Restoring your natural teeth is always a top goal, and there are many ways to restore a compromised tooth. However, there are also situations in which a tooth is simply beyond repair or it poses a threat to your overall oral health. In such cases, a tooth extraction may be needed.
You can be confident that Dr. Tejal Kakade is highly skilled when it comes to removing a tooth. We use advanced techniques that reduce pain and conserve as much healthy tissue and bone as possible. In addition, our Carrollton office is stocked with a full menu of relaxing amenities as well as sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease during your tooth extraction.
What warrants the removal of a permanent tooth? There are a variety of circumstances that demand a tooth extraction, including the following:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Prior to orthodontic correction
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Impacted teeth
For your added convenience, Dr. Tejal Kakade also offers tooth replacement for missing teeth. Our dentists are qualified to provide dental implants, dentures and bridges if needed. When appropriate, we encourage patients to replace an extracted tooth. Beyond poor aesthetics, missing teeth can cause misalignment, compromised chewing function and jaw bone atrophy.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The most common extraction procedure for adults involves the wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth represent the final set of molars to emerge, typically in the late teens to early twenties. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth complications are very common. Due to lack of jaw space, the wisdom teeth tend to grow in sideways, partially erupt or get impacted below the gum line. These are key reasons to remove these third molars before further harm is caused. Rest assured that this is a simple, straightforward oral surgery that involves minimal downtime for most patients.
Tips for Better Recovery
After your tooth extraction procedure, it will be important to follow your dentist’s post-operative instructions at home to facilitate a smooth and comfortable healing process. This will include a soft-foods diet, carefully keeping the extraction site clean and avoiding things like smoking, rinsing, spitting or using a straw. Don’t forget to ask a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment.
If you need tooth extraction or wisdom teeth removal in Carrollton, trust your smile to the best. Dr. Tejal Kakade can exceed your expectations in family dental care, even when it involves removing a natural tooth. Call us today to schedule your appointment or learn about our financing options.
