Comfortable Tooth Extractions in Fort Worth
Tooth extractions can seem like an intense experience, but in reality, it’s nothing to fear. In practice, we will recommend a tooth extraction in situations when too much damage has already been done to the tooth structure, removing it from any chance for effective repairs.
Additionally, certain tooth afflictions such as severe decay, or fractured teeth, can also require a tooth extraction. There are four typical causes of tooth loss: Dental Caries, Periodontal Disease, Cancer, and Trauma. Dental Caries and Periodontal disease are the most common.
Signs You Need A Tooth Extraction: Understanding the Symptoms
If you are unsure whether or not you might need a tooth extraction, we have compiled a list of the most common symptoms often associated with a damaged tooth. Learning to recognize these symptoms, as well as promptly visiting a dentist to inquire about them, is the best preventative measure for any further damage to your teeth.
These symptoms may indicate that you need a tooth extraction:
- Pain (of the tooth or jaw)
- extreme tooth sensitivity
- crumbling teeth
Does A Tooth Extraction Hurt?
The tooth extraction procedure itself is relatively painless. The first step of the procedure is to have an examination of the problem area. Dr. Damon or Dr. Dupree will also do a review of your medical history. This is to be better prepared for any unforeseen complications due to other medications or health conditions you might have.
We will discuss three options for the extraction: Awake under Local, Local with N2O, or IV Sedation. We want you comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. If Dr. Damon or Dr. Dupree will be removing third molars, then IV Sedation will be used.
We will typically schedule you for the tooth extraction after your consultation. We perform IV Sedation most days, but these spots are typically booked in advance. Other forms of sedation are available as well.
What About Replacing the Tooth?
Unless you want a gap or a missing tooth, Dr. Damon and Dr. Dupree will talk to you about filling the missing tooth with three options:
- a removable partial,
- a fixed dental bridge,
- or a dental implant
We will discuss each of these recommendations at your consultation.
