Some of the most common services provided here at the office of Allan D. Schulman DDS & Associates are our Glen Burnie tooth extractions. The reason tooth extractions are so common is because teeth can be in need of extraction for a number of reasons. Often, we use of Glen Burnie tooth extractions if there is a tooth in advanced state of decay that cannot be restored properly. Tooth decay is a serious problem that affects many people of all ages. Tooth decay occurs as a result of certain bacteria in our mouths, like tartar and plaque, which release acids that eat away at the enamel of our teeth and leave cavities behind. When tooth decay is not treated in its early stages, it only gets worse and worse, to the point where restorative techniques like dental fillings, root canal therapy, or dental crowns are ineffective in mitigating the problem. It is at that point that one of our Glen Burnie tooth extractions is the option of choice. Another common reason we will use one of our Glen Burnie tooth extractions is to address problems with wisdom teeth. Your wisdom teeth are your final set of permanent molars, and they typically begin to erupt later in the teenaged years or during early adulthood. Unfortunately, the wisdom teeth hardly ever come in without any problems. They can be impacted, infected, push adjacent teeth out of place, and more, and so the experts here at Dr. Allan D. Schulman & Associates typically recommend that wisdom teeth be extracted in order to save yourself from issues down the road. When we perform one of our Glen Burnie tooth extractions, we use anesthetics tailored to the procedure at hand and your medical history in order to ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. One the extraction is over, we will go over healing protocol with you in order to keep you comfortable and happy throughout the healing process. We can also discuss options for tooth replacement when applicable.
