Teeth Extractions

In cases of severe infection, where restorative approaches will not save a tooth, an extraction may be necessary.

Teeth Extractions

Modern dentistry makes routine tooth extractions relatively comfortable, painless procedures.

For seven days after the extraction, your tooth socket will require some care. You will be instructed to steer clear of the empty tooth socket when brushing your teeth.

Some bleeding can be expected, and pain medication may be prescribed for residual discomfort.

Why Might You Need a Tooth Extraction?

Several factors may necessitate a tooth extraction, including:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Broken or fractured teeth beyond repair
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Poor tooth positioning affecting bite or causing overcrowding
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment

 

Alternatives to Tooth Extraction:

We prioritize saving your natural teeth whenever possible. Our dentists will discuss alternative options to extraction, such as fillings, crowns, or root canal therapy.

 

The Tooth Extraction Process at Horizon Dental Care:

  • Consultation: Our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and discuss the reasons for extraction, answer your questions, and explain the procedure.
  • Local Anesthetic: A local anesthetic numbs the area around the tooth being extracted, ensuring minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • Tooth Removal: The dentist carefully removes the tooth using specialized instruments. You may feel pressure during this process. If you experience any pain, please communicate immediately.
  • Sectioning (if necessary): For deeply rooted or impacted teeth, the dentist may section the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.

 

After Tooth Extraction:

  • Bleeding Control: We will provide instructions on biting on gauze to form a blood clot, essential for healing.
  • Pain Management: We will prescribe pain medication to manage post-extraction discomfort.
  • Swelling Reduction: Applying an ice pack to the extraction site helps minimize swelling.
  • Healing and Recovery: We’ll provide detailed instructions on proper post-extraction care to promote optimal healing.
  • Follow-up Appointment: A follow-up appointment is scheduled to ensure proper healing and discuss potential tooth replacement options, such as implants or bridges.
