At Oak Park Dental Associates, we strive to help all of our patients save their teeth in cases of damage, decay or infection.
Our goal is to help your smile stay healthy and strong for the rest of your life. However, tooth extractions can be a necessary treatment to preserve or restore your overall oral health. If the tooth is severely injured or infected or you are experiencing crowding due to a small palate, a tooth extraction may be recommended to help you smile again.
If you’re experiencing a severe toothache, swelling, pain, or other signs of infection or injury, call our office. We offer same-day emergency appointments and extended hours to accommodate your needs. If an extraction is necessary, Dr. Lim will fit you in as soon as possible.
Wisdom teeth are your third set of molars and the last permanent teeth to erupt in the mouth. For most adults, wisdom teeth come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Some patients experience no complications when their wisdom teeth come in, but many others develop impacted wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can become impacted when the mouth is too crowded to allow the teeth erupt or another tooth is in the wisdom tooth’s path. This can cause pain, infections in the gums, and damage the surrounding teeth and jawbones.
If you’re suffering from impacted wisdom teeth or other dental complications, Dr. Lim recommends extraction to alleviate your pain and preserve the health of your other teeth. Call our team to schedule an appointment. We are standing by to help.
If you need a tooth extraction, call Oak Park Dental Associates. Our team will perform an examination and take X-rays to determine the condition of your tooth and risks of damage or infection to the surrounding tissues. Before your extraction, we will numb the tooth using a local anesthetic and administer sedation as necessary to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Dr. Lim and our team will then remove the tooth and pack the area with gauze. We may close the area with a stitch as necessary.
Following your procedure, Dr. Lim will have you bite down on a piece of sterile gauze to stop the bleeding until a blood clot can form. Pain and swelling are normal and should pass in two to three days. Dr. Lim may prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers as necessary to prevent infection and ease your discomfort in the days following your extraction. If you experience prolonged pain, bleeding or swelling following your procedure, be sure to call our office right away.
