Tooth removal with care
Sometimes, tooth extraction is unavoidable, due to trauma or impact, disease, or tooth crowding. If this treatment is necessary, we will do everything to make it as simple and painless as possible. We’ll start by numbing the area surrounding your tooth with a local anesthetic, and after the extraction, we’ll help set you up for a successful recovery by providing an after-care routine. We may prescribe pain medication.
A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your body will form a blood clot to fill in the area left vacant by the extracted tooth. We suggest rinsing your mouth gently and applying an ice pack to help with any swelling. Depending on the location, we may also recommend you do not drink through a straw for 48 hours.
