Why should I get Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extractions are often necessary when decay or damage is so severe that it is beyond repair. A tooth might also be pulled to make room for orthodontic treatment or if it's infected and at risk of spreading the infection. Dr. Shreshtha Ramanlal recommends tooth extractions only when it's in the best interest of your oral and overall health. The procedure can alleviate pain, stop the spread of infection, and prevent overcrowding. It's a crucial step towards preserving your smile and health.

The Benefits of Tooth Extractions

Alleviates Pain

Persistent tooth pain can be debilitating, affecting your ability to eat, speak, and even sleep. Tooth extractions can provide immediate relief from this pain. The procedure removes the source of the pain, whether it's a decayed, damaged, or infected tooth, ensuring you can return to your daily life without discomfort.

Prevents Spread of Infection

If a tooth is severely infected and the infection risks spreading to other teeth or areas of the mouth, an extraction may be the best course of action. By removing the infected tooth, we can stop the infection in its tracks, protecting your remaining teeth and overall oral health.

Makes Room for Orthodontic Treatment

In some cases, tooth extraction is necessary to make space for orthodontic treatment. If your teeth are crowded or there's not enough space for a tooth to break through the gum, extraction can pave the way for successful orthodontic treatment, leading to a healthier, more aligned smile.

The Tooth Extraction Treatment Process

Examination and X-Rays

The first step involves a thorough examination of your mouth and the affected tooth. Your Franklin dentist may take X-rays to understand the extent of the damage or decay and to plan the extraction procedure effectively.

Anesthesia Application

To ensure your comfort during the procedure, a local anesthetic will be applied to numb the area around the tooth. This means you won't feel any pain during the extraction, just some pressure.

Tooth Extraction

Once the area is numb, the tooth will be carefully extracted. Dr. Ramanlal uses specialized tools to gently loosen and remove the tooth, ensuring the process is as smooth and painless as possible.
