Tooth Extractions at Arena Dental

Illustration of tooth extractionSometimes the best way to keep your smile healthy is to have heavily damaged or infected teeth extracted. Therapeutic tooth removals allow you to eliminate active oral disease to establish a healthy environment for your overall smile.

Dental extractions are also a go-to solution for fast pain relief, especially during dental emergencies involving severe toothaches.

When Does a Tooth Need to Be Pulled?

We may recommend extracting teeth if they’ve been affected by:

  • Aggressive gum disease
  • Severe trauma, resulting in large cracks or chips
  • Chronic abscesses and pain
  • Cysts and swelling
  • Orthodontic concerns

After Your Tooth Is Removed

After an extraction, there is extra space in your bite. This room allows other teeth to drift and tilt out of place. We’ll recommend replacing your tooth (unless it’s a wisdom tooth) in a timely manner to maintain your smile’s alignment. Bridges and dental implants are two great options to consider.

Your Comfort Matters to Us

Dr Rocco Arena (Dentist) has a reputation as being an extremely gentle dentist. We’ll work at your pace and take extra steps to ensure the highest level of comfort during your oral surgery.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Impacted wisdom teeth are known for causing various problems. From pushing other teeth out of alignment to causing ongoing pain, the third molars often lack adequate space to come in properly. These teeth are difficult to keep clean, making them especially prone to decay and gum disease.

If we see that your wisdom teeth are impacted or partially erupted, we may recommend extracting them as a pre-emptive measure to keep your smile healthy.
