Tooth Extractions


At times, your dentist may recommend tooth extraction as a necessary treatment to maintain your oral health. Tooth extraction is a procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the bone. There are various reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary, including severe decay or infection, gum disease, crowding of teeth, and trauma to the tooth.

At LA Family Dentistry, we understand that tooth extraction may be an intimidating and worrisome experience for many patients. Our experienced and compassionate dental team is dedicated to providing exceptional care to ensure your comfort and well-being throughout the procedure.

Types of Tooth Extractions

Before the tooth extraction, we will conduct a thorough examination to determine the most appropriate and comfortable method of tooth removal for you. Depending on your situation, we may recommend either a simple extraction or a surgical extraction.

  • A simple extraction involves the removal of a tooth that is visible above the gum line. Our dentist in Hialeah, FL, will numb the area with a local anesthetic, loosen the tooth with a special tool, and then gently remove it from the socket.
  • A surgical extraction, on the other hand, is more complex and may be necessary for teeth that are not easily visible or have not yet erupted. The dentist may need to make an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and then remove it from the socket.

Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for the extraction site and what to expect during the healing process. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and to avoid complications.

We understand that tooth extraction can be an anxiety-inducing experience for some patients. Therefore, we offer sedation dentistry options to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Our goal is to make the procedure as pain-free and stress-free as possible.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or have been advised by your dentist that tooth extraction is necessary, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our experienced dental team. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality care to restore your oral health and well-being.
