Tooth Extractions Tampa

Tooth Removal | Having a Tooth Pulled in Tampa

You and Dr. Barbick, Dr. Bedi, Dr. Hamilton, Dr. McCaskey, Dr. Watts, Dr. Yuan or Dr. Zastrow 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?

Call Tampa Office Phone Number 813- 264-2286 with questions or to make an appointment.

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, Bedi, Hamilton, McCaskey, Watts, Yuan or Zastrow 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.

Had an appointment with Dr. Zastrow today. She was very thorough, and took the time to ensure I understood the options and the risks with the associated procedure. Her staff was just as thorough with explaining future appointments and costs. What a pleasure to deal with medical professionals that cares that much about their patients ! I would highly recommend !

Dr. Barbick is Amazing! Broken down root canaled back molar had been giving me a lot of pain. Dr. Barbick and Sherry made me very comfortable and assured me everything would be ok. I have bad anxiety from previous horrible dental experiences but I was awake for the procedure under local anesthetic. The procedure was very fast. I was done in no time and I didn’t feel a thing. The experience from making the appointment to being greeted at the front door to pre-procedure was a seamless pleasure. I will absolutely see Dr. Barbick for all of my future procedures.

I thought dr. Bedi and his team were the most professional i have ever seen. No pain .no problem afterward Im usually a little hesitant about going to an new dentist.but regular dentist was not equipped to do a wisdom tooth extraction.these guys are young and professional.with the newest technology. Ty Dr.Bedi and team.you would be crazy to go any place else .

This place is awesome! I went in VERY anxious. To the point where we talked about rescheduling to be sedated. After talking to Dr. Barbick and Sherry I went through with the extraction. They were both great! They talked me through the whole procedure and explained everything thoroughly. I am so happy I went there for my procedure. Thank you!

Dr. Hamilton, Nessma, Amber and Debbie make a great team. I went in to extract all 4 of wisdom teeth. I went in with a lot of preconceived notions about how painful it would be. However, this was the most painless procedure that I have ever had. So, if you are like me and not a big fan of surgery, this is the right team for you. 'Ayo

Dr. Bedi and his staff are just great, and take care of every detail to the max. Dr. Bedi and his nurse were so patient with me, a 91 year old that takes blood thinners, and has a hearing problem. They allowed my wife to be in the room to answer questions before the dental procedure. The amazing thing was there was very little bleeding and that stopped completely within a few hours. Everyone there, including the people in the office were great. Dr. Bedi is the very best ! I still can't get over how nice and patient the nurse was. Tom and Evie Wells
