Why would my tooth need to be removed?

Your permanent teeth are designed to last a lifetime, but for numerous reasons, some may not. For instance, you might need to have a tooth extracted because it is too severely damaged to keep. Illness, decay, and trauma may all contribute to the need for having a tooth pulled.

Your dentist may recommend an extraction if you're dealing with one of the following situations:

  • Risk of infection from an unsuccessful root canal
  • Risk of infection during chemotherapy or an organ transplant
  • Severe gum (periodontal) disease
  • Extra or crowded teeth
  • No space for wisdom teeth (third molars) to grow (impacted)

Dr. Lalezarian can expertly assess each patient’s needs and determine, along with specialists, if a tooth extraction is necessary.

What is the timeline for healing from a tooth extraction?

While it's contingent on your particular case and the number of teeth you had removed, the beginning healing stage takes about one to two weeks. New bone and gum tissue will slowly replace the areas where your teeth were removed. You may experience pain and discomfort or difficulty chewing as you heal, depending on the scope of your dental operation.

Because everyone's circumstances are different, you should reach out to Dental Care of Beverly Hills and book a consultation to find out about your options and any important follow-up treatments like dental implants or crowns.
