Understanding Dental Extractions
Dental extractions, or tooth removal, are sometimes necessary to maintain or restore your oral health. Here are some key insights from Dr. Zach Scearce regarding this procedure:
When is a dental extraction necessary?
Dental extractions become necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, overcrowding, or preparing for orthodontic treatment. Our team carefully assesses your oral health to determine if an extraction is the best course of action.
What can I expect during a dental extraction?
Dental extractions are performed under local anesthesia to ensure you're comfortable throughout the procedure. Our skilled team takes great care to gently remove the tooth while prioritizing your comfort. Afterward, we provide guidance on post-extraction care to facilitate a smooth recovery.
Are there alternatives to extraction?
Whenever possible, we explore alternatives to extractions, such as dental fillings, crowns, or other restorative treatments. Our aim is always to preserve your natural teeth whenever it is feasible.
How can I prepare for a dental extraction?
Before your extraction, it's essential to follow our pre-operative instructions, which may include fasting for a specific period and avoiding certain medications. This helps ensure a successful and uncomplicated procedure.
