Simple or complex — we can help
Simple tooth extractions are performed under local anesthesia on visible teeth. Surgical extractions may be needed when the affected tooth is fractured, below the gum line, or it hasn’t yet fully erupted.
Why might I need a tooth extraction?
Tooth extractions are a last resort and are typically recommended when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be repaired, or if there is an issue with the surrounding gums or bone. Extractions may also be necessary for orthodontic treatment or to make room for a denture or other prosthetic device.
What should I do to prepare for my extraction?
Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your extraction, but some general tips include avoiding smoking, eating a light meal beforehand, and arranging for someone to drive you home after the procedure if you choose to have oral sedation.
Can I eat normally after a tooth extraction?
We typically recommend sticking to soft foods for the first few days following an extraction. We also recommend avoiding hot or spicy foods, alcohol, and smoking for at least 24 hours. We’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site as it heals, including recommendations for diet and oral hygiene.
What about my wisdom teeth?
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but many people do. Wisdom teeth can cause a number of problems, including overcrowding, infection, and decay. Many people also don’t have enough space in their mouth for their wisdom teeth to grow properly, which can lead to pain and discomfort. Dr. Chung will examine your teeth and provide an expert recommendation based on your unique needs.
