Fishbein Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
General Tooth Extraction
There are several reasons a tooth may need to be extracted. Decay, injury, or other dental conditions can become so severe that a tooth cannot be saved, or the health of the surrounding teeth may require its removal. A tooth that is unhealthy can cause complications like persistent pain and infection, while an otherwise healthy tooth can cause problems such as dental shifting, crowding, and alignment issues.
Common reasons why a tooth may be recommended for extraction include:
- Advanced decay
- Severe infection or periodontal disease
- Dental crowding
- Broken teeth
- Root canal failure
- Orthodontic treatment
Tooth extraction is a common procedure performed at Fishbein Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Vernon, CT. Most of the time, local anesthesia is all that is needed during a single extraction to keep the patient calm and comfortable. Your personal treatment plan, including your options for anesthesia, will be discussed during your consultation appointment.
If a tooth replacement is needed after an extraction, your oral surgeon will discuss your options during your appointment.
