Symptoms Addressed by Oral Surgery

What are Teeth Extractions?

Tooth extraction is not a first-line treatment, but sometimes it’s the best way to preserve your oral health. When a tooth is severely damaged – whether due to decay, trauma, or disease – it may not be possible to repair it with fillings, crowns, or other treatments. In such cases, extraction is necessary to prevent the spread of infection and alleviate pain.

For individuals requiring oral surgery, Smile Mantra Family Dentistry, under the guidance of Dr. Kulhari, delivers expert and minimally invasive tooth extraction procedures. Our focus is on maintaining your oral health and ensuring a comfortable experience throughout the process.

Proactive Steps for Dental Health

Preventing the need for tooth extraction primarily involves maintaining excellent oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing, combined with routine dental check-ups, can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which are the leading causes of tooth loss.

A balanced diet low in sugary foods and drinks can also contribute significantly to oral health, as it helps prevent tooth decay. If you participate in sports, wearing a mouthguard can protect your teeth from injury and potential extraction.

Promising Prospects for Your Smile

While tooth extraction is a significant dental procedure, it can greatly enhance a patient’s oral health and quality of life. After recovery, options like implants, bridges, or dentures can restore the function and appearance of the mouth. At Smile Mantra Family Dentistry we are dedicated to ensuring that every patient enjoys the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile.


What are some common reasons for tooth extraction?

Tooth extractions may be required due to severe tooth decay, infection, gum disease, crowded teeth, or an impacted tooth. It’s a standard procedure performed to alleviate pain and prevent further oral health complications.


How is a tooth extraction performed at Smile Mantra Family Dentistry?

The tooth extraction process begins with a thorough examination and X-ray analysis by Dr. Kulhari. The area is then numbed with local anesthesia, and the tooth is carefully extracted using specialized dental instruments. Aftercare instructions are provided to ensure a smooth recovery.


Is tooth extraction a painful procedure?

We prioritize patient comfort. Before the extraction, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area, which significantly reduces pain during the procedure. Post-extraction discomfort can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and following the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Kulhari.
