Tooth Extractions in San Ramon, CA

Even though Dr. Rupam Khanna makes every effort to rescue and maintain your natural teeth, there are cases in which a tooth or teeth might need to be taken out. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible over the gums. This is commonly used for a tooth that is damaged or decayed and cannot be repaired. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that has not erupted over the gumline. Surgical extractions are most frequently done to remove impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, with insufficient space to fit into your mouth. Whatever the reason for needing an extraction at San Ramon Family Dental, our team will treat you with the best care. Our San Ramon, CA office provides multiple sedation techniques, such as nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, so that you can stay comfortable during your treatment. Contact our team for more information or to schedule an exam with Dr. Khanna to boost your smile.

Extractions are performed in our dental office using local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth being treated. Other kinds of sedation might be used, depending on the extent of the procedure, and also to help keep you relaxed in case you have any dental anxieties. Once you're prepared, Dr. Khanna will begin the procedure. For a simple extraction, Dr. Khanna will loosen up the tooth using a special device called an elevator prior to removal. A surgical extraction entails making incisions in your gums to get to the tooth. If necessary, the tooth might be broken up into smaller pieces so it can be taken out. When the tooth has been removed, Dr. Khanna will close the incision in your gums. If you have a current illness, if your immune system is compromised, if the process is lengthy, or if you have other special health conditions, Dr. Khanna may prescribe antibiotics to be taken before and after the operation.

Though some San Ramon, CA patients may wish to delay or avoid their tooth extractions, having these treatments carried out at San Ramon Family Dental quickly following diagnosis may provide the following oral health benefits:
