Sometimes a rotten tooth or a broken tooth can be fixed with a filling, a new crown, or both. Dr. Joseph Fleming’s priority is to try to save a natural tooth whenever possible. Sometimes a tooth is too damaged or decayed to respond to treatment and must be removed. When this happens, count on his steady, skilled hands and anesthesia options to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Always choose Spear Education-trained Dr. Fleming for gentle, precise tooth extractions in Oklahoma City, OK.
After any tooth extraction, it’s critical that you take special steps to ensure the healing process goes as it should. A blood clot typically forms over an empty tooth socket during healing. If this doesn’t happen or if the blood clot fails, the bone and nerves below the socket become exposed. This results in a painful complication called dry socket. You can prevent dry socket and avoid unnecessary suffering by closely following all of the post-extraction guidelines Dr. Fleming provides!
