Why Do I Need A Tooth Pulled?

There can be any number of reasons that you could need a tooth to be pulled. For example, one common reason is overcrowding. If your teeth grow in at different angles, rates or your mouth is simply too small; your teeth may become very crowded. Often, to remedy the situation, a dentist must remove a tooth to make room for the others to shift with braces or something of similar consequence. You may also need it removed due to an infection of some kind that has reached the pulp.

If a Root Canal is not effective, then you may need the tooth pulled instead to keep it from spreading or worsening. Gum disease or infection can also lead to tooth problems that are bad enough to warrant extraction.

Delaying Tooth Replacement Comes At A High Cost

The decay and infection can spread to affect the neighboring teeth, plus it creates a crevice that attracts plaque and food, causing uncontrollable bad breath. An abscessed tooth can worsen resulting in impacting the sinus cavity and even result in a brain aneurysm. Seeking treatment as soon as possible can prevent unnecessary discomfort and more expensive proced

What Is Going To Happen?

When you arrive for your appointment to extract the tooth, we will offer sedation with nitrous (aka laughing gas) so that you are comfortable. From there, our dentist will determine if the tooth has been impacted or not. If it is, then the bone and gum must be cut away before the extraction. If not, then the dentist will use special tools to gently grip the tooth and rock it until it releases from everything holding it down.

Sometimes, teeth are removed in pieces, but we will be sure that every last piece is out, so don't worry if that happens to be the case. When he finishes, a blood clot will form, and our dentist will have you bite some gauze. You may or may not get some self-dissolving stitches if need be. You may also be put on antibiotics or pain medication after the procedure is complete to stave off infection.

Jay S

Dr. Woodyard has been my general dentist for more than 10 years and he’s always been so concerned and professional. He is up to date on all the newest innovative treatments. He has done several crowns for me and I was able to get it all done in one day since they were made with the latest technology in house by Dr. Woodyard. I would highly recommend him for all dental needs.

Melissa W

Best dentist I've been to! Very professional operation in all respects. Love that Dr. Woodyard does the majority of usual procedures right in house -- including crowns and root canals. Getting a crown in one visit is truly amazing. Mary is a wonderful hygienist with a solid knowledge of her area of expertise. You won't be disappointed!
