At Katy Dental Experts in Katy, TX, we are dedicated to helping our patients achieve and maintain a healthy smile; however, unfortunately, on certain occasions, the extraction of a tooth may be necessary. When other treatment options have failed, or your condition is severe enough, it can actually impact the health of your other teeth and even your gums; therefore, a tooth extraction may be required for the good of your overall oral health. These situations in which a tooth extraction may be necessary include:
In situations where a patient has a tooth which is visible and has erupted properly, a simple extraction can be performed. Using a special dental tool known as an elevator, your Katy dentist will loosen the affected tooth. After the affected tooth has been loosened, a set of forceps will then be used to remove the tooth.
Wisdom teeth are another common reason our patients require teeth extractions. More often than not, wisdom teeth do not come in properly, often becoming impacted or affecting surrounding teeth. In these situations, the extraction of wisdom teeth is highly recommended. Wondering if your wisdom teeth may be problematic? Contact our Katy dental practice to schedule an evaluation appointment.
After the extraction of your tooth (or teeth), we will discuss post-extraction care. It is important not to disrupt the healing process or increase bleeding. Missing teeth can also have a negative impact on not only the appearance of your smile but also the functionality; we will also discuss treatment options available to restore the missing tooth.
