Gentle Dental Extractions Provide Immediate Pain Relief and Support a Long-lasting Healthy Smile

Despite their best intentions, your teeth sometimes need to be extracted. Wisdom, overcrowded or severely damaged teeth leave extraction as the only viable option. However, when Dr. Neal Edwards says your tooth needs removal, you have nothing to worry about. We do this minor procedure at Neal Edwards DDS in Riverside, California, with short and long-term concerns in mind. From anxiety management to tooth replacement, we have everything planned for you. 

Why your teeth may need extraction

The best dentistry is preventative dentistry. The second-best dental care in minimal intervention dentistry. However, sometimes, you need dental extraction to preserve your oral health. When you need a dental extraction, you have nothing to worry about. Our caring dental team offers safe yet effective dental extraction in our comfortable, inviting office when faced with the following:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Severely damaged or decayed teeth
  • Severe gum disease (periodontitis)
  • Overcrowding 
  • If your tooth impedes the effectiveness of orthodontics

What to expect during dental extraction

Tooth extraction involves removing your entire tooth — the crown and the root(s) — from its socket in the jawbone. We recommend simple extraction if your tooth has broken through the gum line. The procedure is done after numbing your gums for maximum comfort. Our dental team uses special tools and techniques to loosen and pull your tooth from the socket.

A surgical extraction is required for impacted wisdom teeth or teeth broken at the gum line level. This procedure is more invasive than a simple extraction, but our dental team takes the utmost care to optimize your comfort. After numbing your gums, we incise your gums and bone to access the trapped tooth. Our dental team breaks the impacted tooth into pieces for easier removal. After pulling out every piece of your tooth, we clean, sanitize, and suture the surgical site to pave the way for healing. 

Before letting you leave, our dental team equips you with aftercare tips for an event-free recovery.
