Tooth Extractions in Oakley, CA

Tooth Extractions Service

People like to imagine that their teeth can last a lifetime. For a few lucky ones, they can have all of their chompers lasting a lifetime; however, most persons have a tooth or several pulled somewhere downline. At Delta Family Dentistry, our gentle, caring dentist is highly trained and can perform tooth extractions safely and pain-free.

Today’s extractions don’t have to worry you because, besides using numbing agents, you could have sedation given to enhance comfort. Meet Dr. Ramona Yousefipour to check your tooth to see if it needs extraction. You will be surprised that extractions in Oakley, CA, are just like other procedures and pain-free, except for the gentle pressure when waggling and pulling the tooth.

Why Get a Tooth Extracted?

Our dentist will want you to have all of your natural teeth intact. However, there are times when pulling a tooth is the only choice left. We recommend extractions near you because of the following:

  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Severe decay or infection
  • A crowded mouth that needs to be prepared for braces
  • A tooth damaged or broken severely that it can’t be repaired with a crown or filling material
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

What Happens During Extraction?

A dentist in Oakley, CA, numbs the site using local anesthetic and administers sedation like oral conscious sedation if required. A straight tooth is easier to remove. However, if it is impacted, badly decayed, or stuck below the gum line, a dentist cuts the gum to access the tooth. A dentist near you may sometimes have to cut up the tooth and extract it in pieces.

Types of Extractions

Two types of extractions are performed, namely: simple and surgical. The former involves a tooth that is visible or has erupted through the gum. Our dentist loosens the tooth with an elevator and gently but quickly pulls it with forceps.

A surgical extraction entails pulling a tooth that hasn’t erupted or is broken. A wisdom tooth extraction is a good example.

Contact Dr. Ramona Yousefipour at Delta Family Dentistry today to see if your diseased, damaged, or impacted tooth needs to be pulled.
