The best way to increase your chance of keeping all of your natural teeth is though great oral hygiene and regular general dentistry treatments. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and nowhere does that adage come into play more than with your oral health. Still, life happens, some people can do everything correctly and still end up losing one or more teeth. Health problems, genetics, trauma and such play a role in whether or not you get to keep all your natural teeth for a lifetime.
When tooth extraction is necessary, at Singla Dental we provide you with a comforting relaxed atmosphere and a caring compassionate staff to handle the procedure with gentle, yet expert skill. Most extractions are routine procedures requiring a minimal amount of time. Occasionally a tooth will be extracted before a person has an opportunity to get anxious about the process. Anterior teeth are usually the least problematic since they only have one root. As your move further back in the mouth the number of roots increase with molars having three and sometimes four roots.
Regardless of the difficulty of the procedure, you are in good hands with Dr. Singla. His calming chairside manner and gentle touch will relax you, calming any anxieties you may have regarding the procedure. After the extraction is completed you will receive instructions for aftercare. Follow these carefully for proper healing.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The last teeth to erupt in the mouth are the wisdom teeth. Usually they begin to make their appearance in the late teens or early twenties. In some instances wisdom teeth come in without any problems at all. At other times they can cause a variety of problems. They can become impacted, which means they can grow up against or under an adjacent tooth pushing it out of place and causing discomfort. They can also grow in crooked or sideways. An exam can easily determine what shape your wisdom teeth are in and whether or not they need special care and removal.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort with your wisdom teeth, contact Singla Dental and make an appointment. Your teeth will be examined and Dr. Singla will make a determination as to whether or not your wisdom teeth need to be extracted.
