At Advanced Family Dental, our aim is to keep your dentition healthy for as long as possible. However, there are times when you may need to extract your teeth, or those of your child’s. Teeth extraction is also known as teeth removal. There are many reasons for a teeth extraction. A tooth damaged by trauma or decay may be eligible for extraction. An impacted wisdom tooth may also need to be extracted so that it won’t cause problems for you later. Teeth extraction may also be necessary if your child is billed for an orthodontic treatment and doesn’t have enough space for his or her adult teeth – a condition known as crowding.
Tooth extraction is a common procedure. The process of extraction depends on the location of the affected tooth, and the state of its roots. For instance, it is easier to remove the front tooth with one straight root compared with a molar that has multiple roots. This is true especially in the case of an impacted wisdom tooth.
That notwithstanding, at Advanced Family Dental, we have experienced hands and also use the latest technology so you’ve got nothing to be afraid of as regards tooth extraction in Miami. Please note that your tooth is fixed to its surrounding bone in a rigid pattern. It is anchored by a network of fibers known as the periodontal ligament. At Advanced Family Dental, our dentists will manipulate the tooth carefully, and dislodge these fibers, thus freeing your tooth without stress.
