At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, our doctors will do everything in their power to save your tooth and prevent the need for a tooth extraction. However, sometimes if a tooth is decayed enough, or there is bad bacteria, having your teeth pulled may be necessary to preserve your overall physical and oral health.
If a tooth is severely decayed it could put your other teeth and your gums at risk, and could cause serious health problems which may require having your teeth pulled. In this circumstance, our doctors and team will perform a tooth extraction to protect you and your teeth. A tooth extraction may also be necessary with baby teeth, if a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out when it should.
Our tooth extraction procedure near Garland is very quick. The root of each tooth is encased within your jawbone in a “tooth socket.” A ligament in that socket keeps your tooth in place. In order to extract your tooth, your dentist will expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament.
Sedation dentistry is available to patients who may suffer from dental anxiety or who may be concerned about having their teeth pulled. Tooth removal may happen at the same appointment that the issue is discovered, or we may schedule the tooth removal for a different day or time.
After the tooth is removed and the tooth removal procedure completed, we will discuss replacement tooth options for you. Your tooth can be replaced by a beautiful state-of-the-art dental implant, or even a dental bridge using hand crafted porcelain crowns. Even if you need a tooth extraction, you can still enjoy the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile after having your teeth pulled in Richardson TX. At our practice, we care about our patients and want them to have the best quality patient care, and dental services.
