Why might I need a tooth pulled?

Sometimes, despite their durability, permanent teeth may need to be extracted due to various reasons such as decay, trauma, or crowded teeth. Other factors like failed root canals, gum disease, or medical procedures like organ transplants may also necessitate extractions.

What is the procedure for extraction?

Before extracting a tooth, Dr. Hurtado takes a digital X-ray to assess the need for either a simple or surgical extraction. A simple extraction involves loosening the tooth with an elevator and gently removing it with forceps.

A surgical extraction is more complex, typically for impacted or broken teeth. It involves making a small cut in the gum, sometimes sectioning the tooth, and possibly removing surrounding bone.

Local anesthetic is used for both procedures. General anesthetic may be administered for multiple extractions, ensuring a pain-free experience.

When will I be fully healed from a tooth extraction?

Based on how many teeth you had taken out and your individual condition, healing usually takes one or two weeks. New bone and gum tissue will slowly replace the areas where your teeth were removed. It’s possible you could have trouble chewing or experience other pain and discomfort as you recover, but this will depend on the amount of dental work you have.

Every patient is different, so it’s best to contact Cesar Hurtado DDS to schedule a consultation to explore your options and any necessary follow-up procedures like crowns or dental implants.
