We’ve all had a toothache at some point or another. While you should always consult your Granbury dentist, it’s not always a serious problem. Often, the issue can be fixed with a filling or a root canal.
However, many people have found themselves in a situation where the tooth is not salvageable, and the only solution is for Granbury Dental Center to perform an extraction, or remove the tooth. Today, Granbury Dental Center would like to talk about what you can expect from extraction and why it’s not something to fear!
Just like root canals, tooth extractions have a pretty bad reputation. Many folks refer to something difficult by saying it was, “like pulling teeth.” However, we will be the first ones to tell you that the technology and techniques of modern dentistry have made the process of extracting a tooth fairly simple and with minimal discomfort. If you take it easy after the procedure and follow the guidelines, you’ll be back to normal in just a few days.
Preserving your natural teeth is always a priority at Granbury Dental Center, but in some cases an extraction is unavoidable. Here are some of the conditions in which an extraction might be necessary:
