Surgical extractions of teeth may be performed in Palm Beach Gardens

Surgical extractions of teeth may be performed in Palm Beach Gardens

Pure Dental Care offer general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services. As holistic dentists located near Palm Beach Gardens, have oral and overall patient health in mind. Part of their practice involves educating and keeping patients safe.

Trauma, illness, and poor hygiene impact your dental health and can damage your beautiful smile. Dentists work to maintain the health and appearance of their patients’ mouths. Saving natural teeth is their goal. Unfortunately, there are times when the structural integrity of the tooth is severely damaged and the tooth cannot be saved. Extractions may be necessary.

Surgical considerations

In trying to maintain the natural teeth, surgical extractions are usually not the first choice in dentistry. Your dentist weighs the options to determine the best course of action for the patient’s overall health. There are considerations when undergoing a surgical procedure.

  • The benefits of surgery should outweigh the risks. For example, extractions clear out the bacteria without the fear of leaving damaged tissue behind.
  • There is recovery time. Your dentist’s advice should be followed to ensure the best results.

The surgical and follow up process

If the tooth is deeply infected or the structural integrity cannot be restored, extractions are performed. Extractions are preferable to root canals as the latter leaves behind bacteria and the potential for future problems. Extractions are performed with anesthesia to make the patient comfortable. After the tooth is removed, your dentist will clean the area to get rid of any bacteria or damaged tissue. Your dentist will give you instructions on aftercare. Medication may be prescribed to reduce the risk of infection.

"Unfortunately, over the years my teeth had deteriorated and were in very poor shape. As you can guess it had been many years since I had been to a dentist. Fortunately, my doctor recommended Dr. Keith. Dr. Keith and her staff put me at ease and answered all my questions and laid out a plan of what was needed. I was happy to find they were of the holistic mindset and felt very much they were people I could trust with my serious dental conditions. As we have worked through this over the past months I find they are always there for me. If I have an issue here or there, they take it seriously and quickly have me in to correct it as best as possible. They were very careful in removing previous mercury fillings, taking measures to ensure I was not inhaling mercury during extraction. They keep me well informed of what is happening each step of the way which makes me confident in them and in how I am proceeding. I would recommend Dr. Keith to anyone who requires great and friendly dental care." ~Steven
