What are the benefits of Tooth Extractions?

Even if you’re in pain, we realize concern over procedure pain may have made you delay getting your tooth extraction At Lexington, we will ensure your tooth removal is as painless as possible. On top of that, here are the benefits from tooth extraction:

Pain relief

In many instances, an extraction means relief from tooth pain. Whether it’s from trauma, decay, or something else, you will be free from the pain of the tooth once it is removed.

Protect other teeth

A tooth extraction helps stop damage, decay, and infection from spreading, and even eliminate bacteria. If needed, our doctors will ensure you take an antibiotic to aid this process.

Preventative

A dentist may recommend a tooth extraction before you are even experiencing pain as a precautionary measure, such as when there is not enough space for wisdom teeth to grow in.

Room for a new smile

Pain or infections aren’t the only reason to get a tooth extracted. If you are missing some teeth already and considering implants or dentures, a tooth extraction can make room for your new, stronger smile.
