Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in the U.S. Why? This bacterial infection attacks gum tissue, tooth roots and the bone structure underneath gums that support your teeth.

If you’re suffering from advanced gum disease, Dr. Li will do everything possible to treat the problem and save your tooth. However, in some cases, tooth loss is inevitable and tooth extraction is the best way to immediately start treating the issue and improve your dental health.

Can a periodontist extract teeth?

Our periodontist can not only expertly remove teeth, but can also treat the underlying reason for the extraction — for example, damaged gum and bone tissue, infection, or decay. Most importantly, we offer dental implant solutions to replace your tooth after an extraction. This offers you the convenience of having the extraction and rehabilitation performed in one office.

How do you know when a tooth needs to be pulled?

Dr. Li is dedicated to saving your teeth. However, there are situations where an extraction is the best option for improving the health of your smile. An extraction may be recommended if…

  • Your tooth is severely decayed or infected.
  • Your tooth is cracked and damaged beyond repair.
  • Overcrowding is causing problems for other teeth.
  • Gum disease has loosened your tooth’s foundation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat and drink immediately following an extraction?

We’ll ask you to stick to soft foods and liquids for about a day or so after your tooth is removed. Avoid sticky, sharp and crunchy foods until you’re fully healed.

How long does it take to recover after a dental extraction?

Most extractions can be completed very quickly, ensuring immediate relief from any pain or discomfort stemming from the damaged tooth. We’ll send you home with post-op instructions and check in on you to make sure you’re okay. Expect to take it easy for 48 to 72 hours.
