Dental Extractions

Remove Damaged, Unhealthy Teeth

Adult teeth don’t always last a lifetime, so dental extraction makes it possible to remove damaged and unhealthy teeth that simply cannot be repaired. You may find that you require dental extractions due to a crowded mouth that needs to be aligned, or perhaps one of your teeth has become too infected to be saved by antibiotics and root canal therapy. Periodontal disease, which infects the tissue and bones that support the teeth, may also force the need for dental extractions, as it loosens and weakens adult teeth. It is always important to seek professional dental extractions to preserve and encourage your overall oral health.

Preparing For Your Dental Extraction

The experts at Advanced Dental Arts of Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Citrus Park, Carrollwood, Lakeland, and New Port Richey will guide you through the dental extraction process to make it as gentle and comfortable as possible. Tooth extraction begins with an anesthetic that numbs the area where the tooth will be removed. Some patients who must undergo several extractions in one procedure may opt for a general anesthetic that puts the whole body to sleep in order to prevent pain. Dr. Kulangara and her team of highly qualified associates make the entire process quick, efficient, and simple. Your recovery will last a few days as you take any prescribed painkillers, change gauze pads, eat soft foods, and relax. Over the next few weeks, new bone and gum tissue will grow into the gap left by the extracted tooth, and you can discuss your tooth replacement options like implants, dentures, or bridges with Dr. Kulangara and her team of professionals.

Making Your Mouth Whole Again

Whether you undergo a single tooth extraction or multiple dental extractions, you will want to make plans to restore your missing teeth. An implant is one option that places a titanium screw into the jaw to mimic the root system of your old tooth. This structure being installed within the gums is so important because it fuses to and supports the jaw bone in order to prevent future oral complications. A crown or bridge can be attached to the implant to mimic the look and feel of a natural tooth. It’s also possible to secure bridges with the help of surrounding teeth if an implant is not preferred. Dentures, which can be taken in and out of the mouth, are another option to resolve widespread tooth loss and create the authentic appearance of real teeth.

Troublesome teeth need to be extracted in a timely manner in order to prevent painful and unwanted problems such as crowding, infection, and accelerated decay. Dr. Kulangara and our highly qualified associates offer specialized expertise in the area of dental extractions and will walk you through the process from start to finish.
