Teeth Extractions

Our goal is to maintain your natural teeth for as long as possible. Unfortunately, there may come a time when it is necessary to have a tooth extracted. If you have a broken, damaged or decayed tooth, the dentist can repair it with a filling, crown or other dental treatment; but sometimes, when the tooth is severely damaged, the doctor may have no choice but to remove the tooth.

There are basically two kinds of extractions: a simple extraction, when the dentist releases the tooth using an instrument called an elevator, and a surgical extraction is when the tooth has cracked off at the gum line or has not fully erupted through the gum line. At our offices in North Hollywood and Montebello, our staff is trained in tooth extractions, especially in the removal of Wisdom Teeth.

At Pacific Dental Group, we recommend you remove your wisdom teeth before they become a problem. You will receive a complete oral exam, including a full set of X-rays, to determine the size and position of the teeth. During a consultation, we will assist you in understanding the extraction procedure and discuss with you the different types of anesthesia available. The staff at Pacific Dental Group is trained in various types of anesthetics to make you feel more comfortable during the procedure.

Some important things you should know about having your wisdom teeth removed.

  • Removal of wisdom teeth is necessary when they grow sideways, remain trapped beneath the gum and bone, or are impacted or stuck in the jawbone.
  • The extraction of wisdom teeth is a common procedure.
  • It is usually wiser to remove your wisdom teeth before they pose a problem.
  • If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection, stiffness and pain.
  • A tumor can form around the impacted tooth, resulting in the destruction of neighboring teeth.

I was so chicken and now I can't see myself going to any other dentist! High five to my hygienist Danny who was super gentle and thorough with my deep cleaning of my teeth!!! Thank you guys for the awesome experience with all my visits. See your guys soon."

"Great Dentist, Great Staff. At 57 years-old, I've had several root canals, crowns, bridges, fillings, and extractions from many dentists, some who even advertise on radio. Having tooth-pain and not willing to wait 3 weeks for my regular dentist, I went to Dr. Julius in Montebello. I got an appointment the next day and two days later had major dental work on several of my teeth. (I just got home.) I had work done by Dr. Julius and 2 other dental specialists, also dealing with 2 other people of the excellent office staff there. Dentistry is both a preffession and a busines. Or is going to a restaurant only about the chef, and not the service? They didn't serve me food. They took care of my sh*t. Each and every one of them, all seeking the same outcome: to help me. Dr. Julius could advertise on radio, with higher prices. Maybe even on TV. I watched the finals of 'America's Got Talent' last night. Unfortunately, there were no dental offices on display. When it comes to dentistry and my teeth, I know talent. I watched the winners today."

"After looking for a new dentist. I settle for PDG as was greeted very nicely and the front receptionist was very sweet. The dentist & his asst. were very pleasant. I'll be staying for all my future dental visits and I can't wait to see how my new smile turns out. I really recommend this place to anybody who is a first time patients. Excellent service and reasonable prices, and cleans establishment, very professional but friendly as well."

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."

"High Quality, Professional, Trustworthy. Going to the dentist usually makes people nervous, but the atmosphere here is so lighthearted and relaxing. You're definitely in good hands and won't have to worry about anything. Dr. Julius is very interactive, kind, and mindful of your comfort level at all times and it's so relieving to know that she knows what she's doing. My best dental experience by far :)"
