Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Having a tooth extracted is one of the most dreaded procedures for many patients. The procedure involves completely removing a tooth from the socket. We understand the hesitation many patients feel when they are told an extraction is necessary. While we attempt to save your tooth when we can, there are situations when a tooth needs to be removed.

Tooth extractions may be needed when:

  • Extensive decay
  • A tooth that is broken beyond repair
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Space is needed for orthodontic treatment
  • A misaligned tooth is negatively affecting oral health

General tooth extractions in Pueblo involve removing a tooth that is visible in the mouth, such as a tooth that is damaged or badly decayed. This is not a surgical procedure and can be performed with only a local anesthetic, although some patients may require sedation to relax during the procedure.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

One of the most common tooth extractions are wisdom teeth extractions. Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that generally come in during adolescence. There is often not enough room in the mouth to accommodate the teeth and it is common for them to come in partially or become completely impacted when there isn’t room. This can lead to infection, which can spread to the surrounding teeth.

The procedure for removing wisdom teeth may vary, depending on whether the teeth are erupting into the mouth or become impacted. A surgical procedure may be needed to remove impacted wisdom teeth. We offer quality dental care that is customized to the needs of each patient, whether you need a wisdom tooth removed or another tooth extracted.

Sedation to Keep You Comfortable

Sedation may be needed for tooth extractions in Pueblo. Depending on the extent of the work that is needed, we may use nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas, or oral sedation. If oral sedation is required, you will be prescribed a medicine to take before coming to our office. Oral sedation is often used in combination with a local anesthetic or nitrous oxide.

If you have mouth pain, please call (719) 722-3584 for an exam to determine if extraction is needed. 

Commonly Asked Questions

Is the Tooth Extraction Process Painful?

At Pueblo Dental, we prioritize patient comfort during tooth extractions. The process typically involves a local anesthetic to numb the area for a pain-free experience. For those who may feel anxious, we offer sedation options like oral sedation to help relax during the procedure. Our goal is to make your tooth extraction as comfortable as possible.

How Do I Know If I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth removal is common when there isn't enough room in the mouth for them to emerge properly, leading to partial eruption or impaction. This can cause infection and affect surrounding teeth. If you're experiencing pain, swelling, or other complications associated with wisdom teeth, it's best to schedule an appointment with our team at Pueblo Dental to determine if extraction is necessary.
