New Port Richey Tooth Extractions
Highly Qualified Tooth Removal Made as Comfortable as Possible
Are you experiencing significant aching or inflammation in your mouth? Our professional staff at A Family Dentist in New Port Richey can help you to determine if a tooth extraction may be necessary. Some teeth require extraction because they are severely decayed, and others may exhibit periodontal disease or be broken in an irreparable way. Some teeth need to be removed to prepare for an advanced orthodontic procedure, or because they are poorly positioned or impacted.
It is important to bear in mind that a single removal may lead to problems with chewing, trouble with the jaw joint, or shifting teeth. To avoid unnecessary complications, our talented dental team will always advocate for the proper course of treatment, which sometimes includes alternatives to extraction.
Contact us immediately at (727) 645-0766 if you are experiencing tooth pain.
The Process for Tooth Extraction
When our experienced dentist in New Port Richey determines that tooth extractions are necessary, we do our utmost to keep discomfort to the very minimum.
These are the common components of tooth extraction:
- The targeted tooth, jawbone, and gums will be numbed with a local anesthetic
- The tooth is rocked in order to widen the socket for removal, causing you to feel slight pressure
- In some cases when a tooth is too firmly anchored, it is cut into sections for individual removal
The anesthetic should prevent you from feeling pain, but you may still feel a sensation of pressure. If you do experience any pain during your extraction, let our dentist know immediately. We understand that dental anxiety can keep some people from pursuing proper oral health. You will receive individualized and focused attention during your visit. We strive to ensure as pleasant an experience as possible during your tooth extraction in New Port Richey.
