Tooth Extractions

There are some occasions when we may make the recommendation to remove a permanent tooth. If a tooth is badly damaged or decayed, or there is a significant amount of trauma that would make repair impossible, we will recommend extracting the tooth.

Before removing the tooth, our dentists will inject a local anesthetic to numb the area, and if necessary, we may use a general anesthetic. We want the procedure to be as painless as possible.

Once the tooth has been pulled, gauze will be placed in the empty socket to stop any bleeding, and if necessary, we will use stitches to close the gum over the extraction point. Your dentist will recommend pain medicine to assist with any discomfort following the procedure. You will need to continue to change out gauze pads for the first three to four hours to ensure bleeding stops. Use an ice pack to limit swelling. Twenty-four hours after the extraction, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater. Eat soft foods and avoid using a straw for the first 24 hours after the extraction.

If you experience bleeding that continues past several hours after your procedure, or if you experience severe pain or swelling, contact your dentist right away.
