I came here because my prior dentist was not getting persistent stains off my teeth. Julianna and Karen were incredible! So friendly and thorough. My teeth are spotless and white —this is what leaving the dentist should feel like! So happy I switched to this practice.

When is Dental Extraction Necessary?

Dental extraction is a common dental procedure that involves removing a tooth from the mouth. While your dentist will always try to save your natural teeth whenever possible, there are some situations where extraction may be necessary. Here are some common reasons for dental extraction:

  1. Severe tooth decay: When tooth decay is extensive and has reached the pulp, it can cause severe pain and infection. In some cases, the tooth may be beyond repair, and extraction may be the best option.
  2. Gum disease: Gum disease can cause damage to the surrounding tissues and bones that support the teeth. In advanced stages, it can cause teeth to become loose and eventually fall out. In some cases, extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage.
  3. Crowding or impacted teeth: Sometimes, teeth may be crowded or not have enough space to grow. This can cause pain, infection, and even damage to surrounding teeth. In these cases, extraction may be necessary to make room for other teeth or to prevent further complications.
  4. Trauma or injury: If a tooth has been severely damaged or broken due to injury or trauma, extraction may be necessary to prevent further complications.
  5. Pre-orthodontic work: In some cases, teeth may need to be removed before orthodontic work can begin. This can be done to create space or to correct crowding issues.

What to Expect During Dental Extraction

The dental extraction procedure is typically done under local anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort. After numbing the area, your dentist will use specialized tools to gently remove the tooth from the socket. You may experience some pressure during the procedure, but you shouldn’t feel any pain.

Recovery After Dental Extraction

After the extraction, you may experience some swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to care for the area and manage any discomfort. It’s important to avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and using straws for the first few days after the procedure. You should also avoid hard or chewy foods and stick to a soft, bland diet.

When to Call Your Dentist

While dental extraction is a routine procedure, complications can sometimes arise. You should contact your dentist if you experience severe pain, bleeding, or swelling that does not go away after a few days. It’s also important to follow your dentist’s instructions for aftercare to ensure proper healing.
