Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know!
What is a tooth extraction?
A dental tooth extraction is a dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure may be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, infection, crowding, or damage that cannot be repaired.
When is a dental tooth extraction necessary?
Tooth extractions may be necessary for several reasons, including severe tooth decay that has compromised the tooth's structure, advanced gum disease that has loosened the tooth, impacted wisdom teeth that are causing pain or dental issues, crowding of teeth that requires removal to create space for orthodontic treatment, tooth fractures or damage that cannot be repaired, or preparation for orthodontic treatments
What can I expect during a tooth extraction procedure?
Your dentist will numb the area around the tooth to ensure you feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. Depending on the complexity of the extraction, the tooth may be removed in one piece or divided into smaller pieces for easier removal. After the tooth is extracted, your dentist will provide instructions for post-operative care to promote healing and prevent complications.
Will I experience pain during a tooth extraction?
Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth, so you should not feel pain during the extraction procedure. However, you may experience some pressure or discomfort as the tooth is being removed. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness or discomfort, which can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication as recommended by your dentist.
How long does it take to recover from a dental tooth extraction?
The recovery time after a tooth extraction can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction and your individual healing process. In general, most people can expect to recover within a few days to a week. During this time, it's essential to follow your dentist's post-operative instructions, including avoiding certain foods, practicing good oral hygiene, and attending any follow-up appointments as scheduled.
Will I need a replacement for the extracted tooth?
Depending on the location of the extracted tooth and your dental health needs, your dentist may recommend a replacement option such as a dental implant, bridge, or partial denture. It's essential to discuss tooth replacement options with your dentist to maintain proper dental function and aesthetics.
