Tooth Extractions Can Help You Protect Your Oral Health
At Nona Dental Arts in Orlando, we understand that in some cases, tooth extraction is necessary to maintain or promote oral health. Whether due to significant decay or damage, overcrowding, or impacted wisdom teeth, we work with our patients to ensure that the procedure is performed safely and efficiently.
How do I know if I need a tooth extracted?
If you’re experiencing tooth or jaw pain, have a severely decayed or broken tooth, or have been diagnosed with advanced gum disease, there is a possibility that your dentist may recommend an extraction. In addition, if your teeth are or have grown in crooked or if space is needed for orthodontic treatment, it could be necessary to remove one or more teeth.
What are the benefits of having a tooth extracted?
There can be several benefits, including pain relief and prevention of infection. By removing the source of the discomfort, your oral health can be improved dramatically. Additionally, once a tooth is extracted, it prevents further damage to other teeth and eliminates bacteria that could cause short- and long-term oral health problems.
What is recovery like following this procedure?
Most patients experience mild discomfort or swelling following their treatment, but this should not last more than a few days. We may prescribe antibiotics and pain medication to keep your mouth healthy and help you manage any discomfort. Make sure to follow all of the aftercare instructions provided by your dentist so that your recovery is as smooth as possible.
