- What is an extraction?
An extraction is the removal of a tooth. This can be a damaged or decaying tooth or a tooth that causes overcrowding.
It’s a safe dental procedure and painless with local anesthesia.
- Is tooth extraction painful?
No, tooth extraction is not painful. We use local anesthesia to numb any pain during the procedure. Post-treatment, medicine may be prescribed to ensure your comfort and happy healing.
- What happens after a tooth extraction?
After a tooth extraction, you’ll be given instructions on how to best care for your mouth at home.
Post-treatment, ice may be applied to the affected area. Recovery will take a few days, and medicine may be prescribed to ease any discomfort.
- How soon after extraction can I get an implant?
This depends on the patient and the situation. In some cases, a dental implant can be inserted the same day as the extraction. In other cases, we recommend waiting a few months for the area to heal.
