Extractions

Are you currently dealing with a tooth issue and think you might need extractions? If so, our emergency dentist near you can help.

Dental extractions are very common. Whenever they can, dentists try to preserve the teeth. There are some situations where this is not possible though.

If you think you need dental extractions, contact Dr. Vasudev at Dental Arts New Port Richey. Our dentist’s office near you offers dental extractions in New Port Richey, FL.

When Are Dental Extractions Needed?

If you are currently dealing with a tooth issue, an extraction might be the best option. Our dentist will attempt to save the tooth in these situations, but an extraction may be inevitable. You might need extraction in one of these situations:

  • Crowding. An extraction may be necessary if the teeth are too close to one another. Wisdom teeth can also warrant an extraction. Prior to getting braces, you may need to have several teeth extracted.
  • Dental abscess. A dental abscess occurs when the tooth root and tissue become infected. A root canal can fix this problem, but an extraction may be done instead if the roots are damaged.
  • Tooth decay or damage. Tooth decay and damage can sometimes be resolved with a filling or another fix. In some cases, the damage may be beyond repair. In this case, an extraction is needed.

When you schedule an appointment with our dentist, your options will be discussed. There is not a one-size-fits-all answer for all dental issues. Our dentist’s best judgment will be used to determine the best solution.

What Happens When a Tooth is Extracted?

If you haven’t had a tooth extracted before, you might feel anxious about the procedure. You should know what to expect. Keep in mind that our dentist frequently performs extractions.

First, you will be given a local anesthetic. After that, some of the gum and bone tissue is removed.

The tooth is then removed. This can be done in one piece or in multiple pieces, depending on the situation.

Our dentist at Dental Arts New Port Richey will give you after-care information so the site can heal properly. If you have concerns, call Dr. Vasudev.
