Dentist in Antioch, TN
There are many reasons why you might need a tooth extraction. Sometimes decay, infections, and damages are so much that they cannot be treated through restorative procedures, and extraction is the only way out. People might also have overcrowded teeth, and if they want braces, they might have to remove one or two teeth. Thus, tooth extraction is a standard outpatient treatment that is quick, simple. However, there are cases where the tooth is hidden beneath the roots or impacted; in such cases, you would need surgical extractions, which is a bit complicated. If you are searching for an experienced dentist who can help you with the procedure, please contact us at Brite Smilez.

Why do you need an extraction?
Dentists generally suggest tooth extraction when they are unable to fix an issue with a filling, crown, or any other dental procedure. If you opt for braces and there is no room for the teeth to align, your dentist might also suggest a tooth extraction. Some other reasons for extraction are:
- In case the tooth decay or damage is deep, it cannot be repaired through any other means.
- If the baby teeth are not falling out, but it’s time for the permanent teeth to grow.
- If you will be going through any orthodontic procedures.
- In case your wisdom tooth is troubling the nearby teeth.
In all these cases, your dentist will suggest you go through the tooth extraction procedure. You will be given local anesthesia during the process, so there is no fear of pain. Once the anesthesia’s effect is gone, you would feel pain and swelling, but that would go away. Have liquid food and apply a cold compress on the concerned area for the best results. Also, follow all the instructions given by your dentist.
