In order to overcome the challenge of adequately anesthetizing infected teeth, we use a buffering system that helps to neutralize the acidity and helps to get the tooth numb quicker and more comfortably.

A tooth is held in place by a periodontal ligament which is an elastic tissue that connects the root of the tooth to the bone. Ligaments connect bone to bone, while tendons connect bone to muscles. The periodontal ligament that holds the tooth in place is the reason why you feel how hard you’re biting, and why you can feel when something is stuck between your teeth. The most comfortable extraction is done by patiently “wiggling” the tooth, which causes the periodontal ligament to stretch and loosen, and the tooth comes out without the patient feeling much force. After the tooth is out, it is important to remove the remaining fibers of the periodontal ligament as well as any infection, so that the cells from the bone migrate into the void and fill it with natural bone.

After the extraction, we rinse the area with ozone, as it helps with the healing and with reducing bacteria in the extraction socket. If an implant is planned for the area, it is sometimes best to place a PRF graft, which is obtained from your own blood plasma. It is not a requirement by any means, but does help to preserve the socket and expedite the healing so that there is adequate bone for a future implant placement.


There are a variety of ways to take care of this: implants, bridges, removable dentures. In office, together with the doctor will be decided what treatment option suits the patient better.

Tooth extraction can be necessary for a variety of reasons, especially when your tooth is not in its best condition, such as decay and damage. A tooth extraction will help improve your overall dental health by eliminating bacteria build-up.
Local anesthesia will be provided prior to the extraction procedure to ensure that the area is adequately numb. Your dentist will use a n number of instruments to loosen the tooth and then wiggle it out of its socket.
It may take between two to three weeks (14-21 days) before your gum heals.
There will be some discomfort such as swelling, pain, and bleeding. Should it be excessive, you may need to contact your dentist.
Use ice packs for the swelling, manage pain with over-the-counter analgesic meds, and follow an all-liquid diet for the time being until your gum heals.
