Extractions

If you’ve had a dental injury, sometimes it’s better to extract a broken tooth than try to save it. Periodontal disease can have the same effect if the infection spreads to your teeth. Advanced periodontitis typically causes tooth loss in its later stages, but we only want to perform extractions when necessary to restore your dental health!

What are Dental Extractions?

There are two kinds of extractions: simple and surgical. A surgical extraction is typically reserved for removing impacted wisdom teeth and severely broken teeth. Unless there’s a complication, you can usually have your teeth removed with a simple extraction.

With simple tooth extractions, your dentist only needs to use a local anesthetic to numb the surrounding area before removing the problem tooth. Having infected teeth extracted can stop the bacteria from spreading to other teeth and advancing the effects of periodontal disease.

Tips for After Extraction

After having your tooth extracted, there are a few tips we can give you for your recovery period:

  • Take any pain medication as prescribed
  • Change gauze pads often
  • Eat softer foods during recovery
  • Don’t smoke
  • Don’t use straws
  • Use ice packs to relieve any pain or swelling
