Garland Dentist answers, “Are tooth extractions safe?”There are times in which patients in the Garland, TX area may need to have a tooth extracted. Teeth may be extracted because they are impacted. This happens a lot with wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars. They erupt in the back of the mouth typically when patients are between the ages of 17 and 25 and have a tendency to become impacted because of the lack of space. They sometimes grow in sideways and need to be removed to relieve pain and discomfort. Other times, teeth need to be extracted because of overcrowding and the need to make room for the existing teeth to shift. Teeth are also extracted due to disease or decay.
No matter what the reason, patients in the Garland area need to have a dentist they know and trust to complete extractions in a safe and effective manner. Extractions are safe when done by a qualified professional such as Dr. Vidya Suri of Kings Dental. Our team can help individuals in improving the appearance and function of their smile with extractions as necessary.
Dr. Vidya Suri does encourage patients to have teeth removed under proper anesthetics and sedation to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Sometimes the treatment can be done easily under nitrous oxide if the tooth has erupted through the gum line. In some cases, the dentist must cut into the gums in order to access the tooth below the gum line, and this surgical extraction will require specialized attention to ensure it is done properly.
