Patients ask, “What are tooth extractions and why are they necessary?”

Dental Extractions Los Angeles

You may be wondering exactly what are tooth extractions and how extractions may impact your oral health. For residents of Los Angeles and North Hollywood, CA, Dr. Fadi Elzayat and Pacific Implant Group offer dental extractions and immediate implant placement to avoid additional stress, trauma, and recovery for the patient.

Common reasons for tooth extractions

Preserving the health of your natural teeth is one of your dentist’s goals. Unfortunately, there are times when problems lead to the need for extractions. Dental issues requiring extractions may include:

  • Wisdom teeth that have become impacted or are affecting adjacent teeth
  • A tooth that has broken below the gum line
  • Abscessed tooth
  • In preparation for dentures or orthodontics

What to expect from your tooth extraction

If your dentist has determined that extraction is the best option to maintain oral health, your dental team will guide you through the process. After identifying the teeth that need to be removed, a local anesthetic is used to keep the patient comfortable throughout the procedure. Using precise techniques and gentle force, the tooth can be extracted while maintaining the health of your gums and bone.

 

For patients desiring a dental implant, the optimal time to place it is immediately following the extraction. The implant is placed in the same spot as the extracted tooth so the bone and gums can heal around it. This helps ensure a smooth recovery period and a sturdy replacement. Benefits of immediate implant placement include:

  • Faster recovery as the tissue heals around the new implant
  • Less trauma to the mouth since the extraction and implantation are performed as one procedure instead of as two separate ones

If you need dental extractions or implants, contact Pacific Implant Group. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Fadi Elzayat today. (818) 975-3888
