Patient Says:

Absolutely awesome dentist and great staff. Could not find any other dentist that would remove a wisdom tooth that was already loose. Found them online and it said they remove wisdom teeth. Walked in at about 3 in the afternoon and in about hour and a half or less was out! X-ray done and tooth removed and the price beat every other place we checked hands down! Every other dentist wanted to send me to an oral surgeon and they wouldn’t even remove the tooth on the first visit! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!  Marc G.

I came to them for an extraction and I was a little nervous and the dentist and staff were amazing! They were super patient with me and they made me feel they genuinely cared about me! The dentist was really nice I love him! I have told everyone about them and I strongly recommend!  Reva Tuck

Five Star Reviews

Excellent dentist! My daughter had the best experience. He was patient, kind and very careful with her procedure. The costs are very affordable as well. Crystal Finch

Dr. Dhakar is quite possibly one of the most kind and compassionate doctor (and person) I’ve had the fortune of meeting. Contacted him with an unbearable tooth ache, two root canals and an extraction later, there is no other dentist I will see (outside of his practice). Affordable care and true desire to help while understanding that constraints most of us face (as it pertains to finances and up-front l, out of pocket dental work). Insured or not, Dr. Dhakar can’t be beat. Thanks Doc!  Lisa Magness

When a tooth experiences decay, trauma or infection so severe it cannot be saved even with endodontic root canal on a bicuspid tooth, or root canal on a molar, your dentist may suggest the tooth be extracted.

There are two main types of tooth extraction, “simple,” and surgical.  With a simple extraction, the tooth is removed using the same basic tools as with a surgical extraction, but without the need for any type of incision to the gingiva, nor segmenting of the tooth to aid in its removal. In contrast, a surgical extraction would require at least one of these two methods of enhanced extraction. This dental procedure code covers simple extraction, and specifically refers to the removal of an erupted (or, visible) tooth, or one with a root that has been exposed due to trauma or decay.  A simple extraction can also be referred to as a “closed” extraction.

Determining the type of extraction depends on the sturdiness of the crown, as well as the curvature of the tooth root. Teeth that are broken above the gumline, or decayed to such a degree that forceps cannot be used, would require surgical extraction. Likewise, because of their complicated design, multiple, curvy roots, may sometimes require a surgical incision and quartering of the tooth despite a sturdy, healthy crown.

From a procedure standpoint, a simple extraction is a fairly straightforward event. Your dentist will provide local anesthetic to numb the area surrounding the tooth, or if you are overly anxious about the procedure, analgesia may be administered.  Then, your dentist will probe around the base of the gumline with a tool called a periotome, and separate the tooth from the fibrous (ligament) tissue that joins it to the bone in your jaw, and acts as a shock absorber to chewing stressors. Once the tooth is severed from this ligament, your dentist will often need to “rock” the tooth back and forth within its socket to ease in its removal. This is done either with a pair of forceps, or a dental tool known as an “elevator,” which is akin to a common lever, and somewhat resembles a small flat-head screwdriver. Since the bone in our jaws is soft, unlike some of the other bones in our body, this gentle rocking motion actually compresses the bone slightly so the tooth can be removed without the need to apply excessive force. Final removal is usually done with a tug of the forceps.

Once the tooth has been removed, and depending on your next steps for care, your dentist may proceed with the immediate placement of a dental implant, or conduct a tooth socket graft, to prevent bone resorption that begins rather immediately after the loss of a tooth, or simply allow the opening in the gum to heal on its own as with wisdom tooth extraction.

How long does it take for a tooth extraction to clot?
The initial healing period typically takes from one to two weeks, gum tissue takesabout 3-4 weeks to heal and complete healing of the bone can take about 6-8 months depending on your care of this area.
 
For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. If you experience swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag and call your dentist right away. Ask your dentist about pain medication. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don’t clean the teeth next to where the tooth was removed.
What does a dry socket look like after a tooth extraction?
If you look into the site where the tooth was removed, you’ll probably see a drylooking socket. Instead of a blood clot, there will just be bone. The pain typically starts about two days after the tooth was extracted. Over time it becomes more severe and can radiate to your ear.

Here are some tips to follow to make recovery easier:

  • Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing.
  • Don’t smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously.
  • Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
  • Follow the diet your dentist suggests.
