Pembroke Pines Tooth Extractions

Contact today to learn more about our dental services.

For residents of Pembroke Pines, tooth extractions are a solution to multiple dental problems. While regular dental exams are critical for good oral health, patients with gum disease can experience some relief through this procedure. When root canals are not possible, extractions are the best course of action.

When Is a Tooth Extraction Needed?

Pembroke Pines tooth extractions take place for a wide variety of reasons, including:

  • To combat overcrowding in the mouth
  • As the first step for orthodontic treatment
  • When a tooth is decayed, broken, or badly infected and no restoration is possible
  • The damage is too much for a crown or filling
  • Poor positioning with other teeth

Cobblestone Family Dental makes every effort to save teeth whenever possible, but sometimes tooth extractions are unavoidable.

Tooth Extraction Methods

There are two methods to extract teeth, the simple way and the surgical way. Our team has experienced general dentists performing general tooth extractions and trusted oral surgeons if a patient requires surgical extractions. Either way, Pembroke Pines tooth extractions are done safely.

In the simple method, the dentist will use an instrument to loosen a tooth that hasn’t impacted the gum and remove it carefully with forceps. The tooth must be entirely visible. If the tooth is not fully visible, this method is too dangerous to perform without surgery.

The surgical method works for broken teeth or teeth that protrude through the gum. This method requires a small incision that is closed after the procedure. Additionally, a dentist sometimes breaks up a tooth for easier removal.

After Tooth Extractions

Following your tooth extractions, gum tissue will begin to form as the healing process begins. A blood clot must form where the extraction occurred to start the healing process. Therefore, patients should not irritate the healing area by brushing it, consuming alcohol, using straws, rinsing heavily, or smoking for 72 hours.

Also, limit exercise for 24 hours after the procedure to prevent unnecessary bleeding and strain on the affected area. An ice pack can help with temporary swelling. 

Pembroke Pines tooth extractions are made simple through Cobblestone Family Dental.
