At Refuah Family Dental, we are proud to offer tooth extractions to our patients. Tooth extractions can be necessary for many reasons. Some teeth are too diseased to save.
There are times when a tooth is too damaged. We also like to remove teeth if your mouth is overcrowded. We will always do a thorough examination with x-rays to determine the best course of action for you.
We will go through your options so we can make the right decision for you and your mouth. If we decide you need an extraction, we will numb the area prior to starting.
We will then pull the tooth. There is usually a small amount of bleeding because your mouth will form a blood clot to fix the area. The aftercare of your mouth is important. We will go over the correct way to care for your mouth after a tooth removal. Your mouth may be sore for a few days as it heals.
We do not recommend smoking, drinking with a straw, or eating foods that may aggravate your mouth. You are going to have to continue to take care of the rest of your teeth, so you will just have to be extra careful around your missing tooth. We are here for you if you have any problems after surgery. Some people have extra discomfort and pain, so we can recommend certain pain medications. Some people notice swelling in the area, and they need to come in and be seen.
Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. Here at Refuah Family Dental, we are proud to offer our clients the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services.
Did you know …orthodontics can not only help your smile, prevent cavities, and improve your ability to bite and chew, but in some cases it has improved people’s ability to speak clearly. Our orthodontists treat malocclusions, which are often called bad bites. This is when you bite down and your teeth do not line up correctly. We also treat crooked teeth.
Orthodontists also focus on the development of the facial bones and jaw. A Healthy Mouth While orthodontics is sometimes considered mostly cosmetic, it is important to fix these problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or do not line up are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide.
They can also be hard to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line. The goal in treating problem teeth is to ensure a healthy mouth in the future. It is important to close any gaps between teeth and to make sure the teeth all line up correctly. Sometimes teeth are crooked and need to be straightened. Orthodontics can also improve eating and even a patient’s speech in some cases. How can these problems be fixed? Braces are the most common treatment, though we also treat our clients with headgear, plates, surgery, and more.
