Tooth Extractions in Vero Beach, FL
At Cromer and Cairns Dental in Vero Beach, FL, we are committed to providing excellent preventive care for your teeth and doing everything we can to repair damaged teeth. But sometimes teeth are too damaged or decayed for repair. In that event, tooth extractions become necessary.
Tooth extraction consists of removing the entire tooth from its socket, often later replacing it with a dental implant, dental bridge, or denture. Drs. Cairns and Cromer are both highly experienced in providing comfortable and prompt extractions, with the option to use anesthesia to numb any pain.
When a tooth extraction is necessary
Significant tooth decay or damage is one of the most common reasons for tooth extraction. Our dentists always work to repair damaged, broken, or decayed teeth with fillings, crowns, or other solutions before resorting to tooth extraction. But sometimes the damage is too great to be repaired and would simply cause further oral health problems if the tooth were left in place.
In addition to damage and decay, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary for overcrowding reasons. If you have extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from coming in, have too many teeth in your mouth as you work to align teeth with braces, or are dealing with wisdom teeth erupting, you may need to have a tooth extraction.
Our dentists always complete a thorough examination of your teeth and a dental X-ray to evaluate the position of your teeth and determine whether there are signs of further problems. We’ll discuss with you the entire procedure and healing process ahead of time, so you have all your questions answered before the extraction. We’ll also discuss your options for tooth replacement.
