Experienced Care for Comfortable Tooth Extractions

When Should a Tooth Be Pulled?

If you are experiencing pain, discomfort or swelling around a tooth, it may need to be extracted.

It is Dr. Victor Bustos’ main goal to save natural teeth whenever possible, however sometimes the best treatment plan calls for a tooth extraction, such as in cases of:

  • Infection or severe tooth decay
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Teeth that cannot be restored
  • Supernumerary teeth (extra teeth)
  • Severe gum disease
  • Orthodontics
  • Cosmetic concerns

Severe gum disease is a main factor that influences the need for extractions. Be sure to check out our page on gum disease to learn more about how to stop its devastating effects on your overall health.

Wisdom Teeth

Many of our patients require their wisdom teeth to be removed. Sometimes people can go their entire lives without their wisdom teeth causing issues, but others exhibit signs of a needed extraction.

These signs include:

  • Inflammation or swelling in the gums surrounding your wisdom teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Chronic pain indicating infection
  • Partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth

The Procedure

Dr. Bustos will discuss with you exactly what to expect before the procedure to answer all of your questions and put you at ease. We provide sedation dentistry services to ensure a comfortable and relaxing appointment.

Local anesthetic will properly numb your mouth and if an anesthetic is used, will allow you to “sleep” through your procedure. After the extraction you may need stitches and you will be given thorough post-operative instructions.
