Dental Extractions in West Hollywood

Dental Extractions in West HollywoodA dental extraction refers to the removal of a tooth that is decayed, impacted, broken, or otherwise unhealthy. In some cases, teeth may also need to be extracted before orthodontic treatment. While Dr. Ghasri and Dr. Afar, our experts on dental extractions in West Hollywood, prefer to use dental extractions as a last resort, we understand that it is necessary in certain situations. That is why we work hard to make the entire process as comfortable as possible for our patients when they do need an extraction.

An impacted wisdom tooth is one of the most common reasons an extraction may be necessary. When a wisdom tooth pushes against other teeth or grows at an awkward angle under the gums, it can lead to misalignments, pain and discomfort, and infection. Extracting impacted wisdom teeth before they can cause complications is generally the best option. Other common reasons for dental extractions include severely decayed teeth which cannot be restored with fillings or crowns, broken teeth, and extra teeth beneath the gumline.

Simple extractions are generally performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area directly around the tooth. Sedatives may be available if you suffer from dental anxiety or feel nervous about the procedure. Our West Hollywood dental extraction specialists will then carefully remove the tooth. If a surgical extraction is necessary, our experts for dental extraction in West Hollywood may perform the procedure under general anesthesia. Our dentists will then make a surgical incision in order to more easily access the tooth that is embedded beneath the gum.
