Tooth Extraction Q & A

Why Do I Have to Lose a Tooth?

There are many reasons why teeth must be extracted. The most common of these relate to tooth decay and infection. If your tooth is badly decayed, or you have an abscess, it may be necessary to remove the tooth to protect not only the rest of your mouth but the rest of your body from suffering as the infection spreads.

One of the most common ailments that result in the loss of teeth is periodontal disease, which must be addressed decisively and as early as possible. Dr. Orlich and the staff will work with you to make sure that any health issues you have are addressed as thoroughly and compassionately as possible.

What Should I Expect from a Tooth Extraction Procedure?

Most people discover that they are in need of a tooth extraction after a dental visit. Sometimes this is due to experiencing discomfort or tooth pain; other times it is during a routine cleaning with no prior experience of symptoms. In general, tooth extraction creates only minor discomfort and is done under local anesthetic. Our sedation dental specialist provide quality care so patients do not have to experience the procedure. Depending on how decayed or damaged the tooth is and the extent of the procedure, the actual extraction can take a few seconds or some time.

What If I am Afraid of the Pain?

Many patients experience a phobia of the pain associated with dentistry. This is nothing to be ashamed of. Dr. Lowery and her associates at Avery Ranch can offer options for sedation dentistry, which will put you under general anesthesia so that you will experience a pain-free and relaxed process of removal.
