See Us for Tooth Extractions in Issaquah, WA

At Eastside Modern Dentistry, our goal is to help you preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. However, if you have a tooth that is severely damaged or infected, our Issaquah, WA dentist may recommend a tooth extraction which is the complete removal of a tooth. We understand that it can be stressful and worrisome to learn you need to have a tooth removed. However, we’ll provide you with anesthesia to ensure you don’t feel any pain while the tooth is being removed from your mouth.

Reasons for Issaquah Tooth Extractions

  • Dr. Bajwa or Dr. Wong may recommend an extraction in the following situations:
  • Extensive decay or damage of a tooth
  • Severe infection of a tooth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • In preparation for orthodontic treatment if there is overcrowding of the teeth

Signs Indicating You May Need a Tooth Extraction

  • If you’re experiencing any of the following signs that may indicate you need to have a tooth extracted, we encourage you to contact our office right away:
  • Intense discomfort or pain in a tooth or your jaw
  • Pain or discomfort when biting down or chewing
  • Any signs of pus or bleeding around a tooth

What to Expect

When you visit us to have a tooth extracted, you can expect the following to occur:

  • Dr. Bajwa or Dr. Wong will numb your tooth, jawbone, and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic
  • During the extraction process, you will not feel any pain but you will feel quite a bit of pressure. This pressure is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.
  • Once the tooth has been removed, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and gauze will be applied to stop the bleeding

After an extraction, we may recommend replacing that missing tooth with a dental implant that will look, feel, and function just like the tooth you lost. Other tooth replacement options we may recommend include dentures and dental bridges. Before you leave our office, we’ll provide you with some aftercare instructions to help ensure the area heals completely without any problems developing.
