When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

There are several different reasons why a tooth may need to be removed:

  • Extensive decay that cannot be repaired with a filling or crown
  • A crack or fracture that has severely compromised the tooth structure
  • Tooth mobility caused by advanced gum disease
  • A dental abscess that cannot be addressed with root canal therapy
  • Insufficient space for proper tooth eruption

A Crowded Smile Can Benefit from Tooth Extraction

The Tooth Extraction Procedure

Our Los Algodones, Mexico, dentist strives to provide patients with the latest in modern dentistry, from his use of advanced treatment methods to innovative technologies. Dr. Valenzuela can remove a compromised tooth with minimal discomfort. For patients who may be reluctant to seek treatment due to unpleasant experiences with another dentist in the past, we can make sure that you experience a relaxing procedure with the help of a number of sedation options.

Day of Procedure

Anesthetic

To begin the process, Dr. Valenzuela will numb the gums with local anesthesia to keep you comfortable during treatment. 

Tooth Extraction

Next, he will access the tooth for removal. If the tooth is mostly intact with sufficient structure visible above the gum line, he will simply loosen it and gently lift it from the socket using forceps. If the tooth is impacted, fractured, or severely broken, he may need to make an incision, remove small amounts of bone, or divide the tooth into segments for easier extraction. 

Sutures and Gauze

Depending on the location of the extraction site, our dentist may use sutures to help limit bleeding. For wisdom teeth, Dr. Valenzuela may pack the extraction site with gauze to manage bleeding and allow a blood clot to form. We will supply you with gauze so you can address post-op bleeding while the blood clot forms.

Healing and Recovery

Any discomfort you experience after extraction can usually be managed with prescription medications or over-the-counter pain relievers. Slight swelling is typical and can be reduced with the application of a cold compress to the external jaw every 20 minutes for the first 24 hours. During the first two days, heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided, as strenuous activity can elevate the heart rate and result in increased bleeding, swelling, and discomfort.

Patients should also plan to eat a soft food diet for the first few days to minimize tenderness. After your procedure, Dr. Valenzuela in Los Algodones, Mexico,will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-surgical instructions. Closely following these guidelines can help you experience a quick and comfortable recovery.

Smile Restoration Options

Following a dental extraction, you may be wondering what your options are when it comes to restoring your smile. With the exception of wisdom teeth, we always recommend replacing teeth that have to be removed. Dr. Valenzuela in Los Algodones, Mexico,is a dentist who can provide you with a number of options, from dental implants to more traditional methods.

A single tooth can be restored with an implant-supported crown, while more widespread tooth loss can be addressed by an implant-supported dental bridge or denture, depending on the severity of your case. Traditional options include dentures and dental bridges. Both are an affordable dental option for patients who are missing a number of consecutive teeth, but they do not offer the same benefits of an implant-supported restoration. 

Implants: An Advanced Option Worth Considering

When you are missing teeth, it can compromise the function, health, and aesthetics of your smile. Over time, adjacent teeth will shift into the gaps left behind. This can significantly change your bite and have a negative impact on your dental health. There are several replacement options available, but for the right candidates, the best option is a dental implant.

Dental implants replace the roots of the missing teeth, which not only keeps a restoration firmly in place, but also prevents the jaw atrophy that would otherwise occur after tooth loss. Dental implants also provide unparalleled stability for restorations such as dentures and bridges. Implants require a minor surgery and several months of recovery, but they can provide lifelong benefits. Dr. Valenzuela can answer your questions about this solution and help determine if dental implants are right for you. His Los Algodones, Mexico, dental office can perform every stage of this procedure, from placement to restoration.
