The thought of having a tooth pulled may seem daunting, but tooth extractions are considered standard dental treatments. Tooth extraction services can be obtained at the office of Natalie K. Provenzano DDS, Inc in San Jose by their in-house Board Certified Oral Surgeon, Dr. Or Simel. Before recommending extraction, Dr. Provenzano or Dr. Ram will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if it’s the best course of action for treatment. In some instances, tooth removal is necessary to curtail the spread of infection and restore your oral health.
Dr. Natalie Provenzano may recommend extracting a tooth that’s been irreparably damaged by decay to stop the infection, protect healthy teeth and restore your oral health. Other instances where it may be necessary to extract a tooth are:
Working with an experienced specialist for tooth removal is key to effective, pain-free extraction services. Dr. Or Simel and his team of oral surgery assistants have ample experience with tooth extractions and will ensure you have safe, successful treatment.
There are two types of tooth extraction: simple and surgical. If your tooth is visible above the gum line and can be reached with forceps, chances are it can be removed through a simple extraction. A surgical extraction requires cutting into your gum to remove a tooth. It’s generally done for impacted wisdom teeth or broken teeth that can’t be removed any other way. Both procedures are performed using anesthesia for pain-free treatment.
After your extraction, we’ll give you detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site to expedite your recovery. We’ll also prescribe medication to relieve pain and reduce your risk of infection following your procedure. We recommend limiting strenuous activities, avoiding hot drinks, and not using a straw until the area has healed.
