Tooth loss and dental extraction can be overwhelming. While many people fear tooth extraction, more often than not, dental extractions can improve overall health and quality of life. For many, tooth extraction can help them transition to implants, hybrid prosthetics, or dentures for a more confident smile and easier eating. Others find improved health and lower pain levels when impacted or injured teeth are removed.

What Are Dental Extractions?

Dental extractions, also known as tooth removal, are often a necessary part of dentistry and oral healthcare. Tooth decay, injury, root damage, and other damage can lead to the need to remove a tooth and sometimes root. This can prevent surrounding tissue and teeth from suffering damage, illness, and decay. For those exploring prosthetics, dental extractions can provide more options like implants. Sometimes, a tooth can simply be pulled from the gum with a local anesthetic. In other cases, if a tooth is impacted or damaged, surgical removal is necessary.


Benefits of Dental Extraction Surgery

While it can be difficult to know when to extract a tooth, the team at Local Start Dental can help you make the best decision for your oral health. Dental extractions have a range of benefits, including:

  • Lower risk of infection from impacted or damaged teeth
  • Preserve remaining teeth
  • Improve overall health
  • Prevent further tooth decay
  • Lower risk of gum disease
  • Help treat gum disease
  • Help preserve a root
  • Resolve local infections and pain
  • Provide more options for prosthetics
  • Improve quality of life

Dental health is central to overall health. A tooth infection can affect every system of the body and make sleeping, eating, and daily activities more difficult. Removing damaged, unhealthy teeth can help improve confidence, oral health, and reduce the overall risk of disease and infection. Local anesthetics can help reduce surgical pain and help patients recover quickly in our beautiful clinic.
