NEED dental help?

When it comes to maintaining oral health, there are times when tooth extractions become necessary. At Pleasanton Dental Care, we understand that the thought of tooth extractions can be intimidating. Rest assured, we're here to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. 

Whether you're experiencing pain, overcrowding, or other dental issues, we have you covered.

What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction, referred to as exodontia, is a dental procedure focused on gently removing a tooth from its jawbone socket. Dentists suggest extractions for reasons like extensive decay, unrepairable damage, overcrowding, or creating room for orthodontic treatment.

The Importance of Tooth Extractions 

Tooth extractions play a vital role in upholding oral well-being and averting subsequent dental issues. In cases of severe damage or infection, extraction prevents the infection from spreading to nearby teeth and tissues. Furthermore, extracting overcrowded or misaligned teeth enhances overall dental alignment and prevents potential future problems.

Types of Tooth Extractions 

At Pleasanton Dental Care, we offer two main types of tooth extractions:

  • Simple Extractions: Simple extractions are typically performed on visible teeth that the dentist can easily access. This procedure is relatively straightforward and involves loosening the tooth with specialized instruments before removal.
  • Surgical Extractions: Surgical extractions are more complex and are required for teeth that are not easily accessible or have not fully erupted. This includes impacted wisdom teeth or teeth with curved or multiple roots.

Common Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are often advised by dentists for various common reasons. One such reason is severe decay, where a tooth has succumbed to extensive decay, rendering it beyond salvage with fillings or crowns. In such cases, extraction becomes a vital measure to halt the progression of decay and protect surrounding teeth and tissues. 

Additionally, irreparable damage to teeth, often resulting from severe cracks or fractures that extend beyond the scope of repair, may necessitate extraction as a means to prevent potential complications.

The Procedure 

Let's explore what you can expect during a tooth extraction:

Preparing for Extraction 

Before the extraction, our skilled dental team will discuss the procedure with you, answer any questions, and address any concerns you may have. X-rays might be utilized to evaluate the tooth's positioning and the structure of its roots.

During the Extraction

During the procedure, you will receive local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The dental practitioner will then gently remove the tooth using specialized instruments and techniques.

Aftercare and Recovery

After the extraction, our team will provide you with detailed post-operation care instructions. This includes information on managing any discomfort, dietary restrictions, and proper oral hygiene to promote healing.

How long does a tooth extraction procedure usually take?

A simple extraction may take around 20-40 minutes, while surgical extractions, like impacted wisdom teeth, may take longer.

Is tooth extraction painful? 

During a tooth extraction, you will receive local anesthesia to ensure you do not feel pain during the procedure. 

Are there any potential complications after a tooth extraction? 

While complications are rare, they can include infection, excessive bleeding, or dry socket (a condition where the blood clot in the socket is dislodged). Following our post-operative care instructions diligently and attending follow-up appointments can minimize these risks.

How soon can I resume normal eating and activities after a tooth extraction? 

Returning to normal activities depends on your individual healing process, but most patients can resume regular activities within a few days to a week after the procedure.
