Introduction to Tooth Removal (Extraction)
Teeth Extraction– If a tooth is severely infected or decayed, it may need to be removed if the future health of that tooth is hopeless and cannot be restored. Once a tooth is removed there are options to fill the space, bridges, dentures or implants.
Wisdom teeth extraction Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in. When they align properly, and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Wisdom teeth can be impacted, which means they have nowhere to grow. Even though impacted wisdom teeth are not visible, they can cause a number of problems, including pain in the back of the jaw. In these cases, they should be removed. Removal when you are younger is recommended since the roots are not fully formed and the bone surrounding the impacted tooth is less rigid, making surgery less traumatic.
Oral Sedation is a prescription medication that you can take one hour prior to treatment. For many patients the prospect of having a tooth removed can be traumatic. With the help of medication we can make the patient feel calmer and make the procedure easier to tolerate. Ask your dentist if you are interested in this.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum tissue. This happens when bacteria increases in mass to form a paste-like substance called plaque. Accumulation of plaque and tartar covering the teeth are the beginning stages of periodontal diseases. Tartar is long standing plaque that has absorbed calcium on the tooth surface. Early detection and treatment are your best defense. The existence of bone destruction under the gums cannot be visually detected. This makes it especially important to visit your hygienist regularly.
