When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

Severely diseased or decayed teeth, as well as impacted wisdom teeth, increase the risk for chronic tooth pain, infection, and damage to other teeth. These situations oftentimes necessitate tooth extractions, with the end goal always to preserve your oral health.

If you have chronic tooth pain, it is wise to seek the care of an experienced dentist like Dr. Mitchel Senft. He provides both problem and wisdom tooth extractions on a routine basis and is certified in IV sedation for a virtually painless, comfortable and stress-free experience. Tooth extractions at our office are always a last resort (except for wisdom teeth removal), and we do our best to save natural teeth when possible. In instances where we deem tooth extractions in West Palm Beach, FL to be necessary to preserve your health, you can feel safe and secure receiving care from us.

If your tooth is badly decayed and can't be saved, your dentist may recommend a common surgical procedure called a tooth extraction.

The Tooth Extractions Process

Our goal with tooth extractions in West Palm Beach, FL is to make your appointment as efficient, painless, and as comfortable as possible. Extractions are relatively simple procedures and rarely lead to complications. Commonly, tooth extractions can be completed with local anesthetic, though we will provide additional sedation options to help you feel relaxed. During the actual extraction process, you will only feel a slight pressure as the tooth is removed. After tooth extractions, it will take a few days for your body to recover and swelling to go down. We will provide detailed instructions at your appointment, so you will know what to expect as you heal. If you are concerned about tooth extractions, we welcome you to contact our office for an appointment! Many times, assurance that the procedure is fast, safe, and eliminates chronic tooth pain for good is all our patients need to feel comfortable pursuing care with us.

Replace Teeth After Extraction

Having to remove a natural tooth is certainly unfortunate, but modern dentistry provides many options for replacing teeth. On the forefront are dental implants, the only solution that replaces an entire tooth in structure, function, and beauty. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone and are cared for just like natural teeth. Their imitation of natural teeth extends to the dental crown, which we match in shape, size, and color to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. Dental implants provide patients who have had tooth extractions with many benefits.
