Tooth Extractions

In extreme cases where a tooth cannot be saved, an extraction will be performed. Please click on a link below for more information.


Infection

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


Routine 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.
