Why Would I need a Tooth Extraction?

There are a few common reasons that you may need to have one or more of your teeth extracted:

wisdom teeth

The wisdom teeth are a natural part of your mouth, but they often grow into your mouth improperly, which can cause damage to your teeth and other oral health complications, so many patients opt to have them removed when they emerge between the age of 17-25.

oral disease

Serious oral diseases like gum disease, tooth decay, or an infected tooth can require you to have one or more teeth extracted.

dental Trauma

Major dental trauma from a slip and fall, car accident, or a hard hit in a contact sport can damage your tooth. In some cases, extracting and replacing the tooth may be the best option for restoring your smile.

Basic Tooth Extractions

Basic tooth extractions are used for teeth that are not impacted, and have fully erupted in the socket. Dr. Gino will begin by cleaning and numbing the treatment area. Then, the tooth will be wiggled loose in the socket using a “dental elevator.” Once it has been sufficiently loosened, Dr. Gino will pull it out using a pair of dental forceps.

Then, the area will be cleaned and disinfected, and sutured shut for proper healing. This process usually takes only about 5 minutes per tooth, and will be repeated if you’re having multiple teeth extracted.

surgical tooth extractions

If a wisdom tooth is not fully erupted or a damaged tooth has broken off at the gumline, a basic extraction can’t be used, and a surgical extraction is required instead.

In this procedure, an incision is made in the gums after they’ve been cleaned and numbed. Then, Dr. Gino will use this incision to access the tooth structure. The tooth will be cut into pieces and extracted piece-by-piece. Once the entire tooth has been removed, the area will be cleaned and stitched shut to promote healing.
