Our dentists at our Toronto clinic may determine that you need a tooth extraction for various reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need to be extracted because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
At Dr. Kinga Dentistry, we do everything we can to make dental extractions as painless and comfortable as possible. At the time of the extraction, the dentist will numb your tooth, jawbone, and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic. During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure but no pain.
After the tooth is extracted, we will give you post-op instructions as well as medications needed so your mouth can heal fast with minimal discomfort. After a few days of healing, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
After your tooth extraction, your dentist will inform you of options for replacing tooth that have been removed. Replacing missing teeth is important because an open space can allow other teeth to start moving. It also affects your bite and jaw stability. Teeth can also experience uneven wear over time.
