There are many reasons you or a loved one may need to have a tooth extracted. There are two different types of tooth extractions that we will do at Forever Young Dentistry: wisdom teeth extractions and any other type of tooth extraction that involves regular teeth. When you are having a tooth extracted, you will want a dentist who is experienced and has an experienced staff. Dr. Young and his staff fit that mold and do tooth extractions regularly, making them extremely practiced in the field.
At Forever Young Dentistry, we do wisdom teeth removals as long as the wisdom teeth aren’t impacted. If they are impacted, we will send you to a trusted outside specialist to remove your wisdom teeth. If you are between the ages of 16 to 25, you are the prime age for having your wisdom teeth come in and needing them to be removed. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but some may not need to be removed or some may not come in at all.
Once you have come in and we have determined that you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, we will plan your appointment to have them extracted. When you come in for your wisdom teeth extraction, you will want a dentist who knows what they are doing when they administer anesthesia for the procedure. That is something that Dr. Young is very experienced in, and he has great confidence in giving you the appropriate amount.
Once your teeth are extracted, you will be sent home to recover. Be sure to follow directions given to you by Dr. Young that will include how to take your pain-reducing medication and how to control swelling. Following these directions will make a huge difference in the time it takes for you to recover from the procedure.
At Forever Young Dentistry, we also extract normal teeth for a number of reasons, all of which will benefit you! Some of these reasons include damage that has been done to the tooth, gum disease that has loosened the tooth, your mouth being too crowded by teeth, orthodontic treatment preparation, and a baby tooth that is out of position.
All of these reasons for having teeth extracted are important to your overall oral health going forward in your life. If teeth need to be removed, be sure to have in mind what type of tooth replacement option you will replace missing teeth with, if it is needed. We want to see your smile look beautiful at Forever Young Dentistry!
