Saving teeth is our primary goal at Addisville Dental. In some cases, however, we understand that tooth extractions are necessary to maintain or restore your overall oral health.
At Addisville Dental, we will do everything we can to save your teeth with root canal treatment and other tooth-preserving procedures. Teeth extractions are still sometimes necessary for a variety of reasons including decay or damage that cannot be treated or severe injury. If you’re receiving braces, clear aligners or other orthodontic treatment, our dentist may recommend removing teeth to make it easier to reposition your teeth and straighten your smile.
Our dentist may also recommend tooth extraction when a tooth has become impacted. In this case, an existing tooth may be obstructing the eruption of another tooth. Tooth impactions are often painful and can cause infections as bacteria enter the gums and surrounding tissues around the partially erupted tooth.
If you need a tooth extraction, call our office. Our dentist will perform a thorough examination and take digital X-rays to assess the condition of the tooth and the surrounding bone. Before your extraction, we will numb the tooth using a local anesthetic to make you as comfortable as possible. Our dentist will then remove the tooth and pack the area with gauze. We may close the area with a stitch as necessary.
After your extraction, our dentist will ask you to bite down on a piece of dry, sterile gauze to limit the bleeding until a blood clot can form in the socket. Be sure to keep the area clean. Don’t smoke or vigorously rinse your mouth for the first 24 hours. Pain and swelling for the first few days are normal and should pass in two to three days. Our dentist may prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers as necessary to prevent infection and ease your discomfort in the days following your extraction. If you experience prolonged pain, bleeding or swelling following your procedure, be sure to call our office right away.
