At Caliber Dental, we always make every attempt to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady. If the damage to your teeth is extensive, then it may be necessary to extract one or more teeth in order to maintain dental health.
If a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional.
Whatever the cause, you can rest assured that Caliber Dental will carefully explore and inform you to any other options before making the decision to remove a tooth. Should tooth extraction become necessary, you are assured the nurturing care that comes with any Caliber Dental Dentistry procedure. We understand that the process of having a tooth extracted can be daunting and make every attempt to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
Every dentist wants his/her patient not to lose a tooth. At Caliber Dental, Dr. Bagga provides you with the best oral care.
Dr. Bagga will only recommend tooth extraction if and only if it is the only means to prevent your current dental problem or to prevent from gaining dental problem in the future.
People whose teeth are highly damaged due to decay or trauma are only removed. If it is the only way to extract your teeth, it is recommended that you get your teeth replaced.
Before extraction, Dr. Bagga would take a detailed examination on your medical history to suggest any other alternative treatment to solve the issue. X-ray will be taken to determine the problems that may be created due to the teeth extraction.
Dr. Bagga will explain the in detail the procedure that the patient is going to undergo. At this point Dr. Bagga welcomes any doubts or clarifications from the patient. He wants you to be comfortable and clear about what is the issue and how it can be solved.
Tooth extraction will be done under the influence of sedatives so that you won’t be feeling any discomfort during the process. Since you are sedated, you will need someone to drop you and pick you up from Dr. Bagga’s office.
Once done, you will be handed a clean gauze for you to bite to stop the bleeding. The gauze will create a blood clot on the socket that helps in healing.
After tooth extraction, you will be asked to rest for 24 hours to prevent any on the extracted site. Eating solid food is restricted and drinking hot liquids can dissolve the blood clot so it should be avoided too.
Rinse your mouth with warm salt water for cleaning. Limit brush and flossing on the extracted site and neighboring teeth for few days. In case of any discomfort please contact Dr. Bagga for assistance since it can develop other problem if untreated.
