Comfortable Tooth Extraction From an Encinitas Dentist

We Can Remove Teeth and Offer Restoration Options

Tooth extraction seems contrary to our goal of helping you save your smile yet in some extreme cases, it is necessary. Teeth that have been ravaged by periodontal disease or fractured by injury may be hopeless. San Dieguito Dental Group provides simple and surgical tooth extraction to ensure both oral health and overall health. We also offer sedation dentistry to protect your comfort during treatment by our Encinitas dentist.

  • How Can Tooth Extraction Help You?

    Why You Might Need Tooth Extraction

    • Severe decay
    • Tooth infection
    • As part of orthodontic treatment
    • Injured or fractured teeth
    • Presence of an extra tooth that must be removed for cosmetic reasons

    The Two Types of Tooth Extraction

    Simple tooth extraction is performed with forceps, using a gentle back and forth motion. Eventually, the tooth simply loosens from the connective tissue and slips out of the socket. With surgical removal, we must access the tooth from below the gum line for proper extraction, requiring incisions in the gum tissue. Sedation dentistry is typically administered for surgical extraction.

    The Importance of Tooth Restoration After Extraction

    Tooth extraction protects your oral health by removing an infected or decayed tooth but it creates a new set of issues, including:

    • Difficulty speaking properly
    • Inability to chew food well
    • Marred appearance due to gaps in smile
    • Loss of confidence
    • Bone loss

    Tooth Replacement Options After Tooth Extraction

    Our Encinitas dentist can restore your smile to its earlier appearance with dental implants. Implants are the closest replication of your natural teeth and offer a permanent, easy-to-maintain replacement. Dental implants preserve your appearance as well as your bone health while allowing you to smile, eat, and speak with confidence.
