Tooth Extraction Los Angeles, CA
TOOTH EXTRACTION CAN BE A PAINLESS WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR DENTAL HEALTH
Tooth extraction might sound like a painful experience, but there is no need to fear it because Wilshire Smile Studio’s oral surgeon is very experienced at every type of dental surgery and widely admired by other practices in Southern California. We offer a wide range of anesthesia options to make every procedure pain-free.
Teeth often need to be extracted because one or more were loosened or fractured in a vehicle or sports accident. Other reasons include the need to remove severely decayed teeth that cannot be repaired with fillings and crowns, wisdom teeth that are causing overcrowding when they emerge, teeth affected by cancer or radiation, and in preparation for orthodontic work.
But the most common reason is simply a neglect of thorough brushing and flossing. Bacteria are attracted to remaining food particles and the resulting film, known as plaque, sticks to the gums and teeth. If not removed by better cleaning or treatment by a dental hygienist with special tools, this can cause the gums to pull away their support from teeth. If these loose ones do not fall out, they are best surgically removed and replaced with dental implants.
