Extraction of a tooth means removing it from the mouth permanently.
An extraction or removal of a tooth is recommended when the tooth cannot be restored
with filling materials or even a stainless steel crown due to advanced tooth decay
or dental trauma. Extracting a tooth is often the last resort after all other treatment
has been considered.
The tooth may have already become so infected that it is now abscessed and causing
spontaneous pain (pain that is not related to chewing or manipulating the tooth),
pain that wakes your child up at night, or severe pain when biting then the tooth
may need an extraction.
Extraction of teeth may also be required as part of an orthodontic problem where
there is insufficient space in the jaws to accommodate all of the permanent teeth.
You will be given instructions by the staff of Gainesville Dental Arts on how to
care for your child after an extraction. Please call 703-743-2324 for an appointment
and visit us at Gainesville Dental Arts in Gainesville.
