TOOTH EXTRACTION

AN OVERVIEW

In most cases, tooth extractions are performed as a last restore solution. Dr. Yousefi will explore other options before extracting a tooth.

Your Woodland Hills Dentist Dr. Yousefi performs routine extractions under local anesthetic or sedation in our comfortable 91364 dental office. Dr. Yousefi will work with you to determine if you are in need of a tooth replacement after the extraction. If a tooth extraction is needed due to overcrowding or wisdom teeth complications, patients will likely not need a tooth replacement.

REASONS FOR TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

Extensive Tooth Decay: In advanced cases of a tooth decay, a simple tooth extraction may be the only option. If the tooth can not be saved using conservative measures, then the tooth may need to be extracted.

Periodontal Disease: Periodontal disease can have determinantal effects on your gums and teeth. For patients with extensive damage, Dr. Deckard may need to perform a tooth extraction.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth: In most cases, impacted wisdom teeth will need to be extracted. Impacted wisdom teeth are at a higher risk of causing infection, tooth pain, or severe tooth damage to neighboring teeth.

Overcrowding: Overcrowding of the teeth can lead to complex bite disorders, crooked teeth, increased risk of tooth decay, excessive wear on the enamel, and jaw pain. Removing overcrowded teeth can help alleviate painful or uncomfortable symptoms as well as improve your oral health.

TOOTH EXTRACTION- WHAT TO EXPECT

Typically, a tooth extraction can be completed in one visit to our Woodland Hills dental office. Dr. Yousefi will work with you to ensure your treatment is comfortable and effective. The appropriate sedation option will be discussed prior to your visit.

A local anesthetic is applied. Dr. Yousefi will carefully extract the affected teeth. Once removed, the extraction site is cleaned and sutured to allow for proper healing.

Replace Extracted Teeth

In some cases, extracted teeth will need to be replaced. Wisdom teeth don’t need to be replaced once they are extracted. Drs. Yousefi and Raz offer a full range of tooth replacement options in our Woodland Hills Dental Office.

When applicable, Drs Yousefi and Raz will recommend a dental implant to replace an extracted tooth. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth root. A dental implant can be used to secure a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. Dr. Yousefi will work with patients to determine which tooth replacement option best suits their needs.
