My Mother Was In Great Hands

“My mother has had a life-long fear of dentistry but when she was visiting me she complained that her tooth was really hurting her. So I made an appointment for her with Dr. Alder. The entire staff was so great to her. They made such an effort to be kind with her and distract her by getting her talking about her visit and the grandkids. Dr. Alder was very patient when explaining that she had two teeth that were so badly decayed they would need to be extracted and given her fear explained the sedation options with her. Her avoidance of dentistry still remains but she felt so well cared for that on her next visit I was able to convince her to return for implants to replace the teeth she had lost. The care they took with my mother meant so much and I would recommend Newport Beach Dental to anyone!”

No Need to Fear at Newport Beach Dental

We all know tooth extraction can be a scary thing and it is a common reaction to avoid those things we fear. However, when you visit Newport Beach Dental for your tooth extraction, you can expect our team to treat you with the utmost care and compassion and perform your extraction quickly and as comfortably as possible. The team is focused on making the experience a positive one. Dr. Alder is highly skilled at extractions and is very careful to make sure that the area around the tooth is completely numbed with an effective local anesthetic before beginning the extraction. If you suffer from dental phobia or have greater than average anxiety, Dr Alder can discuss your dental sedation options as well.

Our Care Follows You Home After Tooth Extraction Surgery

There is always a recovery period after tooth extraction as with any other surgical procedure. At Newport Beach Dental, it is our practice to check up on each patient after surgery and make sure you are doing well. We also make sure to go over detailed instructions with you to avoid developing an infection in the area that your tooth was extracted and to make your recovery as quick and comfortable as possible. We recommend rinsing your mouth with a warm salt water solution several times a day in order to further reduce swelling and relieve pain. As your local Newport Beach dentist, we are only a phone call away and are eager to help you with your recovery. Call us anytime at (949) 642-2300.

Your Options After A Tooth Extraction

After your extraction, you may want to consider options to restore your bite. When a tooth is lost it can lead to a shifting of the remaining teeth as well as bone loss within the jaw. We often recommend a dental implant, which is a titanium peg implanted into the jaw bone on which a crown can be attached. The implant looks and feels like a natural tooth and the titanium peg keeps bone loss from occurring in your jaw. There are other options that we can discuss such as a bridge or partial denture. Contact us online and we’ll be happy to go over all the options with you.

Tooth Extraction May Not Be Necessary

Patients often come to us with extraordinary pain due to infection and dreading a possible extraction. Before an extraction, Dr. Alder will examine the tooth thoroughly to assess whether the tooth might be saved with root canal therapy. With a root canal, Dr. Alder removes the infected tissue and seals your tooth with a crown to protect it rather than extracting the tooth. If you’re considering tooth extraction, in Newport Beach , please come in for a visit and let us go over all your options so that you can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
