What is a Tooth Extraction from El Segundo Modern Dentistry?

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure where we carefully and gently remove a tooth fully from its socket. Removing the tooth provides relief from pain and can also help prevent an infection from spreading to adjacent teeth. Tooth extraction can also be the first step in improving the look of your smile, as it allows us to more easily perform a cosmetic treatment, such as placing a dental implant or set of dentures.

What Are the Different Types of Tooth Extractions Available?

There are several different types of tooth extractions that El Segundo Modern Dentistry and Orthodontics performs. For example, we offer basic teeth extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, impacted teeth extractions, and surgical extractions.

What Can I Expect After a Tooth Extraction?

It will take some time to heal after having a tooth extraction. Our experienced dental team will use self-dissolving sutures to seal the site and put gauze to catch and stop further bleeding. You can rest assured our El Segundo team will give you thorough aftercare instructions designed to help you recover without forming complications like dry socket. General aftercare instructions include no smoking, drinking through a straw, rinsing, spitting, heavy lifting, or consuming alcohol or carbonated drinks for a minimum of 24 hours.
