Gentle Extractions from Friedman Family Dental

Sometimes there is no easy way around it–you need a tooth pulled (extracted). It may not be on your list of fun things to do, but for good oral health, it may be necessary.

At Friedman Family Dental, we complete the extraction process in the most gentle way possible. We use a local anesthetic to numb the area and we provide you with thorough instructions for a healthy, comfortable recovery.

? When are tooth extractions necessary?

An extraction is necessary when no other treatment will result in improved oral health. Here are a few instances where a tooth extraction may be necessary:

  • If a tooth becomes severely decayed and no other treatment option can fix it.
  • If a root canal procedure cannot fix a dental abscess or a pocket of infection near a tooth.
  • If any of the four wisdom teeth need to be removed.
  • If you are getting dentures or dental implants, an extraction may be necessary.

Of course, we want you to avoid an extraction at all costs. That is why we like our patients to practice conservative dentistry to prevent serious dental problems (like extractions). One way to do this is through routine teeth cleaning appointments once every six months so we can catch dental issues before they turn into major problems.

Gentle Extractions at Friedman Family Dental

If you are in need of an extraction, your first inclination may be to procrastinate. However, it is best to complete the extraction as soon as possible in order to prevent infection from spreading to other parts of the body.
