Drs. Chertok and Aguirre provide tooth extractions to remove damaged teeth from your mouth. Depending on your needs, our prosthodontists may coordinate this procedure with our oral surgeons to ensure your extraction is as smooth and gentle as possible.

What is a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is a common dental procedure performed to address various oral health issues. It involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. While the goal is always to save natural teeth, there are circumstances where extraction is the best option for the overall health and functionality of a patient’s mouth.

When is Tooth Extraction Recommended?

Tooth extractions are typically recommended in cases such as:

  • When a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be repaired
  • When there is severe gum disease (periodontitis) affecting the supporting tissues and bone, leading to tooth mobility
  • To eliminate overcrowding and make space for orthodontic treatment
  • Severe injury or trauma has caused significant damage to the tooth
  • Preparing to receive dental prostheses, such as dentures or implants, to ensure the best possible fit and function
  • You have impacted wisdom teeth causing pain, infection, cysts or other problems

The Tooth Extraction Procedure

The tooth extraction process begins with a thorough examination, including X-rays, to plan the best approach for removal. The area around the tooth is numbed using a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. For a simple extraction, the tooth is simply loosened using a special dental instrument and then removed. A surgical extraction, such as that needed for an impacted tooth or a tooth broken off at the gum line, involves making a small incision in the gum to access and remove the tooth. If your extraction is surgical or more complex, our prosthodontists will coordinate your care with our experienced oral surgeons.

We will also work closely with you after your procedure to help you recover. Post-op care is crucial for healing, and we advise you to follow a soft diet, avoid smoking and practice gentle oral hygiene to prevent complications. Pain management, typically with over-the-counter pain relievers, is provided to ensure comfort during recovery. After you have recovered and depending on your needs, our prosthodontists will discuss tooth replacement options with you to help you regain your smile.
