What Is Extractions?

Are you experiencing tooth pain or discomfort that is affecting your daily life? If so, you may need to consider getting an extraction. At Arch Dental, we offer high-quality and safe extraction services to help you alleviate your tooth pain and maintain good oral health. Our experienced dentists and state-of-the-art facilities ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.

Why Consider an Extraction?

There are several reasons why an extraction may be necessary. Some common reasons include:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: If a tooth is decayed beyond repair, extraction may be the best option to prevent the spread of decay to other teeth.
  • Impacted Teeth: If a tooth is impacted or is growing in an unnatural position, extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage or discomfort.
  • Crowding: If there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate all of the teeth, extraction may be necessary to create more room.
  • Gum Disease: In advanced cases of gum disease, extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage to the gum tissue and underlying bone.


Root Canals

What is the process for a root canal procedure and how long does it take?

Are you in pain and experiencing discomfort in your tooth? It might be time to consider a root canal. A root canal is a common dental procedure that removes the infected or damaged nerve and pulp of a tooth to prevent further pain, decay, and infection. At Arch Dental in Northampton, MA, our skilled and experienced dentists provide exceptional root canal services to help restore the health and function of your tooth.

Understanding the Need for a Root Canal

The nerve and pulp of a tooth are located in the center of the tooth, surrounded by the dentin and enamel. The pulp is responsible for supplying blood and oxygen to the tooth, but when it becomes infected or damaged, it can cause severe pain, swelling, and other symptoms. A root canal procedure is necessary to remove the damaged or infected nerve and pulp and preserve the remaining tooth structure.

What to Expect During a Root Canal Procedure

Our root canal procedures are performed in a comfortable and relaxing environment, using the latest dental technologies and techniques. During the procedure, your dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth to ensure your comfort. Then, a small opening is made in the top of the tooth to access the nerve and pulp. The damaged or infected tissue is then removed, and the interior of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

Once the interior of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, a filling material is placed in the tooth to fill the empty space and prevent bacteria from re-entering. In some cases, a dental crown may be placed over the tooth to protect it and restore its function.

What Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves adding new bone or a substitute material to an area where there is a lack of bone. Bone grafting is typically done to prepare the site for a future dental implant or to restore jaw function and stability. Bone grafting can be done using materials similar to your bone or synthetic materials designed to mimic the properties of natural bone.

Why is Bone Grafting Necessary?

Bone loss is a common problem due to several factors, including gum disease, injury, or extractions. Losing bone can affect your jaw’s stability and function, making it difficult to chew or speak properly. It can also make it difficult to place a dental implant, as there may not be enough bone to support it.

How Does Bone Grafting Work?

The bone grafting procedure typically takes place under local anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the extent of the procedure and your personal preferences. During the procedure, the dentist will carefully prepare the graft area and place the material into the site. The grafted area will then be allowed to heal and fuse with the surrounding bone over time. This can take several months, during which the patient will need to avoid putting pressure on the grafted area.

What are the Benefits of Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting provides several benefits, including:

  • Increased jaw stability and function
  • Improved appearance and aesthetics
  • Better chances of success for future dental implant placement
  • Improved chewing and speaking capabilities
