FAQs About Tooth Extraction with Dr. Madhvi Potluri
Extractions Starting at $123 / Tooth
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the bone under local anesthesia. Usually, a tooth is extracted to prevent the spread of infection and avoid future complications. The process of tooth extractions may be simple to complex based on the position of the tooth, the degree of curvature of its roots and the relationship of the tooth to the vital structures in the jaw.
Tooth extraction is the final necessary option when all attempts to restore the tooth have failed or the tooth is damaged beyond repair and cannot be salvaged.
Socket preservation after tooth extraction
To ensure that there is sufficient bone for tooth replacement in the future and to maintain the dimensions of alveolar bone, the socket of the tooth is preserved, using a special atraumatic extraction technique.
This step is extremely important to maintain the integrity of facial aesthetics.
During a tooth extraction, the width and density of the alveolar bone are restored by packing the empty socket with bone graft. The correct dimensions of bone make for a successfully fixed prosthesis in the future, with aesthetic gum margins and zero gaps between the gums and bridges.
Teeth need to be extracted when they are non-restorable, such as fractured, deeply decayed, or infected or have broken roots.
Often, whole teeth that are otherwise healthy may also be recommended for removal, as in the case of extra or supernumerary teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, teeth in the line of jaw fractures, teeth associated with cysts or tumors and before or after radiation therapy.
Getting Rid of Pain!
Although the thought of having teeth pulled out is a worrisome one, the actual process is pain-free and has its benefits! Removal of infected and abscessed teeth prevents the spread of infection, relieves pain and discomfort, eliminates the odor of infection and can be life-saving in many cases. Tooth extraction during planned procedures is an inexpensive preventative procedure.
