Restore Your Oral Health and Resolve Discomfort with Emergency Tooth Extractions
We understand your desire to preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime. That’s why we provide a range of restorative dental care procedures, including dental crowns, fillings, root canals, and more, to safeguard your teeth from damage and decay. However, extraction may be necessary when a tooth is beyond restoration.
Signature Smiles Dental in Riverside, California, offers emergency dental extractions to relieve discomfort and prevent issues with other teeth.
The need for emergency tooth removal
Emergency dentistry involves urgent dental care that can’t wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. Common dental emergencies include cracked or knocked-out teeth, dental abscesses, bleeding gums, and dislodged crowns or fillings.
Drs. Geomel Brian Bebing and Harun Ayouby will do everything to preserve your teeth. However, in some cases, you may need emergency dental extraction. Here are the signs you need tooth removal within the next 24-48 hours.
- Dental abscess: When infection forms at the end of the root or bone-supporting structures, your dentist will diagnose you with a dental abscess. This condition causes extreme discomfort, although some patients might not experience discomfort but will notice pus oozing from the infected tooth or gums. Dental abscesses need urgent care to prevent the infection from spreading to the surrounding tissues
- Root canal failure: Although we try our best to perform successful root canals, root canal failure can sometimes occur. Increased discomfort, swelling, soreness, and the presence of pus are tell-tale signs of a failed root canal. Root canal retreatment and apicoectomy are all excellent choices to give your treated tooth a second chance, but we’ll recommend extraction if your tooth is beyond restoration
- Impacted wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth or third molars are common for patients aged 17-25. These latecomers sprout when your jaw has limited space to accommodate extra teeth. Due to space limitations, your wisdom tooth may remain trapped (impacted) beneath your gum line. While some people can live with their third molars, your dentist will recommend removal if the impacted wisdom teeth cause discomfort and put the surrounding teeth at risk of infection
- Severely damaged/decayed teeth: Sports and vehicular accidents or biting hard substances may fracture your tooth. If your tooth has a significant fracture or is broken below the gum line, you’ll need extraction to restore your dental health. Similarly, if decay has compromised most of your tooth’s healthy structure, removing it will be the best course of action
We use the latest technologies and light touch techniques to perform gentle dental extractions. We also know that losing a tooth leaves a gap that affects your smile and oral function. We offer various teeth replacement options to address tooth loss for a complete, functional smile.
