Extracting a tooth can be a worrisome procedure. At Mint Dental Loft, we do all we can to provide tooth extractions in Altadena, California, comfortably and quickly. If you feel you may need a tooth removed or are interested in the post-extraction tooth restorations that can be provided by Dr. Tran Han, please call us at 626.639.8618.
Our dentist and team are committed to your oral health and smile, and make every effort to provide you with treatments that are conservative and which will promote your oral health both immediately and long-term. In some cases, however, your tooth may be so severely damaged that a more conservative restorative option is not a good option. In this case, we may recommend a tooth extraction.
Tooth extractions are typically recommend when:
- Severe infection destroys much of the tooth and supporting oral structures
- Decay has damaged the tooth beyond the point where it can be successfully repaired and restored
- Your teeth are overcrowded, increasing your risk of developing other problems or preventing you from receiving other treatments which you may need
When our dentist extracts a tooth, she takes great care to ensure that your extraction is as gentle and pain-free as possible. We provide anesthetic as well as sedation options during the procedure, and will provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal and recover as quickly as possible. After you have healed, our dentist will begin working with you to create a replacement for your tooth. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing and your individual needs, this replacement may be a dental implant, a bridge or a denture. You may be certain that your restoration will be as natural-looking as possible.
