Tooth extraction is a straightforward procedure your dentist performs when decay, disease, trauma, or crowding can affect your oral health. Extracting one tooth is quite common, but sometimes, patients need more than one tooth pulled.
Dr. Vimal Patel and our team at Prosper Smiles Family Dentistry are experts in gentle, painless tooth extractions. If you have a decayed, diseased, or wisdom tooth that needs extraction, please get in touch with our dental office in Prosper, TX today. We’ll be happy to schedule a consultation for you so Dr. Patel can assess your situation and determine the best treatment for your needs.
Removing Multiple Teeth
Extracting multiple teeth during the same procedure is rare, though it’s sometimes necessary for patients with severe tooth decay. Pulling multiple teeth at once is a little bit more complicated than removing a single tooth. However, you can rest assured knowing you’re in the most capable and experienced hands.
There isn’t a clear rule for how many teeth a dentist can safely extract in one appointment because this varies on the patient’s unique oral health situation and the dentist’s recommendations. Some dentists may remove a few teeth at a time, while others may recommend a full-mouth extraction.
A full-mouth extraction usually occurs when a patient has severe periodontal disease that can lead to excessive decay and infection that we can only stop by removing the teeth. Also, removing multiple teeth at once may require your dentist to reshape the jawbone to prepare your mouth for dentures, a dental bridge, or another tooth replacement.
Our Approach to Gentle, Pain-Free Tooth Extractions
Our Prosper Smiles Family Dentistry team will not extract teeth without first discussing your options. We only recommend dental extractions as a last resort to protect your oral health and wellness, so we do not take this procedure lightly. Whether we remove one tooth or several teeth, we will have a treatment plan before the procedure, including personalized and natural-looking tooth replacement options. The only time we don’t need to replace a tooth is if the patient has wisdom teeth or overcrowding.
Before we start the procedure, we will use sedation and a local anesthetic to numb the area and prevent pain and discomfort. While the patient is under sedation, we monitor their vitals and ensure they remain comfortable, relaxed, and safe throughout the treatment.
