Removal Can Be Restorative

When dental trauma occurs or an untreated infection or disease causes a toothache, it may be necessary to undergo a tooth extraction to help ensure the preservation of your smile. Neglecting a damaged or abscessed tooth can have detrimental effects on your other teeth, oral health and even your physical well-being if it is related to gum disease. At ABQ Dental Implant Center, our dentists and team specialize in providing gentle tooth extractions, offering prompt relief from pain and safeguarding your smile from unnecessary harm. Through the use of sedation dentistry, a soothing atmosphere and affordable pricing options, we strive to make your tooth extraction procedure and the journey towards improved health remarkably convenient and hassle-free. Call us at 505-705-8808 to make an appointment with Dr. Jacob Rogers or Dr. Ozzie Rodas and learn more about tooth extractions in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Benefits Of A Tooth Extraction

The Proof Is In Our Patients


Our Tooth Extraction Process

During your initial consultation at ABQ Dental Implant Center, we’ll examine your problem tooth or teeth and determine if a tooth extraction is needed. We’re in-network with multiple leading insurance providers and will work with you to not only determine the best solution for your health but your finances as well. If you’re scheduled for tooth extraction in Albuquerque, NM, this means we were unable to preserve your natural tooth with more conservative measures or have deemed it unsalvageable due to infection, trauma, or another cause. You’ll receive your tooth extraction at a separate appointment. When you arrive, we’ll first ensure you are comfortable and then numb the gums around your tooth with a local anesthetic. Our patients report that though they experienced slight pressure during the procedure, they remained pain-free throughout their visit. We’ll then use forceps to grasp your tooth and gently remove it, being careful to not harm adjacent teeth or bone and gum tissue at the site. Our dentist and dental team routinely complete tooth extraction procedures and are skilled in making them efficient and comfortable. Before you know it, your procedure will be complete! Your healing period will last a few days, during which time you may take over-the-counter medication for any discomfort. We’ll review post-operative instructions and recommendations with you in detail to ensure a healthy and comfortable recovery.

After Your Tooth Extraction

After any tooth extraction, it’s critical that you take special steps to ensure the healing process goes as it should. A blood clot typically forms over an empty tooth socket during healing. If this doesn’t happen or if the blood clot is removed, the bone and nerves below the socket become exposed. This results in a painful complication called dry socket. You can prevent dry socket and ensure a smooth recovery by following the post-extraction guidelines we’ll review in detail with you after your surgery.

Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment, though. We recommend many patients replace their extracted tooth, and generally encourage dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
