A dentist’s primary goal is to preserve and maintain your natural teeth. However, there are situations where the tooth preservation becomes inconvenient to the patient or impossible. In this case, tooth extraction is the best course of treatment to reduce the chance of infection, maintain your other teeth, and prepare the mouth for tooth replacement.
At Hekmat Dental Care, we offer comfortable tooth extraction in Rancho Bernardo, California. Our trained dental staff is equipped to ensure your tooth extraction is painless and beneficial to your oral health.

Why Would I Need a Tooth Extraction?
While a tooth extraction is not most patient’s first choice, it can be your best choice for reducing pain and preparing your mouth for more comprehensive teeth restoration.
Common reasons for a tooth extraction include:
- Severe tooth infection
- Removal of extra teeth, baby teeth, or wisdom teeth
- Failed root canal
- Preparation for elective cosmetic procedures
- Broken teeth
During your consultation at our Rancho Bernardo office, we will inform you of all options and options for teeth replacement after tooth extraction.
How is a Tooth Extraction Performed?
While a tooth extraction can seem intimidating, the procedure itself is very fast and painless. When you visit us at Hekmat Dental Care we will always start your treatment with a consultation to ensure a tooth extraction is the best course of treatment and inform you of all of your options.
Before your extraction, we completely numb the area with injectable anesthetics like lidocaine so you will not feel any pain. The extraction procedure itself takes less than 30 minutes.
Following your treatment we will give you complete instructions on aftercare and post-treatment options.
Can My Teeth Be Replaced After a Tooth Extraction?
Yes, at Hekmat Dental Care we offer several ways to ensure you have a beautiful smile after undergoing a tooth extraction.
Options for teeth replacement following extraction include:
- Dental implant: This option allows for the most natural restoration of teeth through porcelain teeth that perform very similarly to your natural ones.
- Dental Bridge: In some cases, a dental bridge can be attached to adjacent teeth to cover up gaps in your smile.
- Dentures: If you have had to have many teeth extracted, dentures can restore multiple teeth at once.
