For tooth extractions in Elk Grove, call New Dental Images. We treat each patient as an individual and offer solutions tailored for the patient’s specific needs. If you need to have a tooth pulled, we will use the latest in dental technology and keep you informed during each step of the procedure.
Why Extract Teeth?
We may recommend a tooth extraction if a tooth is too damaged to be saved. We may extract good teeth if the teeth are crowded or if baby teeth are preventing permanent ones from coming in. Sometimes, a doctor may request an extraction for procedures such as radiation treatments.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
As part of the wisdom tooth therapy, Dr. Dang will examine your teeth and X-ray the teeth. If your wisdom teeth are not crowding your other teeth or presenting other problems, Dr. Dang may decide that the best solution is to keep the teeth. She will show you how to keep them healthy.
Wisdom teeth may be impacted or unable to come in because of crowding. If the teeth failed to fully emerge, they may become breeding grounds for infections. If your wisdom tooth is infected, Dr. Dang provides wisdom tooth extractions in Elk Grove. Frequently patients needing this procedure are young and easily scared by the experience. Dr. Dang uses the latest techniques to put patients of all ages at ease during extractions.
Before The Extraction
At New Dental Images we use modern technology to give you the best experience possible before, during, and after tooth extractions. Because getting a tooth pulled is a scary situation for most people, Dr. Dang makes sure you understand the process, from the initial X-rays to the administering of medications.
Our staff will consult with you throughout the procedure. We welcome patient’s questions and strive to address each one’s concerns.
Dr. Dang will use X-rays of the tooth, its roots, and the surrounding teeth to determine the best extraction method. One of our competent staff will administer numbing medication, either through an injection or through an IV solution. When the area is numbed, the dentist will extract the tooth.
After The Extraction
Proper care after a tooth extraction is vital to the patient’s overall health. This is an important part of your wisdom tooth therapy because it is hard to care for that area of the mouth. Dr. Dang will advise you on the best ways to care for your extraction site, including how to minimize complications.
