Sometimes a Tooth Extraction is a Sensible Decision
A Tooth Extraction Walk Through

Since we remain in network with leading insurance providers we will then discuss your payment options. Once we decide to schedule the tooth extraction in Gilroy, CA we have deemed it the best course of action due to infection or trauma. In most situations, tooth extraction is a quick procedure that won’t cause you pain. Patients often report that they experience dull pressure during the procedure yet remained completely comfortable and relaxed at their appointment.
Tooth Extraction Outcomes
After Care for Your Extracted Tooth
After any tooth extraction, you must remain mindful of the healing process to ensure a healthy recovery. A blood clot typically forms over an empty tooth socket during healing. If this doesn’t happen or if the blood clot is removed, the bone and nerves below the socket become exposed. This results in a painful complication called dry socket. Dry socket is preventable, and to secure a simple recovery follow the post-extraction guidelines that we’ll review with you after your surgery.
Extracting the troubled tooth shouldn’t be the end of your treatment. For patients who have extracted a tooth, we recommend replacing the hole in your smile with a dental implant. A dental implant is the only permanent solution for tooth replacement. Dental implants look and act just like natural teeth since they mimic the natural structure of your tooth including the root.
