Do you live in Austin, Texas and need a tooth extraction?
If a tooth becomes extremely decayed or broken, it may need to be removed. Gum disease can also severely affect teeth to the extent where they need removal, so it is important that you take care of your teeth properly. If you are in a situation where a tooth does need extraction, an experienced oral surgeon can remove the infected tooth. Tooth extraction is necessary when a tooth becomes so decayed or abscessed that no other treatment options will help or cure the infection. Removing the infected tooth, or teeth, will keep the rest of your mouth safe from the infection possibly spreading.
Before your tooth is removed, the oral surgeon will administer an anesthetic to numb the area in which the tooth is to be removed. This anesthetic will make you comfortable and allow you to peacefully sleep through the entire procedure. The strength of the anesthesia will depend on how many teeth need removal, and how long the procedure will take. After you are comfortably asleep, the procedure will begin and the oral surgeon will remove the infected tooth or teeth. The extraction site may need stitches afterwards. For the next few days, it is not uncommon for you to experience a little bit of pain, discomfort or light bleeding. If there is blood present, bite softly on a piece of gauze to stop the bleeding. Following your procedure, after recovery, your tooth may be replaced by one of the the artificial tooth methods. Some of these methods include: dental implants, bridges, and dentures.
