What Is an Extraction?
A tooth extraction is a common dental procedure where a dentist or oral surgeon removes a tooth to improve your oral health. Dental extractions may be necessary for multiple reasons and span all age groups. Whether your child needs a stubborn milk tooth extracted to make way for their permanent tooth or you have impacted wisdom teeth, you can rely on our friendly team to offer the services you and your loved ones need.
Why Would I Need a Tooth Extraction?
Our team is passionate about protecting your natural smile and overall oral health. That is why we only perform tooth extractions when necessary. However, there are many reasons that a tooth may require removal. If your child's milk teeth are not allowing their adult teeth to erupt properly, then an extraction may be necessary to prevent bite alignment problems and protect their adult teeth from damage.
Adults often require dental extractions because their third set of molars, also called wisdom teeth, do not erupt properly. If not extracted, the wisdom teeth can push your other teeth out of alignment, or they may not erupt fully and become infected.
Dental trauma is another common reason for tooth extractions. If an accident or injury results in a tooth that is damaged beyond repair, then the tooth will need to be extracted to protect your oral health. Untreated dental trauma can cause decay and infection to spread, and it's vital to protect your neighboring teeth and your overall health.
Our Dental Extraction Process
When you or your loved one needs a tooth extraction, it's vital that you feel confident in the procedure and the team performing the treatment. That is why we take the time to talk with you and explain such points as why dental extraction may be necessary, what you can expect during the procedure, and aftercare to promote faster healing.
We begin with a gentle and thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums and take digital scans to gather the necessary information and create your personalized treatment plan. Our team will share the results of the exam with you and discuss your options. We will do everything possible to save your natural tooth structure, but when an extraction is necessary, we offer sedation to help you feel relaxed and peaceful.
Our dentist will numb the affected area to maximize your comfort and then gently extract the tooth. We may use an antibiotic solution or place stitches in complex extractions. Next, our gentle dentist will place gauze over the socket and provide tips and instructions for your homecare. We will set up a follow-up appointment to check on your recovery progress. If you selected oral sedation for your procedure, our team will recommend that you coordinate with a friend or family member to drive you home after treatment.
Tooth Extraction FAQs
We are advocates for open discussion, and we encourage you to ask questions and share your concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental extractions.
Our dentist numbs the area before beginning the procedure. We also offer sedation options such as nitrous oxide and oral sedation to help you feel calm and relaxed during the treatment.
Our team will provide helpful tips and instructions for homecare after your tooth extraction. It's important to eat soft foods while you recover and avoid using a straw or tobacco products because they can dislodge the protective blood clot your body naturally forms over the socket.
This depends on the reason for the dental extraction. If your wisdom teeth have been removed, then you will take time to heal. However, if you have tooth extraction as part of a treatment plan like implant-supported dentures, our team will coordinate with you for the next stage of your plan.
