Every had one of those “bad floss days”? They can be embarrassing and contribute to tooth decay. Daily flossing is an essential part of your dental health care solution. And, unlike many things Dr. Pauley and the staff can do for you, you have to do this one yourself. Think of flossing as you would any other part of your healthcare routine: taking daily medicine, going for a walk, eating, bathing, etc. Good dental health is a great gift you can give yourself every day.
On your next visit to our offices please ask the dental hygienist to review your flossing skills and suggest additional ways to keep you smiling!
Tooth extractions remove teeth from their socket under conditions in which they are irrecoverable. General restorations for damaged or decayed teeth are fillings or crowns, in some cases however, the teeth are too damaged to be repaired. An extraction remains the only course of option.
An extraction can be performed with anesthesia, which can numb any pain so you will feel pressure.
Other situations that require an extraction to be performed are:
Removing teeth that prevent others from growing
Removing teeth to create room for realignment
Removing teeth affected by radiation
Removing teeth infected by cancer, which can weaken the immune system
Extract wisdom teeth to prevent them from being stuck in the jaw
Extract teeth that can cause an infection after an organ transplant
Before an extraction occurs, a thorough examination of your teeth will be performed. This is done to allow the dentist to evaluate the position of the teeth and determine if future problems may occur. X-rays can view additional risk factors such as decay or deterioration. Early examinations are recommended to identify problems that can arise in the future.
