Tooth Extractions Tampa

Tooth Removal | Having a Tooth Pulled in Tampa

You and Dr. Barbick, Dr. Bedi, Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Sybo or Dr. Watts 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, Sybo or Watts 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.

Dr. Hamilton and his nurses are fantastic. I had a bone graft as well as extractions, with IV sedation. They handled my sedation perfectly. I had no pain from my extractions. The bone grafting offered minimal discomfort. An Advil completely alleviated any discomfort. 24 hours later, no discomfort at all. The office staff is very efficient and helpful with insurance claims. They make the whole process very easy.

Dr. Hamilton and staff did a wonderful job with my 11 year old son. They made him feel comfortable every step of the way. They took time to explain the surgery and what to expect after. They following week for the follow-up appointment was fantastic as well. They even cleared him to eat popcorn! 🙂

Fantastic place. Honestly I'm a bit sad he's only an oral surgeon as I would drop any other dentist I have gone to so I could work with him and his staff full time! Absolutely amazing and I've recommended him to everyone in the area I know of that needs any work. They made sure that I knew all the details I needed to before getting started on anything. I have not had any dental work that has been faster, painless, or expertly done so definitely very highly recommended!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! I am a total chicken when it comes to dental work. The staff here is wonderful. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. Dr. Hamilton was amazing. He explained the procedure before hand and was super gentle during the extraction. Before I knew it, it was over. PAINLESS! I am forever grateful!!

Here’s just how good Dr Bedi is: He phoned me personally at home to inquire about my recovery...where else can you find a dentist that concerned about a patient’s wellbeing. During the procedure Dr Bedi’s demeanor was quite casual, giving me, the patient, a genuine feeling of great comfort. Hey, how many dental patients can say that about their dentist? Give this guy a promotion and pay raise immediately.
