Brandon Dentist: Everything You Need to Know About Tooth Extraction A toothache is one of the most painful things you can experience. Once your tooth is severely damaged the only situation it can get is tooth removal. You may visit your dentist for this procedure. Before tooth extraction has to be done the patient is usually undergoing a thorough dental examination. Your dentist must know not just your full medical history but your dental history as well. It is very important to avoid any health risk issues like heart problems or any allergies from antibiotics or anesthetic. Causes of Tooth Extraction: You might be wondering why the dentist wants to remove your tooth when there seems to be no apparent problem with the tooth. Dentists are professionals who can identify dental diseases conditions and decide to remove a tooth only when there is no hope of saving the tooth. If the tooth is not removed the dental disease can progress and cause further detrimental effects in the affected region. Same in the case of Female Dentist Brandon Dr. Laura Coyle she first identifies the disease and then gives the treatment which is completely painless and did by latest equipment. Various dental diseases and conditions in which Dentist Brandon advice you to tooth removal. Some of them are: • Tooth decay which has then progressed to involve the furcation areas of molar teeth. • Tooth decay which has destroyed so much portion of the tooth that it is impossible to reconstruct the tooth using dental materials. • The mobility of the teeth caused due to bone loss around the tooth. • Delicious teeth which have been retained and preventing the eruption of permanent teeth • Removal of a healthy tooth to make room as part of orthodontic treatment. • Teeth which are impacted • Mal-positioned teeth which are causing trauma to surrounding structures and can’t be treated with orthodontic treatment.

A Procedure that Dentist Brandon follows during tooth extraction: • In the very beginning dentist Brandon will give the local anesthesia to desensitize the tooth. This is applied to the oral cavity in proximity to the tooth that is to be anesthetized. The desensitized tooth does not create pain upon subsequent tooth extraction. • The dentist uses an instrument known as an elevator to severe the ligament fibers that attach the tooth to the socket. This is an instrument with a blunt tip. • After the fibers are severed an appropriate forceps are selected to engage the tooth to be removed. The tooth is then removed carefully by the forceps. The Brandon dentist then makes sure the tooth is removed entirely from the mouth. She checks for any leftover roots that may be remaining inside the bone. • There are some risks associated with an extraction. A good dentist makes sure the procedures are optimally done without any damage to the adjacent teeth or structures. • It is important that tooth extraction is carried because it helps in keeping the infection from getting spread throughout your mouth. Apart from all that you need to make sure that once an implant denture or bridge is placed you take good care of your teeth. Follow proper brushing technique and make sure you do not indulge in things which hamper the condition further.
