Gentle Tooth Extractions

Dr. Villalobos and Dr. Meadows practice conservative dentistry, and will only recommend extractions if there is no way to save your tooth.

At Coronado Dental Associates, we use the latest techniques and tools and offer numbing and sedation dentistry to keep you feeling safe and comfortable throughout your treatment.

Tooth extractions can help you get relief from your discomfort and pain, and prevent further oral health complications.

After your treatment, Dr. Villalobos and Dr. Meadows can discuss your options for restorative dentistry and tooth replacement, such as dental implants.

Why Would I Need to Have a Tooth Extracted?

Improper eruption of wisdom teeth is the most common reason for tooth extractions. The wisdom teeth grow in between the ages of 17-25 in most people, which is much later than the rest of the teeth.

Because of this, this final set of four molars can fail to erupt all the way, may damage nearby teeth, or may even grow in sideways or cause other complications. Wisdom tooth extraction is often recommended to prevent these issues.

Tooth extractions may also be required if a tooth has been seriously damaged by oral trauma, or has been destroyed by chronic oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease. 

In some cases, tooth extractions may also be needed to prepare for certain restorative procedures, like the placement of a dental implant or the denture fitting process.

What Can I Expect From the Extraction Process?

The most common type of tooth extraction is called a basic or “simple” extraction. The process is very simple, and after your mouth has been prepared, it takes only a few minutes to remove your tooth at Coronado Dental Associates. 

To begin the process, you will need local anesthesia to ensure you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows will use a numbing spray and a needle to deeply numb the nerves and tissue surrounding the extraction site. We also offer sedation options that can help you feel more comfortable during your appointment. 

Once your mouth is fully numb and you can’t feel anything, Dr. Meadows or Dr. Villalobos will begin to use special dental tools to loosen the tooth in its socket. Using these tools, the periodontal ligament that holds the tooth to the bone and gum tissue will be loosened.

After the tooth has been loosened, the next step is to pull it out with a set of dental forceps. Then, the area will be cleaned and sanitized, and the extraction site will be sutured to ensure proper blood clot formation and healing.

How Long Does It Take to Heal & Recover?

You can expect the recovery process to take up to 2 weeks. We recommend that you take at least 1-2 days off of work or school after your tooth extraction to ensure you can relax and take things easy while you recover from surgery.

Throughout the recovery process, you will also need to follow special instructions and steps provided to you by Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows. This will help keep you comfortable, minimize pain, and speed up the healing process, so make sure to follow their instructions to the letter.
