Types of Extractions

Basic Tooth Extractions

Basic tooth extractions are the most common and usually involve loosening visible teeth with special tools and extracting them from the socket. We use a local anesthetic to numb and reduce pain during the process.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

If your wisdom teeth are unhealthy, Dr. Chaz will perform a tooth extraction to safeguard your oral health.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the 3rd, and last group of molars most individuals get when they are around twenty years old. The growth of these teeth can be trouble-free for some individuals. However, for others, this set of teeth can become impacted, i.e., it can get stuck and can't fully erupt through the gum line.

Such teeth can trigger several problems. If they're only partway through the gum line, they can trap food and bacteria that cause cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Impacted wisdom teeth can also crowd or damage other teeth, as well as the jawbone. In most cases, we recommend extracting impacted wisdom teeth.

Pain Relief

Before we extract your tooth, we use local anesthesia to numb the part around the tooth. This way, you won't feel any pain during the procedure. Local anesthesia is usually given through injections, but it can also be delivered using a topical gel or cream.

Surgical Extraction

Dr. Chaz will make an incision in your gums to expose the tooth. He will then loosen the tooth and remove it from your mouth. Sometimes, they may need to remove the tissue or bone around the tooth to extract it.

Afterward, your oral surgeon will close the incision with stitches, and you will be given instructions on how to care for the extraction area. Recovery from a surgical extraction usually takes a few days.
