Tooth Extractions in Coral Springs
There can be several reasons behind extracting your teeth. Starting from excessive decays, infections, wisdom teeth and crowding, all of these conditions would require you to remove your affected teeth. Your dentist would initially examine your oral conditions, after that they would be able to decide whether you need tooth extractions or not.
Preparing for Tooth Extractions
It is extremely important to have the correct preparations before you opt for tooth extraction. Before your dentist schedule the procedure, he would take a tooth X-ray and see the exact condition. Do tell him or her about all the other medications that you take and also about your medical history. This would help your dentist to provide you with quality treatment.
Types of tooth extraction
There are basically two types of tooth extraction:
The first one is a simple extraction. In this procedure, you would receive local anesthesia and the dentist would remove your teeth using an elevator and forceps.
The second one is surgical extraction. Here you would receive both local and intravenous anesthesia which would make you fully unconscious during the procedure. The dentist would then cut bone around the tooth or even the tooth in order to carry out the extraction.
Depending on your conditions, your dentist would decide which tooth extraction is ideal for you.
