Pulling a tooth may be necessary if severe damage or infection has occurred. Dr. Ally takes special care to ensure that the process is as comfortable as possible, including numbing the area and offering sedation if needed.
Why Does My Tooth Need to be Pulled?
Some of the reasons why a tooth may need to be pulled include:
- Non-restorable teeth
- Severe gum disease
- Full mouth rehabilitation
- Severe fractures, cavities, or enamel damage
- Chronic pain
We also provide some wisdom tooth extractions here in our office. However, our primary goal is to always restore the tooth as early as possible, so that the extraction can be avoided in the first place.
After the Extraction
Dr. Ally will provide you with home care instructions and any necessary medication needed to manage discomfort during your recovery. The next step is to plan on replacing your missing tooth as soon as possible.
This will prevent the other teeth from drifting out of place, which would impact the function and appearance of your entire smile. Some of the types of tooth replacement options that we provide include bridges, partial dentures, and implant restorations.
