COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Our goal is to always save a patient’s tooth when we can, but sometimes teeth are so badly damaged that we cannot salvage them. In that case, we’ll perform a tooth extraction in order to alleviate the pain that you’re probably suffering. We do our best to ensure your comfort and to make the procedure as painless as possible. If you’re having problems with one or more of your teeth, call our dental office to schedule a tooth extraction in Hialeah.
Will a Tooth Extraction Be Very Expensive?
During your initial visit to our office in Hialeah, we’ll examine your teeth and gums to determine the extent of the work you need. We’ll then provide you with an estimate of your tooth extraction cost. Be sure to inform us if you have dental insurance as that can affect the cost of your procedure.
What’s Oral Tooth Extraction Surgery?
Whenever one or more teeth have erupted only partially or if they haven’t erupted at all, we may be unable to perform a tooth extraction. If this is the case, we’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. Be sure to call our office in Hialeah for more information or to schedule an appointment.
Why Can’t You Save My Tooth?
Sometimes, a tooth is damaged or decayed beyond the point that it can be repaired. This can be caused by infection, gum disease, decay or being broken. We always strive to save your tooth but sometimes it just isn’t possible.
Can Broken, Cracked or Severely Decayed Teeth Be Removed by a Dentist?
When decay reaches the center of the tooth, it can extend into the root and you’ll need a root canal to alleviate your pain. If the decay is still on the surface, we can perform a tooth extraction which is considered a part of general dentistry. Root canals are considered oral surgery and should be performed by a specialist in the field. After your teeth extraction, we’ll provide you with options for replacing your missing teeth. If you need an extraction, call our office in Hialeah to set up an appointment.
Can Baby Teeth Be Extracted?
Whenever a baby tooth has a cavity that is too large to fill or if it is impeding the eruption of the adult teeth, we’ll perform an extraction. The compassionate dentists in our office in Hialeah are skilled in pediatric dentistry. Call us today if your child is having a problem with one or more teeth.
Do I Really Need An Extraction If I Have Advanced Gum Disease?
If you have severe periodontal disease, your teeth may become loose because the disease attacks the ligaments that secure them in place. Often, an extraction provides the best remedy for tooth pain caused by periodontal disease. After your periodontal disease has been cured, we can discuss your options for replacing the teeth you’ve lost. Call our office in Hialeah for more information or to schedule a consultation.
When Will Wisdom Teeth Appear and What Are They?
Wisdom teeth normally appear in early adulthood. They’ll develop in the very rear of your mouth behind your other teeth. Unfortunately, many people lack the room for them and the teeth must be removed. Extracting wisdom teeth is a commonly requested procedure, and our dentists are experienced in the extraction of these teeth. We want to be sure you are as comfortable as possible. Call our office in Hialeah to schedule a consultation if your wisdom teeth are causing a problem.
Why Do I Have Crowded and Crooked Teeth?
Crowded and crooked teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Sometimes, in order to apply braces, some of your teeth will need to be removed if there are too many of them. This will make room for the teeth to be straightened with braces or other dental devices. Call our office in Hialeah for an appointment.
What Are My Care Instructions If I’m Getting a Tooth Pulled?
Immediately after having your tooth pulled, your dentist will supply you with aftercare information. Following these instructions is vital to the success of your procedure – the extraction site needs to be able to heal properly. Your instructions will include methods for alleviating swelling or discomfort. Be sure to call our office in Hialeah if you have any questions or concerns about your teeth extractions.
What Should I Expect For Healing Time For A Tooth Extraction In Hialeah?
Tooth extraction healing time is different for each patient who has a tooth pulled. As such, your dentist will let you know when you can resume strenuous activities. Complete healing of your tooth removal site usually takes about a week. Keep in mind that molar extractions can take longer than a week. If you’re had oral surgery, it will take longer to heal as you may have stitches.
If you need one or more teeth pulled in Hialeah, call our office at (786) 269-2961 to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
