The Purpose of Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are dental procedures designed to preserve your oral health by removing problematic teeth. At Blum and Isakov Dental, we perform extractions in a safe, comfortable, and relaxed manner to ensure your convenience. These extractions are often necessary when there's no other viable option to save a tooth.

Common Reasons for Extractions

Extractions become imperative for various reasons, including:

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth can cause discomfort and misalignment, necessitating removal.
  • Loose or Severely Decayed Teeth: Teeth affected by severe decay may be beyond repair.
  • Teeth that are Cracked or Broken Below the Gum Line: Such teeth pose infection risks and require extraction.
  • Stubborn Baby Teeth: In some cases, baby teeth may need extraction to facilitate proper eruption of permanent teeth.
  • Avoiding Additional Treatment: In certain situations, extracting a problematic tooth can help you avoid more extensive dental treatments.

Why Do We Require Tooth Extractions?

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often emerge misaligned or impacted, causing pain and discomfort. Removing them is a common preventive measure.
  • Loose or Severely Decayed Teeth: Teeth with extensive decay may not be salvageable. Extraction is necessary to prevent further complications.
  • Teeth that are Cracked or Broken Below the Gum Line: When a tooth is damaged below the gum line, extraction is often the only viable option to prevent infection.
  • Stubborn Baby Teeth: Some children retain their baby teeth longer than necessary, which can affect the eruption of permanent teeth. Extraction may be recommended.
  • Avoiding Additional Treatment: In certain situations, removing a problematic tooth can spare you from more extensive and costly dental treatments down the road.

What Happens During a Tooth Extraction?

The Role of Anesthesia and Sedation

Your comfort is our priority. We offer various sedation options, ensuring you are at ease during the procedure.

The Extraction Procedure

Our skilled dentists will gently and efficiently remove the problematic tooth. If needed, sutures will be placed to close the gums, and gauze will be used to control bleeding.

Post-Extraction Care

Following the procedure, we'll ensure you're fully awake and comfortable. If you've undergone general sedation, we recommend having a friend or relative accompany you home.
