Did you know that over half of adults get tooth extractions every year? These can be completed for many reasons that are cosmetic or preventative in nature. At Flora Dental, it is essential that we treat your dental health as soon as possible!
Do I Need an Extraction?
A tooth extraction is the removal of a permanent tooth from its corresponding tooth socket. Our first concern is to make the process as safe and painless as possible.
You may need a tooth extraction if you are experiencing:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Types of Extractions
Removal of a tooth above gum tissue
Requires the use of a manual forceps tool to grip the tooth
Removal of a tooth can involve a tooth above or below gum tissue
Requires the use of surgical instruments to make a tiny incision and remove the obstructed tooth with accuracy
Socket Site Preservation
Material will be placed in the space where the tooth was removed to protect the area from shrinking as the space heals.
