Tooth extraction can give you a second chance at a healthy smile! Sometimes, a tooth is irreversibly damaged by a physical accident or dental decay. In these situations, the best choice may be tooth extraction and replacement.
A damaged tooth might become discolored, sensitive, and painful. The affected tooth can cause problems for the surrounding teeth. You can safeguard the rest of your smile by visiting Clear Creek Dental for a tooth extraction.
When is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Some of the issues that could create the need for tooth extraction include:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Overcrowded smile
- Severely damaged or weak tooth
- Risk of infection
Dr. Seth Lookhart will ensure that your tooth extraction is clean and efficient. After the extraction, you may want to apply ice or take pain relievers as recommended by your dentist. Avoid the extraction location while brushing your teeth and eat soft foods for a day or two.
