Dental Extractions

Remove damaged or problematic teeth safely with our expert dental extractions. Our skilled team ensures a comfortable experience and rapid recovery.

Dental extractions are sometimes necessary to preserve or enhance overall oral health. At Select Dental Office, we perform safe and gentle tooth extractions, using advanced techniques to minimize discomfort and promote quick healing.

When Are Dental Extractions Needed?

Tooth extraction may be required for several reasons, including:

  • Severe Decay: Teeth that are too decayed to save with fillings or crowns.
  • Impacted Teeth: Especially wisdom teeth that are not erupting properly.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: Removing teeth to resolve overcrowding and align the remaining teeth properly.
  • Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease that has loosened the teeth.
  • Dental Trauma: Teeth that are broken or damaged beyond repair.

What to Expect During a Dental Extraction

  1. Pre-Procedure Exam: Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination, possibly including X-rays, to determine the best method for extraction.
  2. Anesthesia: To ensure comfort, local anesthesia is administered to numb the extraction site. Sedation options may also be available for patients with dental anxiety.
  3. The Extraction: The dentist will gently remove the tooth, using precise techniques to minimize tissue disruption and facilitate a smoother recovery.
  4. Post-Extraction Care: You will receive detailed aftercare instructions to avoid complications such as infection or dry socket.

Benefits of Professional Dental Extractions at Select Dental Office

  • Pain Relief: Removing a problematic tooth can significantly alleviate pain and discomfort.
  • Prevents Further Issues: Extractions can prevent the spread of decay and infection to other teeth.
  • Promotes Healthier Alignment: Especially in orthodontic cases, extractions can lead to better alignment and oral health outcomes.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery typically involves just a few days of rest and limited activity. We recommend:

  • Eating soft foods and avoiding the extraction site when chewing.
  • Gently rinsing with salt water to aid healing and reduce swelling.
  • Avoiding smoking and straws, as the suction can disrupt the healing process.
