Why You Would Need a Tooth Extraction

Although adult teeth are permanent, you can sometimes experience problems with them, and a tooth extraction may be needed as part of your treatment. There are many reasons why people have tooth extractions. Sometimes, a single tooth extraction is needed, but it may be necessary to remove more than one tooth in some cases. A single or multiple tooth extraction may be required when a tooth is injured or damaged in an accident, and a repair is not possible. Teeth may also be removed if they have become severely decayed. Another reason that an extraction may be necessary is if a tooth has become infected or if periodontal disease is present in the gums. Aside from infections, decay, and tooth trauma, extractions may also be carried out to help with overcrowded teeth. Extractions can be carried out to alleviate overcrowding in the mouth when there may not be enough space for a tooth to erupt and emerge through the gum fully. As you can see, there are many reasons why both single tooth and multiple tooth extractions may be needed. If you require extractions in Flowood, Mississippi, Lakeland Family Dentistry can help.

The Tooth Extraction Process

We ensure that all patients that visit Lakeland Family Dentistry receive the highest standard of patient care. When patients visit us for an extraction, we work hard to put them at ease and make them as comfortable as possible. Before the extraction takes place, we will take down details of any medication that you take, such as prescribed drugs, over-the-counter medicines, and supplements. You will also need to let your dentist know if you suffer from any medical conditions before the extraction takes place. Tooth extraction is typically a simple process. The dentist will first loosen the tooth and then use forceps to remove it. After the extraction, you may want to rest for 24 hours to help your recovery. The dentist may recommend that you eat soft foods only for the first few days following the extraction. As your mouth starts to heal, usually, a few days after the treatment, you may want to reintroduce regular foods to your diet.
