ORAL SURGERY EXPERT IN VISTA CA
You and our doctors may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken beyond repair. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. Teeth can be removed with local anesthetic in oral surgery, or you may choose to go to sleep for the procedure. In either case, tooth removal should not be a traumatic experience. At North County Dental Care in Vista, California, we pride ourselves on doing our best to make sure that you are comfortable during oral surgery .
During dental extractions, you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth to widen the socket for removal. You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves that transfer pain. However, the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected. Many teeth are simply extracted with elevators and forceps. Some teeth, however, may be broken off below the gumline or are too big to remove in one piece. When this occurs, incisions may be made in the gums to expose the tooth to be extracted. It may also require the removal of some of the surrounding bone or sectioning the tooth into several pieces to be removed one at a time. This is commonly done when a tooth is firmly anchored in its socket, when the root is curved, and when the socket can’t expand enough to remove the tooth.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that removes one or more wisdom teeth. If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have enough room to grow (known as an impacted wisdom tooth), a patient will feel pain and may develop an infection. Wisdom tooth extraction is done by an oral surgeon in our Vista, California office.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, jaw joint, and shifting teeth, all of which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, our specialized dental team will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as options for the replacement of the extracted tooth, if applicable.
