Why Tooth Extraction?

When a natural tooth can no longer be kept in place due to advanced decay, cracks or other reasons, an extraction may be indicated. During this process, the oral surgeon will use an anesthetic to make certain the patient is comfortable. After the tooth extraction site has healed, the patient may be referred to a prosthodontist at our Phoenix or Gilbert location for dental implants.

Expectations

It can be intimidating. It can provoke anxiety. It can even be scary. For most people getting oral surgery is a daunting prospect. We don’t want to downplay that: That’s a normal reaction. It’s perfectly natural to have some anxiety at the thought of having surgery performed on your mouth.

History

Dentistry became more commonplace over time, but its professionals came from a different industry altogether. The first dentists were barbers! In Europe barbers didn’t just cut hair, they also did tooth extractions. Much of the knowledge and methods of these “barber-surgeons” became more widespread after 1575. This is when Ambrose Pare publishes his Complete Works. Known as the Father of Surgery, Pare’s book contains all kinds of practical information about tooth extractions, treating tooth decay and how to fix jaw fractures.
