Having a tooth pulled is sometimes necessary. Dr. Yakobashvili offers the best in care for tooth extractions at Glad Dental P.C. located in the Bronx, New York.
Permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes there are reasons that a tooth would need to be extracted. The most common reasons involve extreme damage from either trauma or decay.
Other reasons for a tooth extraction include:
Before the tooth is extracted, a local anesthetic will be used. It’s injected into the area of the tooth needing extraction in order to numb it and allow for a pain-free extraction. An impacted tooth may require removal of some gum and bone tissue to reveal the tooth. Afterward, the tooth is grabbed with forceps and gently rocked back and forth to loosen it before extraction. As the tooth loosens away from the jaw bone and periodontal ligaments, it will it be extracted. Some teeth are difficult to extract and may have to be removed in pieces. After any extraction, the site will be packed with gauze to stop any bleeding. You will be given instructions to follow after the procedure to ensure proper healing.
Before having a tooth pulled, you should let Dr. Yakobashvili know your complete medical history, the medications and supplements you take, and if you have any of the following conditions:
