Do you have overcrowded teeth? Experiencing severe tooth decay or an infection? Think you may need a tooth extraction in Glendale Heights? At Lotus Dental Care we are proud to offer simple, surgical and wisdom tooth extractions for our patients in need. Not sure if a tooth extraction is necessary? Here are some common reasons to extract a tooth:
For patients with a properly erupted and visible tooth, we can most likely provide a simple tooth extraction. Using an elevator, the tooth will be loosened and then removed using forceps. Most simple extractions are done using a local anesthetic.
A surgical tooth extraction may be recommended if the patient has a tooth that has not yet erupted, hasn’t erupted properly or is broken. A small incision will be made so that the entire tooth can be properly removed. Surgical extractions may require anesthesia.
Wisdom teeth are a common reason a tooth extraction may be recommended. Wisdom teeth are known for having complications such as impaction, infection or overcrowding.
Patients that neglect to extract a tooth that requires it may experience further complications such as oral infections, abscesses and in serious cases, sepsis (a possibly fatal infection of the blood).
