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?

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, 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.

This was the best dental experience I EVER had in all my 57 years, and I've had about 20... Dr. Bedi and his staff are the most kind professional people I've ever had the pleasure of going to. I only had to take 3 pain pills over a 2 day period, there was very little pain. Sleep sedation is the BEST way to have multiple teeth extracted, especially when they are difficult extractions. I highly recommend Dr. Bedi for any sleep sedation procedure, or implants.

I had a high level of anxiety coming in, oh boy. Proceure all done! Awesome group of people, totally. Walking in and greeted my fears began to fade. Very professional at the same time very comforting which made my anxious self start to relax. Dr Mike did his thing and there you have it another successful no pain procedure was completed. Kennedy is an angel, calm cool and very sweet like the rest of the group. You all are fun keep up the great work!

I had to have two back molars extracted. Lower left and upper right. I have to tell you, they made the whole experience absolutely wonderful. For not having insurance they were very reasonable priced. They made me feel very comfortable and I was in and out in 30 minutes. Dr. Hamilton is the best. I took a couple Motrin after the extractions and have had no pain since. Great job and wonderful staff. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs an oral surgeon. Thank you so much.
