We will only recommend tooth extraction when necessary to maintain the optimal level of oral health. Some of the situations where tooth extraction is recommended include:
We will either need to pull or surgically remove your tooth. Pulling is only possible for those teeth that have fully erupted from the gum line. We numb the area around the tooth before removal. Then, clasping tools are used to hold onto the tooth as we shift it back and forth until it breaks free from the supportive bone and soft tissues. Surgical tooth extractions are necessary when the tooth is not fully erupted or otherwise unable to be pulled. In the simplest cases, we only need to remove a small amount of supportive tissue to extract the tooth. In other cases, our skilled periodontist, Dr. Karim will need to perform more complex tooth extraction procedures. With an experienced specialist in our office, we can easily perform all levels of tooth extraction quickly, safely, and effectively.
In most cases, Dr. Karim, our skilled periodontist, will perform tooth extraction procedures. With years of advanced training and education, Dr. Karim is able to complete even the most complex surgical tooth removal procedures. With a skilled periodontist on our team, patients will be completely safe and comfortable throughout the course of tooth extraction.
Following your tooth extraction procedure, we’ll provide you with an after-care plan personalized to your unique situation. There will likely be some discomfort, bleeding, and swelling that should begin to diminish after 48 hours. If you notice increasing pain, swelling, or sensitivity, call our office right away. If you need to have one or more extracted teeth replaced, our team will begin this restoration process as soon as possible after your tooth extraction.
