3 Things To Expect for a Tooth Extraction

Slide 2:

Keeping your teeth healthy is the number one priority of your dentist. Occasionally, you may have to get a tooth pulled due to gum disease, major decay or other problems. Being prepared by understanding what is going to happen will help you to be more comfortable and confident. Here are 3 things to expect when you are having a tooth extracted:   1. Different options for anesthetics   Your dentist will speak to you about your options. Depending on the issue, you may have a local injectable anesthetic, or a general anesthetic that could put you asleep for the procedure. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available too.

2.Accessing the root of the tooth   After the anesthesia has taken effect, dental tools will be used to loosen the tooth from the socket prior to being pulled.   3. Additional techniques may be needed   Depending on the condition of the tooth, a dentist may need to use a drill or widen the area where the gums meet the root. This is typically used in the more difficult extractions.

When you have to get a tooth pulled, being informed on what to expect is the best thing you can do before your appointment to be prepared. Visit this website for more information on teeth extractions in Apex.
