Is a tooth extraction
a dental emergency?

You may need an emergency tooth extraction

A tooth extraction is generally not considered a dental emergency unless there are specific circumstances, such as:

  • severe infection
  • trauma resulting in significant pain and bleeding 
  • tooth impacted and causing intense discomfort

In such cases, seeking immediate dental care is advisable to prevent complications and alleviate pain. However, for routine extractions due to decay or orthodontic purposes, scheduling an appointment during regular office hours is typically sufficient.

Options after a tooth extraction

After having a tooth extracted, there are several options available to restore function and aesthetics. The links and explanations below may help guide you after having a tooth extracted.

  • Dental Implants: Implants are a popular option for replacing a missing tooth. They involve placing a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as a stable foundation for a custom-made artificial tooth (crown). Dental implants look and function like natural teeth.
  • Dental Bridges: Bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by dental crowns on adjacent teeth or implants. They are used to bridge the gap created by the extracted tooth, restoring chewing function and preventing neighboring teeth from shifting.
  • Dentures: Partial or full dentures may be used to replace multiple missing teeth. They are removable appliances that mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth, providing support for facial muscles and improving speech and chewing ability.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: If the extraction was performed to address overcrowding or misalignment issues, orthodontic treatment (such as braces or clear aligners) may be recommended to align the remaining teeth properly.

The choice of replacement option depends on factors such as the location of the extracted tooth, overall oral health, budget considerations, and personal preferences. Consulting Talega Dental Group in San Clemente can help determine the most suitable option for your individual case.
