Tooth Extractions

You and Dr. Guorgui may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. Guorgui will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

The Tooth Extraction Process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

Sectioning a Tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

The removal of my wisdom tooth was seamless/smooth with no issues from start to finish. From Dr.Bhadwar's staff regarding scheduling, including reminders, to Dr.Guorgui's staff being efficient and knowledgeable with their tasks, to the extraction by Dr.Guorgi. I was informed that there would be a follow up call by the nurse and she called right on time.

I have a severe anxiety disorder, and was extremely upset and nervous before surgery. The doctor and his team made me feel safe and uncomfortable, and eased all my worries. I had a fantastic experience and haven't stopped telling people about it!
