Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is interfering with your overall oral health and unable to be restored, the best alternative is to have it extracted.

What to Expect

As we plan for your treatment, our team will walk you through each step of the procedure so that you know exactly what to expect. Your dental extraction may be simple and straightforward or more of a minor oral surgery. Depending on the positioning of your tooth, we can let you know more of what is involved during the consultation.

In most cases, local numbing medication allows us to remove the tooth quickly and comfortably. More complex extractions such as those involving impacted wisdom teeth may need to be referred to a nearby oral surgeon.

After a dental extraction, make plans to avoid eating hard or crunchy foods until the surgical site has healed. If sutures are placed, they may dissolve on their own or need to be removed a week or two later. An over the counter anti-inflammatory and cold compress can keep soreness to a minimum.

Replacing Your Missing Tooth

If you haven’t already planned to put a tooth replacement in place of the one being removed, it’s a must-have for extractions that don’t involve wisdom teeth. Why? Because the now open space in your bite can change the alignment of the adjacent teeth as well as the ones on the opposite arch. A dental implant or porcelain bridge are wonderful options to consider.
