Tooth Extraction

Preserving natural teeth is our priority, but a severely damaged or decayed tooth may be too compromised to save.

In these cases, our dentists can perform a tooth extraction using gentle techniques and sedation to ensure your comfort.

If you need a tooth extraction, Dr. Jose Valenzuela in Los Algodones, Mexico, can provide an affordable, virtually painless procedure.

When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

There are several different reasons why a tooth may need to be removed at our Los Algodones dental office:
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 or infection that cannot be addressed with root canal therapy
Insufficient space for proper tooth eruption

We Can Meet All Your Dental Needs at Our Los Algodones, Mexico, Dental Clinic

Dr. Jose Valenzuela in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, will make every effort to save your teeth. However, extraction may be necessary if a tooth is severely damaged or decayed. If our dentists determine you must have an extraction, they will use the most gentle techniques in modern dentistry to ensure your comfort.

Dr. Valenzuela can then fill the gap left at the extraction site with an implant-supported restoration to maintain the integrity of your smile. Our dental clinic offers a number of options to replace lost teeth for patients from Mexicali, the U.S., and beyond. He will help you choose a solution that meets your needs.

The Tooth Extraction Procedure

Our Los Algodones, Mexico, dentists strive to provide patients with the latest in modern dentistry, from the use of advanced treatment methods to innovative technologies. Thanks to this approach, Dr. Valenzuela can handle even the most complex cases 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 sedation dentistry.

No matter what you need, you can expect our dental clinic to deliver world-class results at a much lower price than you would pay north of the border.

Prior to your dental treatment, Dr. Valenzuela will examine your mouth and take digital X-rays of your teeth and jaw. This will help him plan your extraction with precision.


Dr. Valenzuela will numb your gums with local anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your dental treatment.

Tooth Extraction

If the tooth is mostly intact with sufficient structure visible above the gumline, he will loosen it and gently lift it from the socket. 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

If needed, your dentist may use sutures to control bleeding. For wisdom teeth, Dr. Valenzuela may pack the extraction site with gauze to allow a blood clot to form. We will supply you with gauze so you can manage bleeding while the blood clot forms.

Healing and Recovery ​ After Your Dental Work

Any discomfort you experience after your dental work can usually be managed with prescribed 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 at our Mexicali office, Dr. Valenzuela will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-surgical instructions. Closely following these guidelines can help you experience a quick and comfortable recovery and minimize the chances of infection.

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 been 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 solutions.

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 An Advanced Option Worth Considering

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 dental bridges.

Implants require minor surgery and several months of recovery, but this dental work can provide lifelong benefits. Dr. Valenzuela can answer your questions about this solution and help determine if implants are right for you.

Dr. Valenzuela's Los Algodones, Mexico, dental office can perform every stage of this procedure, from placement to restoration.

The Cosmetic and Implant Center was outstanding. The staff were friendly,  professional and even before getting there they were responsive over email. My implant procedure went flawlessly and professionally. The price was what they first quoted me months in advance with no hidden or surprise fees or costs.
