Tooth extractions, or removals, are generally done when teeth are damaged from decay or trauma and are unable to be saved or restored. At Oceanview Dental, tooth extractions are often performed to prevent decay and infection from spreading to your healthy teeth. Another common type of tooth extraction is the removal of your third molars, or wisdom teeth. Because wisdom teeth are the last to erupt from the gumline, there is often not enough room in the mouth for them to grow properly. Teeth become overcrowded or the wisdom teeth themselves become impacted or stuck.
Our dentists and dental team makes every effort to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during any tooth extraction treatment you undergo. In Oceanside, California, tooth extractions are performed under the supervision of Dr. Robert Miner, our skilled oral surgeon. In order to remove the tooth, we will numb the area with a local anesthetic. After the tooth is extracted, we will discuss your many cosmetic and restorative treatment options to replace the tooth and restore your smile to its natural beauty. We will also provide detailed instructions to care for your smile during the healing process.
At our dental office, we treat every tooth extraction with care and skill. If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We look forward to hearing from you!
