Tooth Extractions

When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

A tooth extraction may be necessary in several scenarios, such as:

  • Severe tooth decay that cannot be treated with a filling or crown.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain or potential for infection.
  • Teeth overcrowding, often in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
  • Teeth that are severely broken or damaged beyond repair.

What Is the Procedure for a Tooth Extraction?

The procedure begins with a thorough examination and X-rays. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area. If the tooth is impacted, a minor surgical procedure might be required. The tooth is then gently removed, and the area is cleaned and sutured if necessary.

What Should I Expect After a Tooth Extraction?

After the extraction, it’s normal to experience some discomfort and swelling. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions, which may include:

  • Pain management recommendations.
  • Guidelines on eating and drinking post-extraction.
  • Instructions on maintaining oral hygiene while avoiding the extraction site.
  • A follow-up appointment to monitor healing.
