At Family Dentistry of Frisco, our skilled dentist and team strive to help you maintain your healthy smile with comprehensive dental care. Typically, the goal is to keep your natural teeth, and that is why you take good care of your teeth and gums every day, followed by routine dental visits twice a year for tartar removal, tooth polishing, and exams to spot problems early.
But there are times when a tooth, or several, may need to be extracted to keep your smile healthy. Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved, and keeping it can cause other problems. In this case, extracting it and replacing can be the best option by returning it to its proper function for speaking and chewing.
Why Might a Tooth Need To Be Extracted?
- When the tooth is ravaged by decay
- When you have extensive periodontal disease unable to support the tooth
- You have an impacted tooth
- You have overcrowding in the mouth, affecting the bite
- You have sustained an oral injury
The good news is, if Dr. Patel determines that a tooth should be extracted, our team will make sure that you are made comfortable during the treatment, so it is pain-free. Our practice offers IV Sedation, Nitrous Oxide and Oral Sedation to keep you calm, relaxed and comfortable, depending on your needs.
Prior to having one or more teeth extracted, Dr. Patel will check your teeth, gums and mouth to assess the state of your condition and determine if a tooth extraction is the best option for you. The area around the tooth to be pulled will be made completely numb to ensure your comfort. After the extraction, we will let you know what you can do at home to help the extraction site heal quickly and without problems.
If you have a tooth that needs extraction, Dr. Paresh B. Patel can help you in Frisco, Texas, get the quality treatment you need. Call (469) 362-3150 today to learn more or schedule a visit. Your smile deserves the best dental care possible!
