When Tooth Extraction Is Necessary

Our Marrero tooth extraction services can help if you are suffering from a severely damaged or decayed tooth. An extraction procedure will remove the affected tooth from your mouth. If you are experiencing tooth pain, our specialists can help you determine whether tooth extraction is necessary.

Trauma, infection, gum disease, and poor dental hygiene can all result in the need for tooth extraction. Sometimes, however, a tooth can be saved with a root canal. In other cases, you may need to have a tooth removed in order to make space for your remaining teeth, particularly if you are interested in straightening your teeth. At Southern Dental Care, we find the right treatment to fit your needs.

What Occurs During Tooth Extraction

If you schedule a tooth extraction in Marrero with Southern Dental Care, you can rest assured that we will make your procedure as painless as possible. First, we numb your mouth with either a local or general anesthetic. We typically use local anesthetic to extract a single tooth and general anesthetic to extract multiple teeth. Next, a specialist will carefully remove your tooth, and stitches may be used to close the space in your gums where your tooth was.

After your tooth extraction, you may bleed a little. By applying light pressure to the gauze pad we place in your mouth, you can reduce the bleeding in your gums. For more helpful recovery tips, you can click here, or wait until we advise you on your personalized recovery regimen after your procedure. Southern Dental Care also provides a number of solutions for replacing extracted teeth.

How to Prevent Tooth Extraction

There are several precautions you can take to help prevent the need for tooth extraction:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and be sure to brush before you go to bed.
  • Floss your teeth every day using proper flossing technique.
  • Protect your enamel with fluoride from your drinking water or from a fluoride mouthwash.
  • Wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from trauma while playing sports.

In addition to these preventative measures, you should schedule regular dental cleanings and examinations to care for your teeth. If you are in need of our Marrero tooth extraction services, please contact us today for an appointment.
