When To Extract A Tooth
While tooth extraction is never ideal, there are times it is necessary for your smile's health
Severe tooth decay
If a cavity and tooth decay have spread through the soft pulp at the center of your tooth, the infection can continue to spread unchecked until it reaches past the root at the end of the tooth and into the surrounding gum tissue. Not only can this cause a serious toothache, but it puts your tooth's life on the line as the pulp's blood vessels and nerves (which keep your tooth alive) are attacked. While it is common for a root canal to be performed to remove the infection, a root canal can't do miracles. If the tooth infection has become so extensive that the tooth dies, then our dentists will extract the tooth.
Periodontal (gum) disease begins with gingivitis inflaming the gums when plaque and bacteria spread beneath the gum line, often caused by a lack of flossing or brushing your teeth. Gingivitis later progresses into periodontitis and begins attacking the gum and bone tissue supporting your teeth. As your gums and bone deteriorate, teeth become loose without the proper foundation keeping them firmly in place. Left alone and untreated for too long, it may be time for a tooth extraction. To prevent gum disease, be sure to brush twice daily and floss once daily, and come in for a cleaning and examination every six months.
The tooth is impacted
An impacted tooth doesn't have enough room to come in and is blocked from emerging, or it has only partially emerged and will not come out farther. Impacted and partially impacted teeth, especially wisdom teeth, can cause damage to neighboring teeth, cause painful cysts and abscesses to form, and leave your smile vulnerable to decay and infection. Wisdom teeth that do fully erupt can cause overcrowding, which can ruin the look and bite of your smile and require orthodontic treatment to fix. This is one reason why so many patients get their wisdom teeth removed once they start to erupt, or even before they start causing problems.

Wisdom Tooth Removal
Our talented dentists can perform a quick and easy surgical extraction
While some patients go through their entire lives without needing to remove their wisdom teeth, the fact is that most people are bothered by their wisdom teeth at some point. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause structural damage to teeth and leave your teeth and gums especially weak to cavities and gum disease. Wisdom tooth removal is an extremely common process, with over 10 million wisdom teeth extractions performed every year. Here's what you can expect during your impacted wisdom tooth surgical extraction: Before the procedure begins, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the gums and area around the tooth.
You may feel some pressure during the extraction, but not any pain. Once fully numbed, each tooth will be handled in the same way. A small cut will be made in the gum tissue to allow us to access the tooth and bone. Any bone that blocks access to the root of the tooth will be removed, and the tooth may be divided into pieces to make extraction easier. The tooth is then removed, and the extraction site is cleaned of debris. Gauze is then placed to aid in the formation of a blood clot. Do you or your child need a wisdom tooth removal performed?

What is tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction involves removing a tooth from the mouth, usually because it is causing pain, and the damage cannot be reversed. If the tooth is visible and not impacted, then a tool called an elevator is used to loosen the tooth, followed by forceps to extract it. If the tooth is impacted, a small cut is made in the gums to remove the tooth.
What does tooth extraction cost?
The cost of tooth extraction varies, based on whether the removal is simple or surgical, how much anesthetic is used, and whether sedation is required. Give us a call to schedule a consultation if you'd like to discuss specifics.
How long does it take to get a tooth pulled?
The timespan of your tooth extraction depends on the removal method you need. A simple extraction, which is performed on teeth visible above the gum line, only takes 3 to 15 minutes to complete after your mouth is numbed with local anesthetic. For teeth not emerged above the gums, a surgical extraction, which requires a small incision to reach to problem tooth, takes 20 to 40 minutes.
How long is the recovery from a tooth extraction?
Most patients find that any discomfort will subside after three days and completely vanish after about ten days. This amount varies based on the individual's unique situation and how well aftercare instructions are being followed.
Does tooth extraction hurt?
We have a vast array of anesthetic options available so that patients can feel relaxed and at ease throughout the extraction process. Some patients may even opt to sleep through it all with sedation dentistry.
What are tooth replacement options?
There's a wide variety of options available to you if you want to replace a missing tooth. A dental bridge, dental implant, or dentures are all great ways to fill the gap in your mouth at our Tustin dental office. Call us to schedule an appointment to discuss what option best suits you and your unique situation.
How do I know if my gingivitis is getting better?
Once you begin treating your gingivitis—consistent brushing and flossing is the recommended method—you'll begin to quickly notice that your gums will start looking healthier. The inflamed red will calm down to a softer pink, swollenness will soothe down, and your gums will stop bleeding even while cleaning your teeth.
How long will it take to reverse gingivitis?
The length of time it takes to reverse gingivitis depends on your unique situation and how aggressively you treat it. For most patients, however, consistent daily flossing and twice-daily brushing your teeth can cure their gum disease in just 2 weeks.
How often should you get a deep cleaning?
If you have any stage of periodontitis, you should get a deep cleaning periodically to maintain your gum disease. Once the pockets between your gums and your teeth deepen, it is much easier and quicker for plaque, tartar, and bacteria to become trapped. Deep cleanings should be done every 2 or 3 months to keep your gum infection from worsening and spreading.
