Tooth extraction can provide immediate relief from pain and discomfort caused by a damaged or infected tooth. This can improve your quality of life and allow you to eat, drink, and speak comfortably again.
Tooth extraction can prevent the spread of infection and disease to other teeth and parts of the body. This is especially important if you have a tooth that is severely decayed or infected.
By removing the tooth, we can prevent further damage, promote healing, and save you from needing more extensive and expensive dental treatments in the future.
Tooth extraction can improve your oral health by eliminating the source of the problem and allowing for proper healing and restoration.
It can also prevent overcrowding and improve the alignment of your teeth, which can have long-term benefits for your overall wellbeing.
Our dental team will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth and ensure that you don't feel any pain during the procedure.
The tooth will be carefully loosened and removed from the socket using forceps.
The socket will be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, and stitches may be placed to help with healing.
You will be given aftercare instructions by your dentist in Solana Beach to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, swelling, or discomfort, it's important to schedule a dental appointment. Our experienced team can evaluate the problem and determine if a tooth extraction is necessary.
A dry socket is a common dental condition that occurs when the underlying bone structure, which holds the healing tooth in place, becomes exposed after the loss of a tooth. It typically happens when the clot that naturally forms over an extraction site gets dislodged too soon.
Symptoms can range from mild to severe pain, along with bad breath and a shooting sensation that radiates deep into the jaw area while eating or drinking.
Thankfully, dry socket can be treated relatively easily with pain management as well as topical ointments used to cover and protect the exposed bone.
