As we grow up, our teeth grow with us. Baby teeth are lost through early childhood years into teenage years to make room for permanent teeth. Permanent teeth are designed to last us our whole adult lives, but that isn’t always the case.
Tooth extractions can become necessary for any number of reasons. When it becomes necessary for you, you can trust Corte Madera Dentist with the extraction process.
Dental Extraction Process
The thought of having a tooth pulled often causes patients unnecessary amounts of worry and concern. Our talented, capable staff have years of experience in helping patients feel comfortable and at ease during a tooth extraction.
Advances in dental treatments and technology have also made tooth extractions much easier and far more painless. When you need to have a tooth removed, you can expect great, attentive care from Corte Madera Dentist.
The extraction process begins with a numbing agent applied to the area around the tooth. Patients can also request a sedative. The tooth will then be removed gently and efficiently.
When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?
Tooth extractions can be needed in any number of scenarios, including:
Baby Teeth | Sometimes baby teeth are stubborn and need a little help falling out. We can gently remove the baby tooth to make room for the adult tooth.
Damaged/Broken Teeth | If a tooth has been broken or damaged badly, it may need to be carefully removed. Removing badly damaged teeth can protect your other teeth from damage.
Wisdom Teeth | Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted because there’s no room in the mouth for them. Without extraction, your wisdom teeth can crowd or damage your other teeth.
Rest assured that we will only extract teeth if it will benefit your overall oral health.
