Dr. Wali Hamidy has over a decade of experience giving tooth extractions to those patients who are in need of them. Generally, we try to avoid extractions at all costs, but if a tooth has decayed to the point of no return, if the tooth is provoking other dental problems, or if a tooth is affecting the growth of other teeth, extraction will be necessary. The procedure will be short and over before you know it. After taking x-rays to create a plan of action, Dr. Hamidy will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic, and pull the tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Like with regular tooth extractions, Dr. Hamidy has more than enough experience relieving patients of pain caused from wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth begin growing in, oftentimes there is either not enough room in your mouth to accommodate them, or they are impacted. Both of these instances will result in the need for wisdom teeth extraction. We will review your x-rays as well as discuss all options with you to address any concerns you might have before going through with the procedure. Your wisdom tooth removal procedure will be similar to any tooth extraction unless the tooth is impacted. Then it will require cutting into the gums as well as taking the tooth out piece by piece.
Emergencies happen, whether you knocked a tooth out, a filling, or a crown fell off, please give us a call the moment you have dental emergency. Our friendly dentist and staff will do their best to accommodate you by finding the time to see you the same day as your emergency. If you are not sure if you have an emergency or not, give us a call and we will tell you. For your dental exam, it will cost $60 for the initial exam and any necessary x-rays. If you need any extended work, our dentist office in La Jolla also offers payment plans for approved credit.
