"He cares so much. I never met any one like him. His staff is also wonderful."
A number of situations can cause a tooth to need extraction. Among the most common are:
There are two types of dental extractions: a simple extraction and a surgical extraction. Which Dr. Mikhli uses depends on whether the tooth is visible, or impacted beneath the gums, and whether it can easily be grabbed hold of. If the tooth is accessible, a simple extraction is performed. Dr. Mikhil first numbs the area by injecting a local anesthesia. Then, using a force, he wiggles the tooth until it’s loose enough to be removed. If the tooth is impacted or broken close to the gum line, a surgical extraction is performed by making an incision in the gum. Some patients request sedation for this procedure.
Over-the-counter pain medication is usually enough to alleviate any discomfort following simple extractions. A stronger pain medication is prescribed following more complicated procedures if needed. For the first 24 hours after the extraction, apply ice to the face to decrease swelling, eat a soft food diet and avoid rinsing, flossing or directly brushing the treated area. Patients, however, should continue to brush and floss the rest of their teeth.
