Tooth Extraction in Pflugerville, TX | Pecan St Dental

Losing teeth isn’t fun, but sometimes you need to get your tooth extracted to fix other oral issues causing significant pain. If tooth decay, impacted teeth, infections, or severely damaged teeth make saving a tooth impossible, pulling it out becomes the only option. Wisdom teeth pushing on all the other chompers often require removal too. While extraction seems drastic, it prevents further problems down the road. Done right by a pro like Dr. Prab, complications stay minimal. Patients at Pecan St Dental in Pflugerville, TX get advanced surgical extractions and care for optimum healing.

Can't Avoid Tooth Extraction Sometimes

Best to keep your natural pearly whites intact for smiling and eating if possible. But certain troubles make removal the sole solution to restore oral health and pain relief. Severely decayed teeth past fixing with fillings and crowns need eviction. Fractured teeth below the gums rarely have other options either.  

Partially stuck wisdom teeth frequently overcrowd and jumble up your bite all painfully. Infections, cysts, tumors, and mouth injuries also lead to unavoidable extractions. Orthodontic treatment like braces may require pulling teeth to uncrowded mouths. Leaving problematic teeth untouched risks dental abscesses, loss of jaw bone, and agony. Removing the source of infection and swelling brings relief quickly.

Though no one likes losing teeth, extractions prove necessary in select scenarios to resolve issues before they progress. It’s an integral part of overall dental care, not just a last resort.

Extractions during periodontal care prevent future problems and bring quick relief from infections.
