There are instances where it is necessary to remove a tooth. Some examples of this situation include a baby tooth that is misshapen or has long roots that prevent it from falling out on its own. In other cases, a tooth with a lot of decay could put other teeth at risk, or infection could call for extraction. Another reason could be for orthodontic correction.
Welcome to New Smiles Studio, where we are dedicated to providing you with the best dental care in Valley Village, CA. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Melanie Marshall, is highly skilled in a variety of dental procedures, including dental extractions.
At New Smiles Studio, we understand that the thought of having a tooth extracted can be stressful, but we want to assure you that our team is here to make the experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Dr. Marshall will take the time to explain the extraction process and answer any questions you may have, so you can feel confident and informed about your procedure.
Dental extractions are typically recommended when a tooth is damaged beyond repair, causing discomfort or pain. This can be due to injury, decay, or overcrowding. In some cases, a wisdom tooth may also need to be extracted if it is causing pain or crowding.
Dr. Marshall performs dental extractions with the utmost care and precision, ensuring that the procedure is as painless as possible. We also offer a range of sedation options, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation, to help you relax and feel comfortable throughout the extraction process.
After your extraction, it is important to follow Dr. Marshall’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of complications. This may include taking medication, avoiding hard or crunchy foods, and refraining from smoking or using straws.
