  1. 1. Emergency Dentist Los Angeles • Dental extractions, meaning simply, removal of one or more teeth from the mouth are not uncommon procedures. Despite public education of preventative dental care, tooth decay and abscess are the most frequent reasons for the procedure. • However, another common need especially in young patients is failure of a tooth to fully erupt from within the gums resulting in impaction. Typically, impacted teeth are the molars and can affect one or both sides of the mouth. Regardless of the reason for a dental extraction, the procedure can seem daunting. Here are some guidelines on what to expect.www.drkezian.com
  2. 2. Emergency Dentist Los Angeles • Dr. Kezian, emergency dentist Los Angeles, is fully experienced in all kinds of dental extractions. He and his staff can provide answers to any of your questions and alleviate any concerns. • There are a variety of reasons that a patient may seek a dentist for a dental extraction procedure. • Dental caries or tooth decay is the most common reason. Some studies have shown dental caries account for up to 65% of all tooth removals. • Extra teeth may block or prevent other teeth from erupting; therefore, removal of the extra teeth may be necessary for overall dental health, i.e. impacted wisdom teeth. • Tooth extraction may be necessary to prep the teeth for orthodontic work • Trauma or other causes of fractured teeth that are not reparable • Malformed teeth, either congenital or due to other causes • Too little space or room for the wisdom teeth • Cosmetic reasons to improve confidencewww.drkezian.com
  3. 3. Emergency Dentist Los Angeles • There are essentially two types of dental extraction procedures. Simple dental extractions are appropriate when the tooth to be removed is visible and relatively easy to extract with simple tools. A local anesthetic can be used to numb the gums and prevent pain or discomfort. • A surgical dental extraction, as the name implies is more complicated, requires an incision into the gum line and a general anesthetic for the procedure. Special tools or drills are used.www.drkezian.com
  4. 4. Emergency Dentist Los Angeles • Dental extractions, when performed by experience dentists or oral surgeons, are safe and have few complications. If problems do arise, these may include infection at the incision site or excessive bleeding. The dentist can stop any excess bleeding and may prescribe antibiotic therapy to treat or prevent wound infection. • Whether a tooth extraction is an elective or urgent procedure, Dr. Kezian, a renowned emergency dentist Los Angeles, is available for a consultation today.www.drkezian.com
