Do You Need to Have a Tooth Extracted?

At the dental practice of Velasquez-Pierce Family Dentistry, we offer tooth extractions to help our patients in Venice, Florida recover from smile issues. Is there a tooth in your smile that is damaged by decay? Do you have a tooth in that is broken? If so, you may need to have the tooth extracted by Dr. Ximena Velasquez-Pierce. While we often try to save a tooth by using a dental filling or crown restoration, if there is extensive damage to the tooth, we may need to pull it.

While we often try to save a tooth by using a dental filling or crown restoration, if there is extensive damage to the tooth, we may need to pull it. Other reasons that might necessitate a tooth extraction include the following:

–You’re preparing for braces and extracting the tooth will make room for the teeth that need to move into proper position.

–You have infected, impacted, or decayed wisdom teeth causing you pain.

–You have an extra tooth which blocks a tooth from emerging.

–You require radiation to the head and neck areas or you are using cancer drugs which result in infected teeth.

If you need to have a simple extraction, Dr. Ximena Velasquez-Pierce will loosen the tooth to remove it. If the tooth requires a surgical extraction, she will make a small incision in your gums to remove the tooth. Naturally, you will be made as comfortable as possible during the extraction.

If you currently have any concerns about a tooth that might need extracting, we invite you to call our dental office to speak with a member of our friendly staff. Dr. Ximena Velasquez-Pierce and our team are here to help. Just call 941-497-4997 today!
