Extractions in Pittsburgh, PA

Tooth extraction Pittsburgh, PAAs a child, you expected to lose teeth. Your parents told you that you had to lose your first set of teeth before the new ones could grow in. However, now that you have matured into an adult, tooth loss presents a concerning situation. Now you do not have another set of natural teeth to replace what you lose.

However, sometimes health concerns or other considerations necessitate a tooth extraction. The professionals at Pittsburgh Dental Spa will only pull your teeth when absolutely necessary.

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Before approving you for extractions, our Pittsburgh, PA team will ensure they cannot find any other treatment option for the following dental problems:

  • Infections: When cavities or oral damage reach the pulp, or the nerves inside each tooth, bacteria can infect the pulp and cause a severe infection. If a root canal or antibiotics cannot cure the infection, your dentist will extract your tooth.
  • Infection Risks: Sometimes, when you undergo serious treatments like organ transplants or chemotherapy, your immune system can no longer protect your teeth. Your dentist will remove the most at-risk teeth to spare you future pain.
  • Periodontal Disease: Also called gum disease, this condition weakens the tissues that anchor your teeth, so you may have to have a few pulled.
  • Overcrowding: If your teeth are misaligned because your mouth cannot fit them, your dentist will extract a few teeth before performing orthodontic work.

During your tooth extraction in our Pittsburgh, PA office, we use local anesthetic to numb the area. If you need multiple extractions, your dentist may also use a stronger anesthetic that makes you go to sleep. This stronger anesthetic will also eliminate all pain if you have an impacted tooth that the dentist must pull out of your jawbone and gums.
