Tooth Extraction, Moreno Valley, California
A painful toothache can be a real dental emergency. As cavities and dental decay eat away at the important nerves and blood vessels keeping your tooth alive, immediate action is needed to save the tooth. Sometimes, however, that’s not always possible. When that’s the case, our fast-responding dentists at Gold Coast Dental Moreno Valley are always willing and able to help you with your necessary emergency tooth extraction.
An emergency tooth removal may be needed if: the tooth is too damaged and decayed that it can’t be saved, even with a root canal. A removal may also be needed if periodontal disease has badly destroyed the gum and bones supporting your tooth, overcrowding is ruining or harming your smile, or if impacted teeth are painful or damaging nearby teeth. Dental trauma or an accident has broken or fractured the tooth beyond repair may be reason for a removal as well.
Our dentists and oral surgeons have years of experience giving our patients the treatment they need without any pain or discomfort, dental extractions included. Even on short notice, we never hesitate to give you the best possible care and treatment. Immediate toothache relief is just around the corner!

Your Tooth Replacement Options
We make sure you can restore your beautiful smile on your terms
A dental implant is a fully artificial tooth, complete with root and crown, to allow it to behave just like a real tooth. Implants are made of three main components: a metal implant surgically inserted into the jaw to act as the root, a porcelain or ceramic crown to look and function just like an enamel crown, and an abutment piece that connects the two together. Due to their cost, however, implants are usually preferred when replacing only one or two teeth.
When replacing one or more missing teeth in a row, a dental bridge is another great option. Bridges are a single piece composed of two porcelain dental crowns attached to a false tooth or teeth between them. The two teeth on either end of the gap left behind by the missing teeth are shaved down and capped with the porcelain crowns. These crowns then act as anchors for the connected false teeth to bridge the empty space between.
Removable dentures are an extremely flexible prosthetic option, able to replace anywhere between one or all of your teeth as needed. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in a single area of your mouth, while full dentures can restore a full arch or mouth. Removable dentures are custom made from impressions taken of your mouth to ensure that your new teeth look just as real or even better than your old teeth. Using a gum-pink acrylic base and durable, tooth-colored composite resin, even you’ll have a hard time believing your smile isn’t natural.

The Tooth Extraction Process
Our Moreno Valley dentists and oral surgeons are experts at quick and painless tooth removal
Although it has a fearsome reputation, the tooth removal process is often misunderstood. What is tooth extraction exactly? An extraction is the simple and painless way of removing a damaged, potentially dangerous, or unwanted tooth in order to keep your smile beautiful and healthy. With our high-grade local anesthetic, you won’t feel a thing throughout your procedure besides some minor pressure as we work.
There are two types of teeth extraction methods:
Simple Extraction: When a damaged tooth is visible and fully erupted from the gum, your dentist will perform a simple extraction. Using a tool called an elevator, the tooth will be
loosened from its secure position and then removed with dental forceps.
Surgical Extraction: For teeth that are partially or completely submerged beneath the gum line, a surgical extraction will be needed instead. Once the area around the tooth is fully numbed, your oral surgeon will make a small incision in your gum to easily access and remove the tooth. This is the method we use for impacted wisdom teeth removal. If you have any questions about the extraction process, you can reach our Moreno Valley dental team at (951) 488-8688 today!
How common is tooth extraction?
Tooth removal is an extremely popular dental procedure, especially among young adults who need a wisdom tooth extraction. Around 10 million wisdom teeth alone are removed every year in the United States. Over the decades that dentists have been extracting teeth, we’ve perfected the art of it so that your procedure is quick, safe, and painless for you.
What does tooth extraction cost?
The cost of your dental extraction depends on a variety of factors: the type of extraction (simple or surgical), the complexity of the extraction, and the type of tooth to be extracted. Impacted teeth, for example, can be more costly than fully erupted teeth. However, an impacted wisdom tooth removals tends to be just as affordable as a standard simple extraction.
Does a tooth extraction hurt?
Our dentists and oral surgeons ensure that you’re always fully comfortable throughout the extraction process. We’re able to thoroughly numb the area around the tooth with our powerful anesthetic, so you never feel more than some light pressure as we work, even during a surgical extraction.
Is it really necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth?
At our Moreno Valley office, we believe that a tooth should be pulled only when absolutely necessary because we want your smile to remain as intact and healthy as possible. When a wisdom tooth is fully or partially impacted, it can cause major problems for you if left alone. With early extraction, we can stop those complications before they ever appear. Fully submerged teeth can damage other teeth and lead to cysts and tumors, while partially emerged teeth are difficult to properly take care of and are hotbeds for infection and gum disease.
What is the best option for replacing missing teeth?
A dental implant is the best tooth replacement option available, acting as a full artificial tooth from crown to root. Porcelain implants look, feel, and behave just like a natural tooth, and they can last you up to 25 or 30 years with proper care and attention. Because they are surgically implanted and fused to the jaw, these replacement teeth prevent your bone from weakening or deteriorating and even promote bone regeneration. Dental implants are also super easy to clean and don’t require any food restrictions or care instructions like other dental prosthetics.
Is it OK not to replace a missing tooth?
While not absolutely necessary, we highly recommend that you never leave a missing tooth without a replacement. Not only does the space left behind ruin the look of your smile, but it will cause the jawbone below to deteriorate and the nearby teeth to shift into the deepening hole. This will create even more gaps between your teeth and leave your neighboring teeth vulnerable to dental decay and infection. At its worst, those teeth may also need to be extracted.
