Tooth Extraction Leduc
Your dentist will usually use a simple extraction when the tooth is visible in the mouth. To be sure this is an appropriate method, your dentist will first take X-rays of your teeth and ask you about your medical history, including whether you are currently taking any medications.
You need a surgical extraction if your tooth is broken off at the gum line or it has not yet erupted. Only some general dentists are qualified to carry out surgical extractions, along with all oral surgeons.
The process involves cutting a small incision into your gum to access the tooth. Sometimes, it is also necessary to remove some of the bone around the tooth or cut the tooth into pieces to extract it. Although the procedure is more complex than a simple extraction, it is often possible to receive a surgical tooth extraction under local anesthetic. This may be administered through an injection or IV.

Exposure of Impacted Teeth
Topical fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay. We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels. Dentists and dental hygienists generally recommend that children have a professional application of fluoride twice a year during dental check-ups.
Systemic fluoride strengthens the teeth that have erupted as well as those that are developing under the gums. We gain systemic fluoride from most foods and our community water supplies. It is also available as a supplement in drop or gel form and can be prescribed by your dentist or physician. Generally, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children up through the teen years. It is very important to monitor the amounts of fluoride a child ingests. If too much fluoride is consumed while the teeth are developing, a condition called fluorosis (white spots on the teeth) may result.
Regular exams & cleaning
At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will perform the following:
Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
