Tooth Extraction Overview

When a tooth is significantly damaged, decayed or compromised, an extraction may be necessary to achieve optimal oral health. Dr. Chiman Lad and Dr. Sunjay Lad are both very gentle and will use sedation therapy if the patient needs it. The staff will make sure you are comfortable, treat you with quality care and your extraction will be completed within one visit. Our doctors will explain your treatment plan options to empower you with the necessary knowledge to make the best decision. An extraction may be recommended when substantial gum disease, infection, excessive bacteria or abscess is present, or when a tooth is impacted or if a tooth is severely damaged. Trust Lad Family Dentistry for any extraction you may need in the Temple City area. (626) 287-4094

Pain Relief and Peace of Mind

“I have been going to Lad Family Dentistry for over seven years and I am very happy with the treatment I have received. I remember one day I had swelling in my gums and had some nerve pain. The next day that tooth cracked and I was very nervous because I thought I may have to have an extraction. I went in to see Dr. Chiman Lad and after my examination, he gave me my options. Boy was I relieved, he saved the tooth and to this day I have no problems with it.”

Extraction Procedure

At Lad Family Dentistry, a tooth extraction procedure involves anesthetic that numbs the area to help you relax, feel comfortable and decrease any discomfort. After the extraction, you will be given suggestions and a regimen to follow for the best care after the extraction. A small amount of bleeding is normal after the procedure and a blood clot will form. To help the healing process and not dislodge the blood clot we recommend avoiding smoking, vigorous rinsing of the mouth, or drinking through a straw following a tooth extraction. For any extraction questions in the Temple City area please call (626) 287-4094. Or for your convenience click here to request an appointment.

Post Tooth Extraction or Removal

Problems that can arise after the removal of teeth include bone loss, biting irregularities, and changes in your smile. Biting irregularities due to the loss of a tooth can cause problems in chewing and could lead to a change in eating habits, which may also affect your nutritional balance. The tooth opposite the extraction no longer has another tooth to contact, which compromises functionality. Bone loss causes the gum line to collapse and changes your smile, and lips and cheek lose their support. Dr. Chiman Lad and Dr. Sunjay Lad have cosmetic options to remedy these situations including a dental bridge or dental implant to replace the extracted tooth.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Third molars are more commonly called “wisdom teeth.” They usually appear somewhere in the late teens or early twenties. These molars often lack the space they need to erupt fully or even at all. When they fail to erupt, it is called impaction and they will require extraction. When you do not have the space for the wisdom teeth to come in normally or if they simply develop in the wrong place, problems may arise such as crowding or damage to the adjacent teeth. Dr. Sunjay Lad and Dr. Chiman Lad can x-ray your wisdom teeth and consult with you about the many options you have to correct the problem. Call today for your free consultation about extractions in Temple City. (626) 287-4094

Tooth Extraction Risks

Dry socket develops in about 3% to 4% of all extractions. It occurs when the blood clot breaks off too early or fails to form completely over the hole. They underlying bone is then exposed to air and food, causing pain and a bad odor or taste.  Dry socket typically occurs on or after the third day of surgery. If the removed tooth was impacted, a dry socket can occur up to 30% of the time. Women who take birth control pills or smoke are more likely to have dry socket. However, if you follow our doctors’ aftercare instructions, your healing will be great. If you any questions concerning extractions and live in Temple City call (626) 287-4094 now!

    Dr. Sunjay Lad is professional, thorough, and efficient. He talks through the different options for care with me and is honest about what needs to be taken care of in the short term versus what we can wait to deal with later. Very clean facility and welcoming and proficient staff. Highly recommend.

    I had a friend who recommended Dr. Chiman Lad a few years ago, and finally decided to make the switch this year. My friend has had Dr. Lad as his dentist for over 30 years, so I figured he must be good! The office is in a really convenient location for me so that was a major contributing factor for me to make the switch.

    Ron P.

    I have been to several dentist in my lifetime and some of the procedures Dr Lad used are some of the most advanced I have ever seen. The attention and service from the entire staff at Lad Family dentistry is also among the highest.
