When Do I Need an Extraction?
At Perfect Smiles, our first choice is never to extract a tooth outright. However, if a tooth has been severely damaged by decay to the point where neither a filling, crown or root canal cannot save it, extraction is the only way to prevent the infection from spreading and restore your oral health. Furthermore, if a tooth is fractured and the crack extends below the gum line, it will likely need to be extracted.
Do Tooth Extractions Hurt?
We always make sure to not only administer local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding gum tissue, but make sure you feel prepared for your treatment and have all of your questions answered so you feel comfortable. Once the anesthetic has had a chance to take effect, you should not feel anything during the extraction process. Keep in mind that allowing the problematic tooth to stay in your mouth is more likely to lead to more discomfort, not less.
