Preserving Your Dental Health with Expert Tooth Extractions at Stephen Cheung DDS, Lodi, CA

At Stephen Cheung DDS, we understand that sometimes the removal of a troublesome tooth is essential for maintaining your overall dental health. Whether it’s due to severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, or orthodontic reasons, our team in Lodi, CA, led by Dr. Cheung, offers safe, compassionate, and effective tooth extraction services.

When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
  • Severe Decay: Removal is sometimes the best option when decay is beyond repair.
  • Advanced Periodontal Disease: We extract teeth to prevent further infection and damage.
  • Irreparable Damage: Teeth broken at the gum line or in a way that they cannot be restored.
  • Orthodontic Preparation: Extracting teeth to make room for orthodontic treatments.
  • Impacted Teeth: Commonly wisdom teeth, that are incorrectly positioned or lack space.
The Tooth Extraction Procedure at Stephen Cheung DDS

Your comfort is our priority. We ensure a pain-free experience with local anesthesia. The process includes:

  • Gentle Removal: We carefully rock the tooth to loosen and extract it painlessly.
  • Surgical Extractions: For complex cases like impacted teeth, we provide detailed consultations and expert surgical care.

Post-Extraction Care Guidelines

  • Rest and Recovery: Avoid heavy activities for a day.
  • Swelling Management: Use an ice pack as needed.
  • Soft Diet: Stick to easy-to-eat foods.
  • Avoid Certain Activities: No smoking or using straws to prevent dry sockets.
  • Follow Up Care: Adhere to prescribed medications and care instructions.
