Painless Tooth Extraction in Los Angeles

A tooth extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma, or crowding. Dental extraction may be necessary for an individual infected or damaged tooth or for 2-4 impacted wisdom teeth.

Pain-free Extraction of Teeth in Los Angeles

If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, your dentist will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow. In most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.

Here are some tips to follow to make recovery after tooth extraction easier: avoid anything that might prevent normal healing; don’t smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously; avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours; and follow the diet your Los Angeles dentist suggests. For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. If you experience swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag and call your dentist right away. Ask your dentist about pain medication. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don’t clean the teeth next to where the tooth was removed.

While the idea of tooth extraction and the imagery of pulling a tooth may be scary, having a dental extraction at your favorite Downtown Los Angeles dentist office River Dentistry is a safe, painless, modern, and fairly regular procedures and the follow up care (as recommended by your downtown LA dentist) is there for your benefit and comfort.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth in Los Angeles

Wisdom teeth, or as your expert LA dentist will call them, third molars, got their name because of being the last teeth to come in during young adulthood. As part of a dental visit, your dentist should examine you to determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned. Every patient is unique, but in general, wisdom teeth may need to be removed when there is evidence of changes or symptoms in the mouth associated with them.

The impacted wisdom teeth manifestations and reasons for pulling wisdom teeth may include infections, cysts, tumors, damage to adjacent teeth, gum disease, and tooth decay (if it is not possible or desirable to restore the tooth). Your Los Angeles oral surgeon or LA dentist may also recommend removal to prevent problems or for others reasons, such as when removal is part of an orthodontic, restorative or periodontal treatment plan.

Wisdom teeth that are not removed should continue to be monitored, because the potential for developing problems later on still exists. As with many other health conditions, as people age, they are at greater risk for health problems and that includes potential problems with their wisdom teeth. Regular dental visits are important so your dentist can evaluate not just your wisdom teeth but your overall oral health to help you prevent and manage dental disease and achieve optimal oral health.
