Visit Bright Now! Dental in Los Angeles for dental extractions (teeth removal). If you need to have a dental extraction performed, your health and comfort are our top priorities.
During your dental exam, we’ll take an x-ray to evaluate the extent of damage or infection present to determine if removing the tooth is necessary. Wisdom teeth, damaged teeth, crowded gumline, tooth decay, or an infected tooth are some of the most common instances where a tooth extraction procedure is recommended.
We make it a priority to protect, repair, and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. Unfortunately, sometimes issues such as tooth decay or traumatic injuries can affect whether or not the tooth is restorable.
At Bright Now! Los Angeles, we make affordable tooth extractions a reality. Instead of suffering through a painful tooth infection, we make it easy to access the care you deserve. Our experienced dentists offer several types of tooth extractions, ranging from emergency procedures to wisdom tooth extractions. Plus, we offer a variety of tooth replacement solutions to restore your smile after having a dental extraction.
Book a consultation today at a Bright Now! Dental in Los Angeles to receive a personalized treatment plan. Don’t wait to restore and perfect your beautiful smile!
My experience at Brite Dental was amazing. They made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I am getting a replacement tooth. Yay.
Excellent experience and friendly staff.
On 3-30-23 I had a very bad tooth ache and I went to this dental office for the first time and they were all so nice. The doctor was amazing he pulled my tooth out and when I left I felt so much better. I really appreciate their kindness and I will be going back.

I just started coming here and im glad i did! The receptionist was very polite as well as the office manager as for the assistant in the back yeah she was kind of rude but overall a great experience.
Always a positive experience the staff is very friendly and make sure that you're aware of your appointments and they are very helpful with any questions. I accidentally missed my appointment I was able to call 15 minutes after my appointment and I was able to schedule my appointment later on that day even though it was entirely on my fault the staff was not going to let me miss my appointment they offered to take me in soon as they could.
Rest: Immediately after the extraction, it’s important to take it easy. Rest for at least 24 hours to allow your body to begin the healing process.
Bite on Gauze: Your dentist will provide you with sterile gauze pads. Bite gently on these pads over the extraction site to help control bleeding. Change them as needed, following your dentist’s instructions.
Apply Ice: To minimize swelling and discomfort, apply an ice pack wrapped in a cloth to your cheek for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off during the first 24 hours.
Maintain Oral Hygiene: While you should avoid the extraction site when brushing and flossing, continue to clean your other teeth and gums gently. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and rinse your mouth with warm saltwater (if advised by your dentist) to keep the area clean.
Eat a Soft Diet: Stick to a soft diet for a few days. Opt for foods like yogurt, applesauce, mashed potatoes, smoothies, and soups. Avoid hot, spicy, crunchy, or hard foods that could irritate the extraction site.
Follow-Up Appointments: Attend any follow-up appointments scheduled by your dentist to monitor your healing progress. They will remove any stitches if necessary and assess your recovery.
Be Patient with Healing: Remember that the full healing process may take several weeks. Be patient, and follow your dentist’s instructions diligently to ensure a successful and comfortable recovery.
No Smoking: Smoking can impede the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Avoid tobacco products for at least 72 hours after extraction, if not longer.
Avoid Straws: Sipping through straws creates suction in your mouth, which can dislodge the blood clot that forms in the extraction site. Skip the straws for the first few days.
Don’t Rinse Vigorously: Refrain from rinsing your mouth vigorously for the initial 24 hours. Gently rinse with warm saltwater if instructed by your dentist.
Don’t Touch the Site: Avoid touching or probing the extraction site with your fingers or tongue. Keep your hands and foreign objects away from the area to prevent infection.
Don’t Skip Medications: If your dentist has prescribed pain medication or antibiotics, take them as directed. Skipping doses can lead to increased discomfort or complications.
Skip Alcohol and Mouthwash: Avoid alcoholic beverages and mouthwash with high alcohol content, as they can delay healing and cause discomfort.
Resist the Urge to Spit Excessively: Excessive spitting can disrupt the blood clot formation, which is crucial for healing. Swallow saliva gently.
Don’t Ignore Complications: If you experience severe pain, prolonged bleeding, fever, or any signs of infection, do not ignore them. Contact your dentist promptly for guidance.
Stay Away from Hot Beverages: Hot drinks can increase blood flow to the extraction site and may lead to prolonged bleeding. Stick to cool or lukewarm beverages.
Avoid Chewing on the Extraction Side: Do not use the side of your mouth where the extraction occurred for chewing until your dentist gives the green light.
