible to decay and infection, it may be best to remove them proactively.

During your wisdom tooth evaluation, we will take a full mouth X-ray that shows how the molars relate to the surrounding anatomical structures. With this information, we will be able to give you all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about your care.

Replacing Missing Teeth

Removing an infected or decayed tooth is only the first step toward creating a healthy oral environment. After a dental extraction, the open space can create an environment where other teeth begin to shift and bone shrinks away. We recommend filling the open space with a dental bridge or implant as soon as the extraction site has healed.
