Tooth Extractions Tampa
Tooth Removal | Having a Tooth Pulled in Tampa
You and Dr. Barbick, Dr. Langston, Dr. Bedi or Dr. Hamilton may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
Are you experiencing tooth pain from a decayed tooth?
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
To avoid these complications, in most cases, Drs. Barbick, Langston, Bedi or Hamilton will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
The Tooth Extraction Process
At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.
During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.
You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.
If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.
Sectioning a Tooth
Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

I have had several extractions in my lifetime with painful and some bad outcomes. This is my 2nd visit with Dr. Langston and without any reservation of mind, he extracted 4 teeth between 2 visits, and the experience was painless and recovery was fast. Pre-Op preparation is thorough and the briefing by Dr. Langston was informative and put me at ease in what to expect. The entire staff is courteous and professional.
