What Are Dental Extractions, And Why Would I Need Them?

Dental extractions involve the removal of one or more of your teeth. They are always a “last resort” option at Swartout Dental. When it’s possible to do so, it’s always preferable to save your natural tooth. Saving a tooth is usually faster, simpler, less invasive, and more affordable compared to an extraction.

But if you have a severely damaged or infected tooth, a dental extraction may sometimes be the only way to treat it, get you out of pain, and prevent potentially serious complications. If that’s the case, a dental extraction from Dr. Jack Swartout may be right for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation, and get the dental treatment you need in Brownsburg.

Understanding The Dental Extraction Process

Numbing and prep

To begin your appointment, Dr. Swartout will clean and numb the treatment area. We also offer sedation dentistry to keep you comfortable during your tooth extraction in Brownsburg.

Tooth extraction

Next, Dr. Swartout will use special tools to loosen your tooth in the socket. Once it’s loose enough, he will grasp it with a pair of dental forceps and pull it out. Then, he will clean the area and suture it shut to ensure that the socket heals properly.

Aftercare and recovery

You’ll be sent home to heal. Dr. Swartout will give you a full set of instructions to follow as you heal and recover. Make sure you follow them closely to speed up the healing process, and come to any follow-ups as scheduled.

Basic Tooth Extractions

If you have a tooth that’s been severely damaged by dental trauma, gum disease, or a tooth infection, it may be necessary to extract it to prevent further complications. Basic tooth extractions involve simply loosening the tooth with special tools, then extracting it from the socket. After your tooth is removed, you’ll want to follow up with Dr. Swartout to replace your missing tooth with a set of partial dentures, a dental bridge, or a dental implant.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

The wisdom teeth are our third and final set of molars. They are a natural part of the mouth, but they grow in much later than the other teeth, usually between the ages of 17-25. Many people don’t have enough space for this third set of molars. 

This can lead to damage to the nearby teeth, a higher risk of infections, and other problems when they emerge. If you have unhealthy wisdom teeth, Dr. Swartout may recommend a wisdom tooth extraction to protect your oral health.
