Teeth Extractions in
Lowell, Massachusetts

Permanent teeth are supposed to last a lifetime, but there are numerous reasons why they may need to be extracted. As much as we want to save your natural teeth, extraction is unavoidable in some cases and is the last resort to restore your dental health.

Dental Tooth Extractions in Lowell, MA

Prior to the extraction process, we will look at your medical history and take X-rays of your mouth. From your X-rays, we will be able to gather information on the position, shape, and length, shape of the tooth and the jaw bone around it. This will help us estimate the best way to remove the tooth. The procedure is performed under the effect of anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain. Once the area is numb, the tooth is loosened from its socket and then removed. Once extraction is complete, the area is flushed and stitches are placed.

There are two types of extractions performed to remove a tooth:

A Simple Extraction

A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that is visible and fully erupted in the mouth. In this type of extraction, the tooth is loosed with a tool called an elevator and then removed using dental forceps.

A Surgical Extraction

A surgical extraction is a more complex procedure that is performed when a tooth has broken off at the gum line or has not erupted fully.

After the removal of the tooth, it is important to keep the area clean to prevent infection. We may also recommend an over-the-counter or prescription painkiller if necessary. If there is significant discomfort after the procedure, do not hesitate to contact our office. Take good care of the extraction site by keeping it clean and eating soft, cold foods for a few days after the procedure.
