Do you have a severely decayed, damaged or infected tooth? Wish there was a way to relieve yourself of the constant discomfort and pain? Although our ultimate goal is to preserve and protect smiles, certain situations do arise where a tooth extraction is the best treatment option for the patient. At The Toothbooth, we are proud to offer simple tooth extractions, surgical tooth extractions, and wisdom tooth extractions depending upon your condition.
Simple Tooth Extraction
In situations where the affected tooth has properly erupted, is completely visible and is not damaged or broken, a simple tooth extraction may be the perfect option. During a simple tooth removal, the tooth is gently loosened using a tool called an elevator, once loose the tooth will be removed using forceps.
Surgical Tooth Extraction
In situations where the affected tooth is not visible, has not properly erupted and/or is broken or damaged, a surgical tooth extraction may be required. A simple tooth extraction is quite similar to a simple tooth extraction; however, an incision is typically made in the gums. On occasion, teeth may have to be broken to be completely removed from the gums.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are a common reason a patient may need a tooth extraction, this is due to the fact they often don’t erupt properly, becoming impacted and causing problems. Wisdom teeth are often removed using a surgical tooth extraction. Wondering if you may need wisdom teeth removal in Katy? Schedule an appointment today!
