Intense tooth pain can be a strong motivator. When the sensation is excruciating you want nothing more than to be rid of the troubled tooth. At Bonita Del Rey we don’t take tooth extractions lightly. We want to alleviate your pain but at the same time preserve your tooth if at all possible. If the decay is severe or the tooth is causing issues with its surrounding teeth, it has to go. When this is the case, count on us to provide the exceptionally compassionate care you need.
For most teeth, extraction is a very straightforward procedure during which we use a tool called an elevator to loosen the tooth before pulling it out with forceps. Wisdom teeth require a somewhat more sophisticated surgical procedure that includes its own special care during healing. If you undergo wisdom teeth removal, you will need transportation to and from our Chula Vista, CA office. We’re highly experienced with all types of tooth extractions and through our affiliation with a local anesthesiologist can provide IV sedation or whatever level of anesthetic is needed to keep you pain- and stress-free throughout the procedure.
Once your tooth extractions are completed, you’ll feel relieved. But gaps in your smile present their own challenges. Teeth rely on their neighboring teeth to keep them standing straight; the teeth on either side of the gap can eventually become crooked without the support. Your teeth are anchored in your jawbone and help keep the bone strong. When you lose a tooth the bone underneath can deteriorate and recede. Missing teeth can also affect your ability to eat and speak comfortably. There’s also the social factor—gaps in your smile can make you feel awkward and embarrassed. Dental implants are the solution to all of these problems. They’re the most natural-looking teeth replacement option available—and they’re permanent. Dr. Aldo Espinosa has advanced training in placing dental implants and takes continuing education courses to ensure he knows the most up-to-date techniques. He can perform your placements right here in our Chula Vista, CA office. Find out if you might be a candidate for dental implants after tooth extractions!
