Emergency Tooth Extraction

Mid-Wilshire Dental Care will always attempt to save your tooth before deciding to extract it. It is our goal to get you out of pain and get your dental health back on track. Tooth pain IS a dental emergency - so don’t delay.

There are times that despite our regular dental hygiene, a tooth has decayed to the point where it cannot be fixed. Sometimes, this happens due to an injury. When a tooth is beyond repair, an extraction may be needed. If you are in severe pain, there may be an infection or an abscess. Abscesses and infections are dental emergencies and need to be treated in a timely manner. At Mid-Wilshire Dental Care, we will do everything we can to save your natural tooth before an extraction. If Dr. Bijan Afar deems that we must do an extraction, then we will do our best to make sure that it is as painless as possible. Our highly skilled staff uses only the best in modern treatments and technology so that your extraction will be performed thoroughly and efficiently. Again, severe dental pain is a dental emergency.

Considering a Tooth Extraction?

We will only ever recommend a tooth be extracted in cases of severe decay, severe gum disease, or orthodontic treatment.

    New Technology: We now have more options than ever for restoring and saving teeth.
    Implants: Replace a roken or decayed tooth with natural looking tooth implants.
    Medications: Prior to any extraction treatment, let us know if you're on any medications so we can coordinate with your doctor.
    Sedation: Sedation is a great way to avoid any unnecessary pain or anxiety.

“I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for your fantastic care of my wife last night. It was unsettling to have to have a tooth extraction, especially while so far away from home, but you and your staff were wonderful and made our experience very comfortable. Your quality and integrity as a doctor and, more fundamentally, as a person, shine through. We can’t thank you enough!”
