Learning About Tooth Extractions

Posted .

There are a lot of things to learn about in the dental world. Extractions are definitely one of them since it’s not always clear when and why you need a tooth pulled.

We wanted to help answer those questions and clear up the extraction process. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the entire world of extractions.

When do you need one?
We’re all pretty familiar with the most common tooth extraction – wisdom teeth. Luckily, not every extraction is that involved. Most extractions can be handled by a dentist. These include pulling teeth that haven’t yet fallen out or extracting teeth that have cavities or other forms of damage and tooth decay.

What happens next?
After our dentist extracts your teeth, you’ll have a few different options at your disposal. Severe damage or decay may limit what your options are, but you’ll still have quite a few to choose from.

The most common step, though, is to replace the extracted tooth with an implant or bridge. The entire team here at Geza Locsey DDS in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, has extensive experience with both of these procedures.

If you think you have a tooth that needs extraction or want a second opinion about a problem tooth, call us today at 614-866-1234 to schedule an appointment. Dr. Geza Locsey, Dr. Linda Smith, and Dr. Carly Locsey are here for your smile!
