What are Tooth Extractions?
While Dr. Christopher Ashby makes every effort to save and preserve your natural teeth, there are cases where a tooth or teeth might need to be removed. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gums. This is generally done for a tooth that's decayed or damaged and cannot be repaired. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that hasn't erupted over the gumline. Surgical extractions are most commonly performed to remove impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, that do not have sufficient space to fit into your smile. No matter the reason for having an extraction at Fort Loramie Dental Center, our staff provides compassionate care and safe treatment. Our Fort Loramie, OH office offers multiple sedation methods, such as nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, to stay calm and comfortable during your treatment. Get in touch with our staff for more information or to schedule an exam with Dr. Ashby to improve your oral health.
How are Tooth Extractions Performed?
Extractions are performed in our office using local anesthesia on the area around the tooth that is being removed. Different forms of sedation might be used based on the extent of the procedure and to help keep you relaxed if you have any dental anxieties. As soon as you're ready, Dr. Ashby will start the procedure. To complete a simple extraction, Dr. Ashby will loosen the tooth with a special elevator device before removing the tooth. A surgical extraction involves incisions in your gums to get to the tooth. If necessary, the tooth might be broken up into smaller pieces to remove it. When the tooth has been removed, Dr. Ashby will close the incision in the gums. Dr. Ashby may prescribe antibiotics to be taken before and after the operation — in case you have a current illness, if your immune system is weak, if the procedure is extended, or if you have other unique health problems.
