Tooth Extractions in Chesapeake - Cedar Road Dental

You might need tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed or may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, Dr. Zahir will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth. Call Us today to schedule your appointment with Cedar Road Dental.

Simple or Regular Tooth Extraction

These types of extractions, the simple extractions, are the most common in the world of dentistry.

Simple extractions, don't take long to complete. The dentist will numb you before he starts, so you won't feel anything. Depending on the tooth, removing it will normally take just a few minutes after you have been numbed with local anaesthesia. Once completed, the dentist will place gauze in your mouth to bite on and give your detailed instructions for post op care before you go.

Complex Surgical Tooth Extraction and Oral Surgery

As we all know, not all teeth can be easily removed. Sometimes, the tooth will be impacted, decayed or broken off and the dentist will have nothing to grasp above the gum line. In cases such as this, the dentist will need to perform a more complicated surgical extraction, which involves getting the tooth out below the gum line. Occasionally a suture may be required to close the tissue.

Dr. Shabana Zahir is dedicated to providing compassionate, pain-free dental care. If you are experiencing toothaches and would like to learn more about your treatment options, please set up an appointment with us today by calling 757-548-0000.
