Benefits of Tooth Removal
If tooth removal is your best option, you can trust Dr. Yemoto to make your procedure pleasant and painless. Our San Jose team is highly trained to ensure your comfort and relaxation while you have your tooth pulled.
Some of the benefits of tooth extraction include:

Dr. Yemoto will administer local anesthesia to numb the area, and then carefully loosen and remove the tooth. Once your tooth extraction is complete, you’ll be a better you with a healthier smile.
Post Tooth Extraction Care
After you have had a tooth pulled, you will be on the recovery track for a week or two. You will experience some swelling and minimal discomfort. Your doctor will suggest an over the counter or prescription pain reliever so that you can manage your pain at home.
Use an ice pack to reduce swelling and take it easy for a few days. Keep your hands away from the tooth extraction site and do not rinse your mouth for one day. Return again to our office shortly to ensure proper healing and discuss tooth replacement methods with Dr. Yemoto.
