Tooth Extractions in Madera, CA
All the services we offer at Keledjian Dental are meant to help you maintain a healthy smile and prevent problems like severe cavities and infections that can ultimately lead to tooth loss. But despite our best efforts to save every tooth, sometimes it's in the best interest of your long-term oral health to recommend extraction.
Whether you've suffered trauma to a tooth because of an accident or a broken or cracked tooth is damaged beyond repair, you can be comforted knowing that we perform safe, comfortable tooth extractions at our Madera dental office.
It's also important to remember that not all dental extractions are related to poor oral health; in some cases, the procedure can save surrounding teeth or deliver more positive outcomes with orthodontic treatment and denture therapy.
Why We Might Recommend Tooth Extraction
There are several cases where Dr. Jason Keledjian would recommend tooth extraction at our Madera dental office:
- An infected tooth can't be saved with a root canal
- A badly cracked or fractured tooth
- A tooth broken off at the gum line
- Relieve the pain of a severely infected tooth
- Remove problematic wisdom teeth
- Prepare for orthodontic treatment
- Deliver the best outcome with denture therapy
- Minimize overcrowding
Many times patients come to us because they are experiencing a severe toothache. This can be due to advanced gum disease or because the tooth itself is infected.
While we do our utmost to try to save each tooth with procedures such as root canals, fillings, and periodontal treatment, it is not always possible. If it becomes necessary for us to extract your tooth, Dr. Jason Keledjian will help you understand why you need the procedure, and how it will benefit you.
Simple and Surgical Tooth Extraction
When you come in for an extraction, we will make sure you are completely comfortable. Once your procedure is complete, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for the site of your extracted tooth. Depending on your situation, Dr. Keledjian may prescribe additional medication to assist in healing. You may also be required to refrain from certain behaviors such as drinking through a straw and smoking until you heal completely.
Even though we try to provide most services for our patients right in our Madera dental office, having a tooth pulled is not always a simple procedure. In this case, Dr. Keledjian will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon to complete an extraction, and we will make sure that your care is in the best possible hands.
Our dental care team will follow up with you on the day of your procedure to ensure you are healing properly and that you aren't experiencing any complications. Your focus should be on following our instructions and resting and taking it easy to allow your body's natural healing process to take over.
