Tooth Extraction

When teeth are too damaged to be restored with fillings or crowns, tooth extraction may be the only remaining option.

At Bloom Dental Group in San Mateo, California, your comfort is the top priority when undergoing a tooth extraction procedure.

What is tooth extraction?

Teeth need to be extracted, or removed, when they are too badly damaged to be repaired effectively. Major tooth damage occurs following an injury or due to decay. Even though adult teeth should last a lifetime, in these cases tooth extraction may be the only option to keep the mouth healthy over time.

If you have an impacted tooth, the dentist may remove bone or soft tissue around the tooth to loosen and then remove it.

Why do teeth need to be extracted?

If a tooth cannot be repaired safely, they may need to be extracted for your oral health. Teeth need to be extracted for a number of reasons, including:

  • When they prevent proper tooth eruption, or there is overcrowding
  • Upcoming orthodontic treatment
  • Before radiation or chemotherapy treatments
  • Impacted wisdom teeth that damage the jaws or adjacent teeth
  • When undergoing medical treatment for organ transplants or cancer

Your team at Bloom Dental Group will help you determine if a tooth extraction is the right solution for your needs. Once your tooth is removed, you may choose to receive a crown, bridge, or dental implant to restore the look and feel of the extracted tooth.

What can I expect when getting a tooth extracted?

Our dentists will work with you to create the best treatment plan for your needs. When you undergo a tooth extraction, the dentist numbs the area with a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain or discomfort during the procedure. If several teeth are to be removed, a stronger anesthetic may be used.

Bloom Dental Group offers tooth extractions in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Thanks to options like sedation dentistry, you can come to us without feeling nervous about your dental care. The entire tooth extraction can be completed without you ever feeling a thing!
