At Pearl Dentistry, we believe in the importance of preventive dentistry to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. Our dental team, including a periodontist, specializes in maintaining optimal oral health. We will explore all viable alternatives before recommending an extraction. Tooth extractions may include treatments such as dental fillings, root canals, or periodontal therapies, which are administered by our skilled periodontist to address the underlying issue and save your tooth. We prioritize conservative approaches and, with the expertise of our periodontist, work closely with you to determine the best course of action for your oral health.
Evaluation and X-rays: Our dental professionals will evaluate the condition of the tooth and surrounding structures through a thorough examination and X-rays to determine the best approach for extraction.
Anesthesia and Sedation: Local anesthesia will be administered to numb the extraction site and ensure your comfort during the procedure. Additional sedation options may be available to help you relax if needed.
Tooth Removal: Using specialized dental instruments, our skilled dentists will carefully and gently remove the tooth from its socket. In some cases, a small incision may be made in the gum tissue to access the tooth.
Socket Preservation: After the extraction, our dental team may recommend socket preservation techniques, such as bone grafting, to maintain the bone structure and prepare for future tooth replacement options.
Post-Extraction Care: Detailed post-operative instructions will be provided, including guidelines for pain management, swelling reduction, and proper oral hygiene during the healing process.
