Tooth Extraction FAQs

When do I need to get a tooth extraction?

Your need for a tooth extraction can only be determined by a dental professional. Above, we listed some of the most common reasons for a tooth extraction. If you’re experiencing any of those issues, please speak with a member of our team to schedule an appointment.

What is the tooth extraction process like?

As with any oral surgery, it’s normal to feel a bit apprehensive about a tooth extraction. However, it’s a relatively simple procedure. First, a form of anesthesia will be provided to numb the area and put you at ease. Next, we will gently remove the tooth and place any necessary stitches into the gumline. At this point, a blood clot will form and the healing process will begin.

What aftercare instructions should I follow after a tooth extraction?

For the few days following your tooth extraction procedure, stick with soft foods like ice cream, yogurt, soup, or something similar. Avoid drinking through a straw or smoking as the suction can know your blood clot loose and cause dry socket. When brushing your surrounding teeth, avoid making contact with the oral surgery site until it feels comfortable for you.
