Optimal Oral Health
At NH Dentistry in Beverly Hills, CA, under the expert care of our oral surgeon, Dr. John Costandi, DDS, MD, tooth extractions are performed with the utmost precision and patient comfort. Our team understands that tooth extractions can sometimes be necessary to preserve overall oral health and maintain the integrity of your smile. With a commitment to advanced techniques and compassionate care, we aim to provide a seamless experience during this dental procedure.
A Healthier Smile
Tooth extractions involve the careful removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. This procedure is typically performed when a tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or impacted and cannot be repaired through other dental treatments. Additionally, tooth extractions may be necessary to create space for orthodontic treatments or prevent an infection from spreading.
Better Oral Health and Well-Being
While the idea of a tooth extraction may seem intimidating, this procedure can have several benefits for your overall oral health. Some advantages of tooth extractions include the following:
Eliminating Pain and Discomfort
Severely decayed or damaged teeth can cause significant pain and discomfort. Extracting the problematic tooth can provide immediate relief.
Infected teeth can lead to serious oral health issues if left untreated. Tooth extractions can prevent the spread of infection to surrounding teeth and gums.
Tooth extractions may be necessary to create space for orthodontic treatments, such as braces or aligners, to properly align teeth.
Preserving Oral Health
In cases where a severely damaged or infected tooth cannot be effectively treated, extraction can prevent further complications and maintain the overall health of your mouth.
Dental Wellness and Beyond
During your consultation at NH Dentistry, Dr. Neil Hadaegh will carefully assess the condition of the tooth in question and discuss whether extraction is the best course of action. We prioritize patient education, ensuring that you understand the reasons behind the recommendation and the potential benefits of the procedure. At NH Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the tooth extraction process. Dr. Neil Hadaegh, Dr. John Costandi, and our experienced team are dedicated to providing exceptional dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. If you believe you need a tooth extraction or have questions about the procedure, contact us today to schedule a consultation and explore your treatment options.
A Gentle Touch
Before the extraction, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area around the tooth. Dr. Costandi will then gently and precisely remove the tooth. A more involved surgical extraction may be required for more complex cases or impacted teeth. Different levels of sedation may be employed depending on the details of your procedure and your individual preferences and comfort level.
Improved Oral Function
After the extraction, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed by taking any prescribed medications and following post-operative care instructions. As your mouth heals, it's important to maintain proper oral hygiene to prevent infection and ensure a smooth recovery.
A Smoother Journey
During the recovery period, it's crucial to follow the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Costandi. This may include avoiding certain foods and activities to promote optimal healing. Attend any follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure a smooth recovery.
While you may experience some discomfort during and after the procedure, Dr. Neil Hadaegh, Dr. John Costandi, and our team at NH Dentistry prioritize your comfort. Local anesthesia is used to ensure the process is as painless as possible.
Recovery time varies depending on the complexity of the extraction and your individual healing process. Generally, most patients experience relief within a few days to a week. Our team will provide personalized aftercare instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery.
Initially, opt for soft and easy-to-chew foods that won't disrupt the healing process. As you progress, you can gradually reintroduce a more normal diet. Avoid hot, spicy, and hard foods during the initial healing phase.
Dr. Neil Hadaegh will explore all possible options before recommending extraction. Sometimes, dental issues can be addressed with restorative procedures like root canals or crowns, preserving the natural tooth.
Our team will provide specific guidelines for pain management and aftercare. Over-the-counter pain relievers, ice packs, and cleaning the extraction site can help alleviate discomfort. Contact us for further guidance if you experience severe pain, swelling, bleeding, or other unexpected side effects.
