Extractions

Tooth extraction is only considered as a treatment option if Dr. Mulandi is unable to save your tooth with more conservative treatment methods.

Some of the most common reasons to have a tooth extracted include:

  • Traum has resulted in partial tooth loss, and removing the remaining pieces is the most logical step
  • The tooth is causing infection to spread to the rest of your mouth
  • Extra teeth, such as wisdom teeth or overlapping eye teeth
  • As part of an orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry treatment plan
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Extensive tooth decay

Although extraction isn’t the desired outcome, our staff will ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

Tooth Extraction

The Extraction Process

To prepare for the procedure, Dr. Mulandi ensures your comfort by first numbing the area surrounding the tooth. For impacted teeth, he will then remove any necessary bone and gum tissue. Only after confirming with you that you are comfortable will he proceed to loosen and then remove your tooth.

Following the procedure, Dr. Mulandi will gently place a gauze pad over the clot, which will naturally form over your tooth socket. In some cases, usually if your tooth was impacted, he may apply sutures to aid with healing. Dr. Mulandi will instruct you on proper home care. It’s important to follow directions exactly to avoid infection and other complications. Swelling and discomfort may persist for a few days.

Once the site has healed, it is time to consider the type of restoration you want to fill the gap left by the procedure. A dental implant, bridge, or partial denture are some of the more popular options to consider.
