What is Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction is performed when all other options to save the tooth have been exhausted and must be removed. In an emergency, Dr. Desai encourages patients to reach out if they experience any of the issues below to alleviate their pain in a timely manner. If a tooth is not properly examined, symptoms could worsen and threaten the surrounding teeth and gum tissue.
Tooth Extraction Addresses
- Impacted and painful wisdom teeth
- Extra teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection or risk of infection
- Gum disease
What to Expect with an Emergency Tooth Extraction
Dr. Desai will meet with the patient to promptly address their dental issues. He will perform a short oral exam and any necessary imaging tests to assess the status of the tooth and discuss the symptoms with the patient. Once the issue is identified, Dr. Desai will proceed with the tooth extraction with the utmost care and precision. Dr. Desai will tactfully numb the area to prepare the region for the extraction to minimize patient discomfort. He will delicately remove the tooth to alleviate and treat all symptoms. Once the procedure is finished, he will schedule a postoperative appointment to monitor the patient’s recovery and recommend the next best course of action.
