Tooth Extraction Procedure
To minimize your pain, Dr. Karagodsky will inject a local anesthetic. This ensures your comfort during treatment. Our office also works with an anesthesiologist to provide general anesthesia for patients who want further sedation. To extract a tooth, Dr. Karagodsky will use special tools to gently loosen it from the jaw. Once the tooth is loosened, he will carefully remove it. If you have a large tooth that is difficult to remove, he may break the tooth into pieces to safely extract it without damaging your surrounding tissue. If you will replace your teeth with Dental Implants, Dr. Karagodsky may perform a Bone Graft during the same appointment to help preserve or rebuild your jawbone tissue.
Removing a tooth can eliminate infection, which not only saves your other teeth, but can also prevent the development of other serious health conditions.
Smile Maker is dedicated to helping patients preserve as much of their natural smile as possible. However, when other General or Restorative Treatments fail, extraction can become necessary. Removing a tooth can eliminate infection, which not only saves your other teeth but can also prevent the development of other serious health conditions. Tooth extraction also can also eliminate any pain caused by your decayed or infected tooth. We also can replace your tooth with a natural-looking restoration so you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
