When are Tooth Extractions Necessary?
- Severe tooth decay: When tooth decay has reached the point where it has damaged the structure of the tooth, an extraction may be the best option to prevent further damage or infection.
- Impacted teeth: Teeth that are unable to erupt through the gum line, such as impacted wisdom teeth, can cause pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. In these cases, extraction is necessary to alleviate discomfort and protect your oral health.
- Orthodontic treatment: In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create space for proper tooth alignment during orthodontic treatment.
- Trauma or injury: Accidents can sometimes cause irreparable damage to the teeth, necessitating extraction.
What to Expect with a Tooth Extraction Procedure
Before the Procedure
At Care Dental Implant & Invisalign Center, our dental professionals will perform a thorough examination, including X-rays, to determine the best approach for your tooth extraction. We will also discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking to ensure there are no complications during the procedure. We’ll also discuss anesthesia options and post-operative care instructions to help you prepare for a smooth recovery.
During the Procedure
Our skilled dental professionals will administer local anesthesia during the tooth extraction to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Sedation options may also be available for more complex extractions, such as impacted wisdom teeth. Once the area is numb, our team will carefully remove the tooth using specialized instruments to minimize any damage to the surrounding tissue. In some cases, sutures may be placed to aid in healing.
After the Procedure
After the extraction, we will provide post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. This may include the following:
- Applying ice packs to reduce swelling
- Taking prescribed pain medication as needed
- Rinsing your mouth gently with warm salt water
- Eating soft foods and gradually reintroducing solid foods as tolerated
- Avoiding smoking and using straws, as these can disrupt the healing process
