Even though it is generally best to try to preserve your natural teeth, sometimes tooth extractions are unavoidable. For instance, teeth may require removal if they are heavily decayed, are irreparably broken, or have advanced-stage periodontal disease. Teeth might also need to be removed if they are impacted or crowded. At Alondra Dental Care, we are highly skilled in performing tooth extractions safely and gently with the goal of maintaining your dental health.
During your extraction procedure, Dr. Abad will numb your jaw bone, the tooth being worked on, and surrounding gums using an anesthetic. Then, Dr. Abad will proceed to remove the tooth.
At this time, you may feel pressure, as the extraction process involves widening your tooth socket to remove the tooth. However, you should never feel pain, as your local anesthetic will numb your pain-transmitting nerves in the area. If you ever feel pain during your extraction procedure, we will immediately administer an extra anesthetic to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.
