What is a tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure is typically performed to address issues such as severe decay, infection, crowding, or damage beyond repair.

When is a tooth extraction necessary?
A tooth extraction may be necessary if a tooth cannot be saved with other dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, or root canal therapy. Common reasons for extractions include severe decay, advanced gum disease, or impacted wisdom teeth.

What is the tooth extraction process like?
Before the extraction, your dentist at Anderson & Breding Dental will numb the area with local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The tooth is then carefully loosened and removed from its socket. In some cases, stitches may be required to close the extraction site.

Is tooth extraction painful?
With modern anesthesia and gentle techniques, tooth extractions are generally not painful. You may feel some pressure during the procedure, but any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter or prescription pain medication afterward.

What is the recovery process after a tooth extraction?
Following a tooth extraction, it's important to follow your dentist's instructions for post-operative care. This may include avoiding certain foods, taking prescribed medications, and maintaining good oral hygiene. Most people recover fully within a few days to a week.
