Although we make every effort to save a tooth when we can, sometimes a tooth is too badly damaged to save and getting a tooth pulled is the only option. If you need a tooth extraction in our office in Homestead, we’ll do our utmost to make you as comfortable as possible.
When you visit our office for a tooth extraction in Homestead for the first time, your dentist will examine your teeth and determine the work that needs to be done. You’ll be provided with an estimate of the cost which may be affected by your insurance coverage. If you have dental insurance, be sure to let us know.
When a tooth has only partially erupted through the gum or if it hasn’t appeared at all, we may refer you to an oral surgeon who can surgically remove the tooth. Sometimes, there isn’t enough tooth for an extraction, so you’ll need an oral surgeon.
If you have one or more teeth that are badly decayed or if they’re broken or cracked, teeth extractions may be the only alternative. If you have gum disease, you may also have no option other than extraction. Getting one or more teeth pulled will stop the agonizing pain that you may be experiencing and we can discuss your options for replacing your missing teeth. Call our office in Homestead to schedule an appointment.
Depending on the stage of deterioration of your teeth, you may need an oral surgeon to perform a root canal. Otherwise, we can remove your tooth in order to alleviate your pain and then we can explore your options for replacing your tooth. Call us today in Homestead for more information.
Although baby teeth usually fall out on their own, sometimes a baby tooth will interfere with the appearance of an adult tooth. In that case, your dentist may recommend having the tooth pulled. If a baby tooth has a large cavity that can’t be filled, we may also recommend an extraction. Our compassionate dentists are very skilled at working with children. Call our office in Homestead today to schedule an appointment.
Advanced periodontal disease attacks the ligaments that hold your teeth in place and the teeth loosen. They can also become quite painful so an extraction may be the best method for alleviating your pain. When your periodontal disease has healed we can provide you with options for replacing your lost teeth. Call our office in Homestead for more information.
Sometime in your 20’s you’ll develop one more set of molars called wisdom teeth that will come in at the very rear of your mouth. Many people lack room in their jaw for any additional teeth. Consequently, the wisdom teeth can crowd the other teeth in the mouth. When this happens, you may experience pain or infection, or both. We can extract your wisdom teeth so that your teeth aren’t crowded. If your wisdom teeth don’t erupt, they can cause infection or damage and you’ll need an oral surgeon to remove them. This is a very common dental procedure and we’ll do our utmost to ensure your comfort. Call our office in Homestead today to schedule an appointment or for more information.
Some people don’t have enough room in their jaw to accommodate a full set of teeth, even without wisdom teeth, and their teeth become crooked. If you are planning to have braces to straighten your teeth, call our office in Homestead for an appointment. Removing some of your teeth may provide enough room for your teeth to be straightened.
After your dental extraction procedure, your dentist will give you a list of care instructions for your tooth extraction site. It’s imperative that you follow the instructions carefully so that your incision heals properly. Your instructions will help you alleviate any discomfort or swelling that you may experience but be sure to call us in Homestead if you have questions about your aftercare instructions.
Healing time varies by the individual. It is best to check with your dentist about resuming strenuous activities after your extraction. Your tooth removal site should be completely healed within a week, but if you’ve had one or more molars extracted, it can take longer. Oral surgery will also take longer to heal. Call us if you have questions, we’re happy to provide you with answers.
