When your tooth becomes damaged or decayed beyond the point of repair, your only option may be dental extraction, also known as tooth removal. While your dentist will try to salvage the tooth in any way possible including by using a root canal treatment or dental fillings if caught early enough, a tooth that is badly decayed and structurally unsound has to be removed.
At American Dental Care of New Jersey, we provide expert tooth removal and wisdom teeth extraction for patients in Tewksbury, Lebanon, Whitehouse Station, and other nearby areas. Our dentists have extensive experience in tooth removal and carefully extract teeth with as little pain and discomfort as possible.
If you have severe tooth pain or have cracked or severely damaged teeth, schedule an appointment at American Dental Care of New Jersey and our specialized tooth extraction dentists will determine is a tooth removal is necessary.
How to Prevent a Tooth Extraction
There are a number of dental procedures and dental surgery options that can help to prevent a tooth extraction. Preventative dental care and acting quickly when pain arises are two essential keys for salvaging teeth.
Routine teeth cleaning is the first step toward maintaining a health set of teeth and gums. By scheduling a cleaning twice a year, your dentist can identify cavities and infections before the teeth become badly damaged. Ignoring pain and sensitivity is likely to result in more severe tooth pain and ultimately irreparable tooth damage.
If you notice anything unusual such as a chipped or cracked tooth, pain or sensitivity in the teeth or gums, or a cavity in a tooth, give us a call right away so we can save the affected teeth.
Removing a Wisdom Tooth
Wisdom teeth removal or extraction is necessary when your wisdom teeth are impacted. This means they are coming in at an angle and exerting pressure on your adjacent molar. If an impacted wisdom tooth is not removed, it will cause excruciating pain and discomfort and may even become infected over time. It is best to get impacted wisdom teeth removed surgically by a wisdom teeth extraction specialist.
At American Dental Care of New Jersey, we remove wisdom teeth of patients in Lebanon, Whitehouse Station, Tewksbury, and beyond. If you have not yet had your wisdom teeth removed, call our team today to see if extraction is necessary.
After your tooth is extracted, there are a couple of replacement options. You may consider dental implants, which are anchored to the jaw for incredible support, or your dentist may suggest full or partial dentures. Speak with your dentist about replacement options during your next visit.
