If possible, our first priority is to save, restore and repair your natural teeth. This is because they are essential to maintaining jawbone and mouth structure, as well as biting, chewing and speaking. However, there are times when extracting a tooth becomes necessary.
There are many reasons why it may become necessary to pull a tooth. The most common reason is that the tooth in question is just too damaged from decay or trauma to be saved. A few of the other common reasons for tooth extraction include:
Before beginning your procedure, Aurora family dentist will ensure that your tooth and the surrounding area is numb. Once the extraction procedure begins, you will feel some pressure, but you shouldn’t feel any pain. The tooth will be loosened, usually by being firmly rocked back and forth and then will be extracted.
Once the procedure is over, you will be provided with aftercare information to make sure you’re properly caring for the wound while it heals.
