Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

When is tooth removal necessary?

It’s usually best to keep a tooth in place as long as possible. However, if a tooth is too diseased or damaged to save with a restorative procedure like a root canal or dental crown, we will suggest removal. Sometimes teeth need to be removed to make room for dentures or other restorations. We may also recommend extraction prior to orthodontic treatment.

What is a tooth removal like?

We begin a tooth extraction by numbing your mouth with a local anesthetic. You also have the luxury of choosing between two different forms of dental sedation to ease your anxiety and calm your nerves for a more relaxing procedure. Once the surgery is complete, we will place gauze in the extraction site that you will bite down on for a short time to stop the bleeding.

How long does it take a tooth removal to heal?

For most types of extractions, you can expect the site to heal within seven to 10 days. You actually play a role in how quickly you heal, however. We’ll give you complete aftercare instructions for you to follow. The closer you stick to these guidelines, the quicker and more comfortable your healing period will be.
