Do you need to have a tooth pulled? While it is our primary goal to preserve your natural teeth, there are some situations where a dental extraction is necessary.
Some examples include:
- Severe Tooth Decay
- Dental Emergencies
- Advanced Periodontal Disease
- Full Mouth Rehabilitation
- Dental Implants
- Non-Restorable Teeth
What to Expect if You Need
Dr. Aiello will thoroughly numb the entire area around the tooth that is to be pulled. All you should expect to feel is mild to moderate pressure. After the tooth is removed, we will review home care instructions with you so that you can avoid discomfort and improve your recovery.
Did you know that having a tooth pulled could impact your other teeth as well? Dr. Aiello will recommend replacing your missing tooth with something such as a bridge, dental implant, or partial denture as soon as possible. Why? Because your other teeth will start to shift in place, changing the way they bite together. In most situations this will lead to gaps between the teeth, crooked teeth, and even broken or chipped crowns and fillings.
We will discuss which types of tooth replacements are appropriate, so that you can choose the best one for you. Call our Clinton Township dentist today to schedule your preventative care and tooth extraction appointment
