What are Tooth Extractions?
When a part of a tooth has decay (commonly known as a cavity), it is soft and this decay needs to be cleaned out and removed by the dentist.
Once the decay is removed, part of the tooth is missing or has a hole in it. A filling replaces this missing tooth structure.
Many filling materials exist, including tooth-coloured composite resin, mercury amalgam, and gold.
Tooth Extraction Procedure:
The Dentist will use a numbing solution on the nerves of the tooth to eliminate the stress and pain of the extraction.
The patient may feel pressure but no pain during the brief procedure.
Tooth Extraction Benefits:
Cost effective treatment of dental abscesses, painful teeth, severe cavities
Is done comfortably in one short visit
In conjunction with orthodontic treatment (braces), extractions can help alleviate severe crowding of teeth
Removes a hopeless tooth to make way for an implant or bridge
