Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are a common dental procedure performed to remove teeth that are severely damaged, decayed or causing crowding. Our oral surgeon and team provide professional tooth extractions in Martinez and Oakland, California, ensuring our patients receive the highest level of care and comfort during the process.

When is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
There are several conditions that may necessitate a tooth extraction, including:

  • Severe Decay: When a tooth is beyond repair through fillings or crowns.
  • Infection: To prevent the spread of infection to other areas of the mouth.
  • Impacted Teeth: Particularly wisdom teeth that have no room to emerge properly.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: To create space for teeth being moved into their correct position.

The Extraction Process
Dr. Brandon Kang and our team ensure that the tooth extraction process is as comfortable and pain-free as possible:

  • Consultation and Evaluation: A thorough examination and X-rays to plan the best course of action.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is used to numb the area around the tooth to be extracted.
  • Extraction: The tooth is carefully and gently removed from its socket.

Post-Extraction Care
Proper care after a tooth extraction is crucial for healing:

  • Follow Aftercare Instructions: To reduce the risk of infection and promote healing.
  • Rest: Limit activity to encourage the healing process.
  • Pain Management: Use medications as prescribed to alleviate discomfort.
