Safe Tooth Extractions in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Dr. Stockdale Can Relieve Your Pain

Is tooth pain taking a toll on your lifestyle? When teeth become decayed or damaged, they can cause consistent, mild to severe oral pain. Fortunately, Dr. Stockdale can relieve your pain with tooth extraction and restore optimal oral health.

There are various reasons you may need a tooth extracted, such as:

  • An impacted wisdom tooth
  • Damaged, decayed, or overcrowded teeth
  • Severe trauma to the mouth, teeth, or gums
  • A primary tooth that fails to erupt properly

If you’re experiencing a severe toothache, it’s important to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stockdale at your earliest convenience. We’ll make sure the damage doesn’t compromise your gums or neighboring teeth to prevent further complications.

The Tooth Removal Process

The first step in the tooth removal process is to schedule a consultation with our Rancho Cucamonga dentist. We’ll examine your entire mouth to assess what’s causing your pain and the reason for extracting your tooth. If your tooth is severely decayed, broken, or results in complications with your gums and jawbone, it will most likely need to be removed.

Dr. Stockdale will recommend a personalized extraction plan dependent on the position of your affected tooth and the reason for removal. During the procedure, we’ll apply a local anesthetic around the area to alleviate any pain or discomfort you may experience. Special tools are used to safely lift or raise the tooth from the socket, eliminating the need for incisions.

However, if you need to extract a wisdom tooth, Dr. Stockdale will require gum tissue incisions for easier access to the complete root. We’ll provide you with safe dental sedation to ensure you feel comfortable and worry-free throughout the procedure.

Restoring Your Natural Smile

Recovering from your tooth extraction usually takes about 10 days. After the area has healed, you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment with Dr. Stockdale. He’ll explain our natural-looking, durable restoration options to fill in the gap in your smile. Dental implants are a great way to restore the beauty and function of your teeth, giving you a reason to smile with confidence.

Post-Removal Home Care

Getting your tooth removed is the most effective way to treat damage, prevent complications, and maintain good oral health. The first 24 hours after the extraction are critical in ensuring the surgical site heals successfully. That’s why it’s important to follow our patient-friendly tips on post-removal care:

  • Avoid smoking and tobacco products
  • Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication, as necessary
  • Eat soft foods for the first few days
  • Avoid extreme physical activity
  • Rinse your mouth with warm water at least 5 times a day
