Teeth Extractions In Glendale, AZ

Dental extractions sometimes cannot be avoided and become a necessary procedure. You may need a dental extraction due to tooth decay, damage or serious injury. You may need a dental extraction for the following reasons:

Crowded teeth: As children get older crowded teeth can become more of a problem, especially if you have all four of your wisdom teeth. Overlapping and crowded teeth may eventually cause bite problems, or problems with chewing. Dental extractions can prepare the mouth for orthodontic procedures like braces.

Infection: Decayed, damaged teeth can cause infection in the blood vessels of the tooth which can lead to serious pain or disease. Pulling the tooth that is causing the infection is the preferable option to long term pain or ongoing infection in the area.

Gum Disease: Periodontal disease affects the bones and tissues that make up and support the teeth. If the gum is very diseased it may not be able to hold onto the tooth, and chewing or biting may become increasingly painful.

There are two different dental extractions that are offered.  Simple and surgical.

A simple extraction is where dental tools are used to pull the teeth.  These procedures are done in the dentist’s office with local anesthesia.

A surgical extraction is performed when the tooth is impacted, meaning it is not accessible and is impacted under the gumline. An incision is required during surgical extraction so the tooth can be removed.

Healing from a dental extraction can be an easy process if you follow these steps:

Don’t smoke
Don’t drink through a straw
Don’t brush the gums where the tooth was extracted
East soft foods
Take an over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen before the anesthetic wears off.
