More often than not, our dental office is capable of saving damaged teeth via restorations and root canal therapy. However, there are instances where extracting a tooth is the most appropriate option, even if it’s far from our first choice. Dr. Renkuntla is trained to carefully and comfortably extract problematic teeth before they cause more damage to your nearby oral structures. Whether your tooth is decayed, infected, damaged or crowding your smile, we’ll make sure that it doesn’t interfere with your oral health any longer. Schedule an appointment with our dental office to have problematic teeth removed safely and effectively with professional tooth extractions in Sagnaw.
When a tooth is so damaged that only extraction is the viable solution, we start by numbing the tooth and the surrounding gum tissue in order to minimize discomfort as much as possible. You should feel almost nothing during the treatment itself. After the anesthetic takes effect, we’ll use a dental elevator to break the tooth from the periodontal ligament. In some cases, we may need to break the tooth into smaller parts for easier removal. Finally, we use a pair of forceps to grasp and gently pull the tooth from your mouth. We’ll then ask you to bite down onto a gauze pad to reduce any bleeding.
