The removal of a single tooth could be one of the most straightforward and time-efficient of all the procedures carried out by dental practitioners. It is also one of the least costly. And yet still, many are choosing to self-medicate if you will, believing that they are saving themselves more time, trouble and money. But in the long-term, tooth removal in Brook Park will be far less costly. Indeed, long-term damage could be incurred if you attempt to pull your own tooth out.
By allowing the dentist to do the tooth pulling in your stead, similar symptoms may well be encountered. But these pale into insignificance in comparison to what you may be putting yourself through. It might be expected that you may feel a slight bit of discomfort, less so now that you are placed under anesthetic. The dentist’s involvement will also be a lot more hygienic. There will also be little to no chance of infection.
Immediately after the tooth is pulled, the dentist will set to work cleaning the affected area. For the time being, you are still left with a bit of a gap which still needs to be cared for until such time that that gap can be filled. But it should not be long to wait. The dentist will not delay the process of filling that gap with a partial denture or partial dental implant. The dentist’s thorough examination of that affected area as well as the overall health of your dental and oral structures will determine which of the two will be best suited to you.
By pulling your own tooth and ignoring matters thereafter, sets you up for aggravated exposure to rapid teeth decay and gum disease. Do make an appointment with the dentist the next time you encounter a loose tooth.
