Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dental extraction?
A dental extraction is a procedure in which we remove a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This may be necessary due to damage, infection, or other dental issues.
What are the reasons for a tooth extraction?
Although extraction is a last resort, we may need to perform one if you have:
- Severe tooth decay
- An impacted wisdom tooth
- Severe infection
- A broken tooth
Our dentist will assess your situation and determine whether a tooth extraction or other treatment (like a root canal) is the best option for you.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
Recovery time can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction and your individual healing process. In general, it may take a few days to recover fully. We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help manage pain and promote healing.
Can I eat normally after a tooth extraction?
You may need to modify your diet temporarily after a tooth extraction to avoid irritating the treated area or dislodging the blood clot that forms during healing. We’ll give you specific instructions on what to eat and drink during your recovery period.
