If you have tooth pain and live in or near Marrero tooth extraction may be required to deal with the affected tooth. In some cases, trauma or severe infection can lead to severe pain and make your life miserable! Do not delay and schedule an appointment with Southern Dental Care as soon as possible so we can examine the area where you are experiencing pain.
If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed from poor dental hygiene our dentist will need to extract your tooth. You and your dentist will then be able to discuss options for replacing the removed tooth. This can include dental implants, dentures, or partials depending on how much you want to spend and what your preference is. In most cases, we recommend dental implants since they offer a permanent resolution to a missing tooth. Undergoing a dental implant requires several steps, in which your comfort is always looked after. Initially, the damaged tooth must be removed and then a metal fixture is drilled into and attached to your jawbone. After your mouth heals from this procedure, another procedure is required to attach the implant. More information about our dental implant service can be found here.
Severe dental pain may be the result of significant tooth decay or infection that does not require tooth extraction, but may still require a root canal. A root canal is a dental procedure used when a tooth experiences root decay or infection. The root canal is used to save the tooth and preventing it from needing to be removed. During this procedure, the infected or decayed tooth’s nerve and pulp are removed and the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. Root canals can be uncomfortable, but they are necessary to maintaining your tooth’s health. More information about root canal procedures can be found here.
Preventing Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction is often required when a tooth is severely damaged and in some cases, due to poor dental hygiene. Protect your teeth and prevent damage to them to avoid the need to get a tooth pulled or extracted. Whenever playing contact sports or sports involving the use of hard objects (i.e. baseball and softball) always wear a mouthguard. In addition to preventing tooth trauma, it is just as important to maintain good dental hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwash. Getting regular dental check ups and cleanings are also great ways to monitor the health of your teeth and prevent any need for removing a tooth or getting a cavity filled.
