At Vivid Dental in Houston, Texas, we understand the importance of maintaining a complete smile. As a result, when you have tooth decay or damage, we try as much as possible to salvage your tooth through a root canal and other restorative treatments. However, in some situations, tooth removal is the only recourse we are left with to restore your comfort and optimal oral health.
Unfortunately, when you mention tooth extraction, many people have a mental image of an excruciating procedure. But, is it? Contrary to popular belief, tooth removal is a painless process that goes a long way in relieving your pain.
If you are asking why you must undergo tooth extraction, you’ve got company. Nobody likes to lose their tooth because once it goes, you will never have it back. However, in the following cases, tooth removal is the most viable option.
Dr. Monti Harpalani understands that the tooth removal process can cause anxiety even to the bravest patients. As such, he first assures the patient that the removal process is safe and painless. If you are overly anxious, he may use nitrous oxide to help calm your nerves.
In case of a wisdom tooth that has broken through the gums, expect a simple tooth extraction. Here, the doctor uses local anesthesia to numb your gums and the surrounding tissues. Next, Dr. Harpalani uses gentle tools and techniques to pull out the tooth while protecting the surrounding tissues. Due to anesthesia, patients don’t feel any pain throughout the process and even after the procedure.
A surgical extraction is recommended if your tooth is severely damaged or has an impacted wisdom tooth. In this procedure, your dentist has to remove your gum tissue or bone to extract the tooth. However, don’t be scared. Modern dentistry ensures that the procedure is comfortable and safe.
