Understanding the Tooth Extractions Process
Knowing what to expect with tooth extractions in Venice, FL, can dispel some of the anxiety or worry you may feel. If you need a tooth extracted it’s because we have done all we can to save the tooth, but feel the best course of action to preserve the health of your other teeth is to remove it.
Are you concerned about pain, the procedure itself, or recovery time? The main purpose of tooth extractions is to stop chronic tooth pain, not cause more and with our sedation options, rarely do patients ever experience any discomfort during the procedure. We use minimally invasive dental lasers during tooth extractions to help loosen the ligaments surrounding the tooth for a smoother removal. You will most likely only feel a slight pressure as the tooth is being lifted out of the socket. Because the dental laser helps to cauterize the socket and neutralize any remaining bacteria, the treatment site will heal faster and cause minimal discomfort. After tooth extractions, we can discuss your options for replacing your pulled tooth, such as with dental implants.
Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants
Tooth extractions do not necessitate tooth replacements, though without natural teeth, the jaw bone will lose density and may cause other teeth to drift out of place. While dental bridges and partial dentures are viable tooth replacement options, they do not offer the permanency and health benefits afforded by dental implants. If you are looking for a long-term replacement after tooth extractions, dental implants are the only option that can provide this, while also improving jaw bone health and facial aesthetics.
