Gentle and Precise Tooth Extractions

At Rosemont Dental Center, we always prioritize preserving your natural teeth. However, in certain situations, a tooth extraction becomes necessary for the sake of your overall oral health. Rest assured, our team ensures a comfortable and smooth procedure.

Why Might You Need a Tooth Extraction?

Several reasons might necessitate a tooth extraction:

  • Severe tooth decay that cannot be remedied with a filling or crown.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain or misalignment.
  • Overcrowding, often in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
  • Teeth damaged beyond repair from trauma or injury.

The Tooth Extraction Process

Your comfort is our priority. Before the extraction:

  • We'll take an X-ray to assess the tooth's position and condition.
  • Local anesthesia ensures the area is numb.
  • For a simple extraction, the tooth is loosened and removed. For surgical extractions, a small incision may be made.
  • Once the tooth is extracted, a gauze pad is placed to help clotting.

Aftercare and Recovery

Post-extraction care is crucial for smooth healing:

  • Bite gently on the gauze pad and change as needed.
  • Avoid rinsing or spitting forcefully for 24 hours.
  • Avoid smoking, drinking through straws, or consuming hot beverages.
  • Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling.
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by our team.
