Though keeping all of your natural teeth is usually the best option to maintaining your oral health, Dr. Parag Kirpekar may suggest a tooth extraction if a tooth is causing more harm than good. We will perform this procedure with skilled care so you can feel relaxed and comfortable during it. Contact our team if you want to learn more about tooth extractions in Parma, Ohio.
It is important to practice good oral hygiene in order to avoid the necessity of a tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is often our last resort when attempting to maintain your oral health, and it may be required for one or more of the following reasons:
- Advanced periodontal (gum) disease
- Significant decay, abscess, or infection
- Impacted teeth (including wisdom teeth)
- Fractured tooth roots or crowns
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
Before extracting the tooth, our dentist will take a digital X-ray of your mouth to help him adequately plan your procedure. During the procedure, local anesthetic will be used to help you feel completely comfortable. After the tooth has been removed, we will close the area and give you care instructions to help reduce discomfort and encourage proper healing.
