What to Know About Tooth Extraction
There are a few different reasons a patient might need to have a tooth pulled, such as overcrowding, tooth decay, or other dental issues.
We offer two main types of tooth extraction: simple and surgical. A simple extraction can be performed when the tooth is visible above the gumline, while a surgical procedure is necessary for teeth, like wisdom teeth, that have not yet erupted.
Depending on the anesthesia used for your procedure, you may not be able to drive yourself home after your appointment. For example, wisdom tooth extractions can sometimes require a stronger form of sedation. Our team will discuss your procedure with you beforehand so you can make sure to arrange transportation if needed.
Aftercare is extremely important when it comes to tooth extraction. Eat soft foods and avoid drinking through a straw to give the area time to heal. You should also avoid smoking and tobacco to keep your mouth clean and healthy.
Our team will discuss your pain management options with you before your procedure to help you through any discomfort. Be gentle when you clean the area so you don’t disrupt the healing process. If you experience any bleeding that doesn’t seem to stop on its own, call our office right away.
