Is Extraction the Best Option?
There are a few different reasons why you may need an extraction. These reasons vary from person to person but may include:
- Severe tooth decay: If you have a cavity that has become too large, extraction may be the best option to restore your oral health and keep the decay from spreading.
- Tooth infection: A tooth infection can be uncomfortable and may require extraction to prevent it from impacting the rest of your smile.
- Gum disease: Gum disease affects the bone and tissues supporting the teeth and can lead to tooth loss. In some cases, extraction is the only way to preserve the surrounding teeth.
- Crowded teeth: We may recommend extraction to create more space for a corrective treatment if you have crowded teeth.
- Impacted teeth: When you have a tooth stuck in the jawbone that can't come through the gum tissue, extraction is often the only way to correct the problem.
On your consultation visit, we will evaluate your situation and recommend the best course of treatment. When you receive an extraction at our Portland office, our team works with you to determine the best restoration option to repair the completeness of your smile.
Our Portland Tooth Extraction Process
Getting a tooth extracted may seem a little daunting, but we prioritize providing gentle, efficient care at every stage of our process. Our goal is to give you a comfortable experience that will help you feel at ease and restore your oral health. The steps involved in the extraction process will vary depending on the type of extraction needed, but generally, the process will be as follows.
First, we'll take an x-ray of the tooth to be extracted so we can detect potential complications, like bone fractures. We'll numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the extraction. The tooth is then loosened from the gum tissue and bone and removed from the mouth. We perform simple extraction when the tooth is visible in the mouth and can be accessed without any surgical procedures. If your situation is complex, our team works with local specialists to get you the care you deserve.
Dental Bone Grafts
A dental bone graft may be recommended when extracting a damaged tooth. This procedure is used to replace the bone that was lost during the extraction and help promote bone health. Not all patients require a dental bone graft, but if you do, the procedure will be performed simultaneously with your extraction.
Once the tooth has been removed, our specialists will give you detailed instructions on caring for the extraction site. You may need to ice the area after the extraction to reduce swelling. You will also need to take pain medication as prescribed while making sure to keep the area clean. Depending on the type of extraction you had, you may be given a temporary dental appliance to wear. It takes a few days to heal after an extraction before you are able to resume your normal activities.
