Tooth extraction may be two of the most dreaded words you can hear from your dentist. Having a tooth or multiple teeth pulled is always the last resort at Orland Dental Care, and we take great care to ensure our patients experience the minimal discomfort possible.
There are many common reasons for extraction including:
- Severe Tooth Damage/Trauma
- Malpositioned/Non-functioning Teeth
- Orthodontic Treatment
- Extra Teeth
There are two types of extractions that are typically performed, simple and surgical. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible, usually under a local anesthetic. Surgical extractions are for teeth that cannot be accessed in the mouth, either because they have broken off at the gum line or they have not fully erupted. These extractions may require bone removal, removing and/or folding back all or part of the gum tissue and can be done with local anesthesia and/or conscious sedation.
Wisdom teeth removal is also a very common type of tooth extraction, and the dental professionals at Orland Dental Care specialize in the wisdom teeth removal procedures.
