Tooth Extraction

Permanent teeth should, with proper care last a lifetime however, in some cases, tooth extraction may be needed. The most common reason is when a tooth is too badly damaged to repair due to trauma or decay. Sometimes Complete Family Dentistry-Ft. Lauderdale may find it necessary to pull teeth to prepare the mouth for orthodontia or braces. In the case of orthodontia, it may not be possible to properly align the teeth, if your teeth are too big for your mouth.

We have all heard of "Wisdom Teeth" but what are they? Wisdom teeth are any one of four third molars found in the permanent adult teeth. These teeth are the back teeth in the dental arch. Most, but not all people have wisdom teeth, but it is possible for some or all of the third molars to never develop. It is also possible for a person to have more than four wisdom teeth. In many individuals, the wisdom teeth aren't visible because they have become impacted (not normally erupted through the gums). Sometimes wisdom teeth cause pain, but Complete Family Dentistry-Ft. Lauderdale can avoid extracting them with a few modifications of the surrounding tissues or explaining better oral hygiene habits.

If you wake up in pain and ask yourself "where can I get emergency wisdom tooth removal near me", the answer is Complete Family Dentistry-Ft. Lauderdale. Pain from biting down on gum tissue can result if there is a small flap of swollen gum tissue barely covering the back of the tooth. A person may have gum tissue removed from overlying the tooth to remedy this problem providing there is enough room for the wisdom tooth. Tooth extraction for wisdom teeth is often planned in advance as the growth is usually slow and ongoing dental care can watch the process. Emergency tooth extraction can also become necessary if wisdom teeth erupt (or partially erupt) quickly.

There are, however other reasons an emergency tooth extraction may be necessary. Pain is usually the motivator for patients not under continual dental care. A lost filling, crown or extensive decay may often render repair just not feasible. Complete Family Dentistry-Ft. Lauderdale will always attempt to save your teeth and repair them to afford you a painless procedure and restore your confident smile. Sometimes this will not be possible and the tooth will have to be extracted. In this case, an implant could be the answer. Older patients, especially those on an aspirin regimen or blood thinners are reminded to check with the primary physicians first. Rely on Complete Family Dentistry to provide the best solution for your dental needs.
