Tooth Extraction Tampa, FL

A tooth extraction is a common dental procedure that many patients will need at some point in their lifetime. Tooth removal may be recommended by our dentist to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by a broken, decayed or infected tooth, or in preparation for a restorative dental procedure. At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, we offer gentle simple tooth extractions performed using the latest dental technology. Dr. Tran is skilled in removing teeth with minimal pain to restore your comfort and oral health.

What Is A Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is an outpatient procedure in which a tooth is completely removed from its socket in the bone. Tooth removal may be performed by either a dentist or an oral surgeon, depending on the complexity of the extraction. Patients will generally be numbed with a local anesthetic to maintain their comfort throughout the procedure and in some cases may require additional sedation options.

Why May I Need A Tooth Extraction?

A tooth removal may be recommended by our dentist for many reasons including:

  • Severe cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth infection
  • Decay
  • Broken or damaged tooth
  • Wisdom tooth complications
  • In preparation for braces
  • In preparation for a restorative dental treatment

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are often the last teeth to appear in your mouth and because of this, wisdom teeth often don't have room to grow or develop normally. Most dentists will recommend the removal of your wisdom teeth to avoid complications such as dental pain, infection, tooth overcrowding and sinus complications. At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, our dentist will thoroughly examine the location and positioning of your wisdom teeth using the latest x-ray technology to determine the best course of action. For a simple tooth extraction we may be able to perform the procedure in the comfort of our office. For more complicated extractions, Dr. Tran will make a recommendation to a trusted specialist.

What Is The Tooth Extraction Process?

Prior to your tooth removal, we will first welcome you to our Tampa dentist office for a consultation with our experienced dentist, Dr. Tran. This will consist of a complete examination of your teeth as well as the taking of necessary x-rays to get a comprehensive understanding of your oral health. Dr. Tran will go over all your treatment options to determine if tooth removal is the right option for you.

To begin your tooth extraction process, we will safely administer a local anesthetic to numb the area of the extraction. Dr. Tran will then precisely and gently remove your tooth. If necessary, he may administer self-dissolving stitches to close the space. He will then place a thick layer of gauze over the area to control any bleeding. Our staff will take the time to make sure that you feel comfortable after your procedure and will go over all your aftercare instructions.
