We tell our patients every day: even if you brush and floss regularly, you may still have to deal with tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth disease at some point in your life. Often, you can avoid these conditions by maintaining a regular schedule of visits to your dentist for routine dental checkups and professional teeth cleaning.
Usually, many of these types of conditions can be caught and treated early before they get out of hand. Despite all of these measures, however, sometimes a tooth cannot be saved and a tooth extraction is necessary.
When you get a toothache, it’s often a sign that the tooth’s nerve is under attack by bacteria or tooth decay. A quick visit to a dentist can often repair and save the tooth by fixing the cavity with a filling made of porcelain, metal, or metal alloy. Sometimes, however, the tooth disease or gum disease has progressed too far for even our excellent dentists to fix, and we must perform a tooth extraction.
Your dentist will remove the tooth with forceps.
Sometimes, root tips are broken during tooth extraction.
We will attempt to elevate and retrieve the root tip.
If you believe you may have a problem developing in one or more teeth – or if you know it for certain – the time to deal with it is now. No matter how long it’s been since you saw the dentist, no matter how far you think you have “let it go,” we assure you we have seen worse. And, no matter what, we will treat you with care and respect. So, don’t put it off any longer – contact Carmel Professional Dentistry today!
