What is Dental Extraction?

Dental extraction is the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the bone.

There are various circumstances under which a dental extraction might be required. One frequent situation is when tooth decay becomes severe, beyond the point of being treatable with fillings or root canals.

Sometimes, teeth must be removed if they’re causing overcrowding or misalignment in the mouth, which interferes with proper oral functionality. Also, a severe infection spreading from a damaged tooth to nearby teeth and gum tissue may necessitate extraction.

Impacted wisdom teeth often need to be removed because they can cause pain, swelling and other complications. Additionally, advanced gum diseases affecting the bone structure could require the removal of impacted teeth.

In our dental clinic, we usually carry out two types of tooth extraction procedures: simple extractions and surgical extractions. A simple extraction is performed when a tooth has become loose due to either decay or injury, and can be seen in the mouth.

We make the patient comfortable by administering local anesthesia, then use an instrument called an elevator to loosen the tooth followed by forceps for extraction.

On some occasions where a tooth might have broken off at gum level or hasn’t come through yet – which is often the case with wisdom teeth- surgical extractions become necessary. Here, we make a small cut into your gum to surgically remove the damaged or unseen tooth.

The initial step in tooth extraction is numbing the area to lessen any discomfort. Our oral surgeon then carefully loosens your tooth before deftly extracting it from its place, being especially mindful to alleviate pain or distress.

After the wisdom teeth removal, the area gets thoroughly sterilized and stitches may be applied for ideal healing conditions if necessary.

You will also receive detailed aftercare instructions post-extraction to ensure a swift recuperation devoid of complications. This meticulous approach distinctly positions us as a premier choice in Los Angeles for effective and comfortable dental treatment options.
