Do you need a tooth extraction and live in Lakeway, Texas?
Extremely broken or decayed teeth may need to be removed. If they are not, the infection can spread to other areas of your mouth and cause other problems. One of the leading causes of a tooth needing extraction is gum disease. Gum disease can severely affect teeth by loosening the surrounding gums, and infecting the teeth. If you are in need of a tooth extraction, an oral surgeon is who you need to visit. This oral health professional can remove your infected tooth or teeth as needed. Tooth extraction is necessary when a tooth becomes so decayed or abscessed that no other treatment options will help cure the infection.
Before any teeth are removed, you will be administered an anesthetic to numb the area in which the teeth are being removed as well as making you comfortable enough to sleep peacefully through the entire procedure. The strength of the anesthesia will depend on several factors including how many teeth are in need of extraction and how long the procedure will take. After you are comfortable and asleep, the oral surgeon will begin the process of removing the infected tooth, or teeth. The extraction site might need stitches. For a few days, following the procedure, you may experience a small amount of pain or discomfort and some light bleeding. All of these symptoms are normal after a tooth extraction. If you are experiencing any bleeding, gently biting on gauze typically does the trick. After the recovery period of over, your tooth may be replaced by one of the many artificial tooth methods. These methods include: dental implants, bridges, or dentures. Your surgeon can help you further decide which is the best option for you.
