Extractions in Van Wert

Extractions in Van Wert

Dental extractions are procedures in which a dentist removes a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions may be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced periodontal disease, impacted wisdom teeth, overcrowding, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

Before performing an extraction, the dentist will typically numb the area with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, particularly complex or impacted teeth, a referral to a local oral surgeon may be necessary.

Patients are usually provided with post-operative instructions to follow, including recommendations for pain management and proper oral care to facilitate healing.

While extractions are sometimes necessary to protect oral health, dentists strive to preserve natural teeth whenever possible through preventive care and conservative treatments.
