Are you suffering from severe tooth pain? Tooth pain may be caused due to several reasons, and treatment may involve a root canal, tooth extraction or wisdom tooth extraction, depending on the damage. Good oral hygiene pattern and regular dental exams can prevent decay and infection.
Please book a consultation with our trained and compassionate dentist near you for an accurate diagnosis.
Tooth pain may be one of the reasons to get your tooth pulled. You may also need a dental extraction if:
Extractions in Turlock, CA, may also be necessary to prevent a bacterial infection from growing or to pull impacted teeth that have not erupted from the gums.
Prior to tooth extraction, we will record your medical history, including medication, allergies, and current health status. Depending on your unique needs, we may prescribe antibiotics to be taken before the extraction procedure.
Our patients need not be apprehensive of pain during extractions. We will first apply a numbing gel and then de-sensitize the surrounding area with a gentle injection. Once the site is numb, the dentist in Turlock, CA, will loosen the tooth and safely prise it out of the socket.
We use modern sedation methods to keep patients relaxed throughout the process. You may experience some pressure during the procedure, but no pain.
We also prescribe painkillers to minimize any soreness that may persist for a day or two. Once extraction is complete, please request a family member or friend to drive you home and refrain from consuming hot, cold and hard foods for about a week. Rinse gently with warm water, and avoid aggressive brushing and flossing.
If you experience discomfort, pain, or sensitivity, please contact Dr. Harpreet Brar for tooth extraction near you.
