What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is the forcible removal of teeth. At Signature Smiles, we ensure that a tooth extraction is a virtually painless procedure. Our Houston dentists do this by numbing the area where the tooth is located. Once the tooth has been removed, we provide the proper pain medicine to ensure the patient does not experience any pain while the wound heals. Our dentists provide every patient with precise information on post-operative care to make certain the area heals properly and quickly.

Reasons for Receiving a Tooth Extraction

There are various reasons for receiving a tooth extraction. Before having a tooth pulled, our Houston dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the tooth and affected area to decide if a tooth extraction is necessary. Here are just a few of the more common reasons why teeth are extracted:

Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?

If you are experiencing a lot of pain in a certain tooth, there may be extreme tooth decay. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the tooth should be removed, as it may be saved with a root canal or a dental crown. Also, if you notice a lot of swelling and pressure from your wisdom teeth, then this may be a sign to have them removed.

As always, our dentists in the Heights/Garden Oaks area, The Woodlands/Conroe and Humble areas will conduct a dental exam and decide what is the best course of action. If you are experiencing any of these problems, then contact our office today.
