EXTRACTION

Sometimes, dental issues can’t be resolved with restorative treatments, and a tooth extraction becomes necessary to preserve oral health. At Boynton Beach Dental Care, we offer effective tooth extraction solutions for various common problems.

Our Tooth Extraction Procedure:

– Assessment & Evaluation: Our oral surgeons assess the tooth’s condition and surrounding areas using X-rays and diagnostic imaging.

– Anesthesia Administration: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area, ensuring a pain-free experience. Conscious sedation or general anesthesia may be used for complex cases or anxious patients.

– Loosening: Specialized instruments are used to loosen the targeted tooth from its socket.

– Removal: The dentist skillfully removes the tooth with minimal pressure to prevent discomfort.

– Socket Cleaning & Preparation: The area is cleaned to facilitate proper healing, and additional procedures like bone grafting may be performed if needed.

– Hemostasis & Suturing: Steps are taken to control bleeding, and sutures may be used to close the wound.
