Tooth Extraction in Virginia
Do You Need Oral Surgery - a Tooth Extraction in Virginia?
Certainly, you and our dentist may determine that you need a tooth extraction in Virginia for any number of reasons such as:
- Severely decayed
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Teeth broken in a way that cannot be repaired
- Teeth poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth)
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
Altogether, the removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
Unquestionably, to avoid these complications, in most cases our dentist will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
The Extraction Process
Basically, at the time of extraction, our expert will need to numb your tooth, jawbone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic. Undoubtedly, your comfort and safety is our top priority. During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. Generally, this is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal. Meanwhile, you feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain. Whereas the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.
Thus, if the tooth is impacted, our dentist will cut away gum and bone tissue and gently rock the teeth back and forth to loosen it.
Finally, recovering from a tooth extraction depends on the type of extraction. Generally a few days. It varies from person to person. The type of extraction can be simple or surgical.
