Frequently asked questions

What do you need to know about tooth extraction?

Your smile is unique – which is why we’ll take the time to build the best care path for you.

Tooth extractions are needed when a tooth cannot be restored, their position is negatively impacting other teeth, or you’re getting ready for orthodontic treatment.

Before we begin extraction we’ll discuss restorative options like bridges and implants to replace your tooth.

They can actually help relieve pain by removing troubled teeth. The actual procedure can be uncomfortable and result in swelling or pain, but most patients return to their full normal life after about 48 hours.

We first numb your tooth, jawbone, and gums so you are comfortable during the procedure. You’ll feel pressure without pain as we remove the tooth. Afterwards you’ll have to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes until the bleeding stops and the healing begins.

It will only take one appointment to remove the tooth.

You will experience some pain and swelling after the tooth is extracted. Ice and pain medication as directed can help.

For the first two days while the wound is healing we highly recommend eating soft foods, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding alcohol. Following this will help your mouth to heal quicker and with reduced risk of infection.

Take a step towards a lifetime of great oral health.
