Why would I need an Extraction?
Tooth extractions are necessary in several situations, including severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, or when a tooth is impacted or overcrowding other teeth. By removing damaged or problematic teeth, you can alleviate pain, prevent further complications, and improve overall oral health. Dr. Tommy Duong will evaluate your specific condition and recommend extractions when necessary to ensure the best outcomes for your dental health.
The Benefits of Extractions
Extracting a damaged or infected tooth can provide immediate relief from toothaches and discomfort.
Removing teeth affected by severe decay or infection helps prevent the spread of bacteria, protecting surrounding teeth and gums.
Creates space for orthodontic treatment
Extractions can make room for orthodontic treatment, such as braces or aligners, to properly align your teeth and improve your smile's aesthetics.

Tooth extraction is considered one of the oldest surgical procedures in history.
The Extraction Process
Dr. Tommy Duong will carefully examine your tooth and surrounding structures using advanced diagnostic tools to determine if extraction is necessary.
Before the extraction, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area, ensuring a comfortable experience during the procedure.
Using specialized instruments, Dr. Tommy Duong will gently remove the tooth. If necessary, stitches may be placed to aid in healing.
