How Dental Extraction Works
Teeth present varied levels of removal difficulty, but Dr. Shahrokh and his dental care team take
pride in helping every patient get numb with modern anesthetics to start every procedure. Once anesthesia settles in, careful steps are taken with instruments designed to elevate your tooth out of place. Specific instructions help you care for the area after your procedure, with
prescriptions for any medications needed during the healing period.
While considering the short-term management of your care, we should also discuss your
long-term plans for replacing missing teeth. Some options would include dental implants, dentures, dental bridges, etc. Leaving a space is always an option, but spaces
in your smile can create appearance and functional challenges that are important to consider.
Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces, and minimizing the instability of an unbalanced
bite can save several complications later in life.
Although our primary goal is to help your teeth stay healthy and functional, we can guide you
through a dental extraction when needed. Fortunately, your mouth can be restored to health
after tooth removal. Since teeth help nourish our bodies and support our confidence, we will
help you find a game plan that fits your short and long-term goals. Use the form below to get started with a consultation with Dr. Shahrokh.
