Getting a tooth extracted can be painless at Total Dentistry in Cincinnati.
If you’ve got a tooth that is badly decayed, broken or loose from gum disease, you may be facing having it extracted. For many, the idea of having a tooth pulled produces a lot of anxiety. After all, there’s a reason for the saying, “It’s like pulling teeth!”
We know that having a tooth extracted is never going to be as enjoyable as a bubble bath or as stress-free as a walk on the beach. However, Dr. Omeltschenko will make sure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure by explaining all the steps to you and using local anesthetics to get you completely numb.
Avoid additional problems by replacing your extracted tooth
At your visit, Dr. Omeltschenko will discuss with you the “domino” effect that happens when a tooth is extracted. Having a missing tooth can lead to problems with chewing and with your jaw joint. A missing tooth can also cause the remaining teeth to shift into the now open space and lead to poor “occlusion”, which can cause the remaining teeth to crack and even break.
To avoid these complex problems, Dr. Omeltschenko will always determine if your tooth can be saved before completing an extraction. If an extraction is the only option, he will discuss replacing the missing tooth with either a partial, bridge or dental implant.
