Your Clinic for Simple and Surgical Tooth Extractions in Ocala, FL
Just the thought of having to get your tooth pulled can frighten most individuals. From the
needle of the injection to the actual process of having your tooth extracted, it is all too
painful and scary. But it no longer has to be.
At Azalea Dental, we make tooth extraction a simple process that ensures the most comfort
for our patients. We have different types of numbing agents for those individuals that are
afraid of needles along with anesthesia options. To ensure our patients are comfortable
with the procedure.
We avoid tooth extraction and seek it only as a last resort. When the condition of the tooth
due to decay or infection is so bad that extraction is the only option to ensure good oral
There are various reasons as to why a patient would need to have a tooth extracted. The
most common of which are:
– Orthodontal reasons, a tooth or some teeth may be pulled out to ensure that your
teeth are properly aligned.
– Infection, when a tooth infection has spread to the pulp of the tooth and causes
decay. Extraction is needed to ensure the infection doesn’t spread into the gums and
– Periodontal disease, there are gum diseases that soften the tissues of the gum that
surround the teeth. This results in the loosen of the teeth, it is better to have them
pulled out before they fall off.
The process of tooth extraction is fairly simple; it can easily be completed in one visit. It
starts with the application of a numbing agent or anesthetic, whichever the patient prefers.
The agent is applied to the gum around the tooth. However, if multiple teeth need to be
extracted, a general anesthetic is applied to make sure that there is no pain during the
procedure. Once the effect of the solution kicks in, we will begin the extraction procedure
which will conclude with stitches.
Before the whole process, we will discuss some post-extraction options for you which
include dental bridges or implants. Both of which are the most popular solutions to replace
an extracted tooth.
During your initial consultation, our dentists will discuss the recovery procedure post-
extraction. This includes:
– Taking pain killers prescribed by the dentist to alleviate any discomfort.
– Ice packs should be used to manage any pain or swelling. Similarly, you can rinse
your mouth with warm water mixed with salt.
– Change your gauze pad often.
– To avoid excessive bleeding, bed rest will be recommended.
– The food you consume should be soft.
The cost is probably the first questions that pop into a patient’s head when it comes to any
type of dental procedure. Unfortunately, there is no set cost for tooth extraction and the
price depends on the exact cause for which the extraction is needed. To get an idea of how
much your extraction will cost, you can consult our dental team and they can assist you.
They will provide you with details of the procedure along with the cost associated with it
after examining the condition of your tooth.
As stated above, tooth extraction is a last resort. Our dentist will asses the condition of the
tooth be it the level of infection, how cracked the tooth is or decayed it might be. The first
option after assessing is always a root canal. However, if the tooth is severely damaged, a
root canal would not make much of an impact which is when the extraction is needed.
Wisdom teeth can be a nuisance and very painful. These are the last teeth in the row of
teeth in both the upper and lower jaw. For most people, there isn’t enough room in the jaw
for the teeth to come out which results in pain and discomfort. The procedure for wisdom
tooth extraction is like any other extraction. It is a routine surgical procedure that our
dentists can help you with.
The healing process after an extraction usually takes about a week. But keep in mind for
more complex extractions, it may take a little longer. If your extraction doesn’t completely
heal in the specified time discussed with our dentist, be sure to contact us and let us know.
