When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Tooth Extraction

Whenever we think of a tooth extraction, most of us might think of wisdom teeth, but there are certain instances when a tooth extraction is necessary in cases of irreparable tooth damage.

At Manhattan Dental Care Studio we believe that it is the dentist’s job to be as conservative as possible, so a tooth extraction will only be an option we’ll consider when it presents the best possible solution for the patient’s long-term oral health plan.

Signs you might be in need of a tooth extraction procedure include:

• Moderate to Severe Tooth Pain
• Jaw Pain or Joint Stiffness
• Swollen Gums
• Gum Disease Affecting Surrounding Area

We might suggest a tooth extraction if a tooth has experienced severe decay, infection, to help clear a path for an impacted tooth, to prevent overcrowding, or as a method of treatment after an accident or trauma.

However, having a tooth extraction does not have to be a traumatic experience. We’re happy to provide options to patients needing tooth extractions in Los Angeles, CA.

What to Expect from a Tooth Extraction Procedure

We provide a comfortable ambience at Manhattan Dental Care Studio, where the focus is put on you.

We begin our tooth extraction procedure by applying an anesthetic, which will numb the mouth and minimize any discomfort. For patients who experience anxiety, we can provide additional sedation techniques geared toward making the procedure as comfortable for you as possible.

A certain amount of bleeding, pain, and swelling is perfectly normal and will resolve quickly. We’ll also provide all of the follow-up care you need to ensure the treatment is successful.
