What happens during a dental extraction?
When we determine, after an exam with Dr. Keledjian, that you need a dental extraction, we will first determine if you should have your procedure done here or if we need to refer you to a specialist. In most cases, we can treat you right in our dental office.
Dr. Jason Keledjian will make sure you are completely comfortable for your procedure. He takes extra precautions to make sure you will not feel a thing. That way, you do not have to worry about pain.
The dental extractions we do in our office are simple extractions. Dr. Keledjian will numb the area all around your tooth and gently wiggle it loose from your jaw. He has special instruments to help remove your tooth and in many cases, it will come out in one piece. Sometimes if it is broken or severely decayed, we will remove it in several pieces.
Having an extraction really sounds like no fun, but if you follow your aftercare instructions closely, you should heal quickly. Your mouth has a great capacity for healing.
Once you feel better and the swelling goes down, Dr. Keledjian will offer you various tooth replacement options so that you can eat, speak, and smile again.
