Dental extractions

What is a Dental Extraction?

A dental extraction (or exodontia) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone.

There are two types of extractions, simple and surgical. A simple extraction involves pulling a tooth that is clearly visible in the mouth. These extractions normally will only call for a local anesthetic.

The surgical extraction is required if the tooth is embedded in the jaw bone, or partially covered by jaw bone. A surgical extraction can be performed with a local anesthetic and nitrous oxide. In some cases, IV sedation or general anesthesia will be recommended.

How Do I Know if I Need a Dental Extraction?

Excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, and crowding can all require a tooth extraction. Those who get braces may need one or two teeth removed to provide room for their other teeth as they shift into place.

On children, may be required when baby teeth fail to fall out before permanent teeth come in. Additionally, those who are undergoing chemotherapy or are about to have an organ transplant may need compromised teeth removed in order to keep their mouth healthy.

Our dentists will never recommend extraction if there is a less invasive treatment option. Make sure you understand why extraction is recommended and what the procedure involves for you or your child.

Finally found a dentist I like and trust! They are very thorough here, the OD explained everything he needed to do and why, answered all my questions, addressed and fixed all my concerns, did a deep cleaning and even took care of my smallest concerns like a strange chip in my tooth and they take medi-cal!COVID UPDATE: Carol did my cleaning today and she was extremely thorough, sweet and communicated to me all of the issues she found, what was good, what wasn’t good and what I could work more on and the specific tools I needed. Appreciated her transparency and the dentist office has made changes to protect and keep everyone safe. For cleanings in particular they stopped using the machine that blows all the air around and opt for hand cleaning instead which I feel is more precise. Carol then explained if she needed the bigger tools she would use them but prefers to air on the side of caution and prefers hand cleaning anywayAll staff is always very nice and cool as well!
