Tooth Extractions in a Comfortable, Relaxing Office
Severe tooth pain, tooth decay, gum infections – all can lead to needing a tooth extraction. While getting a tooth pulled can sound scary, it is really a quick and relatively painless procedure. Because it is quick, you may not even have a lot of soreness during the recovery period.
Dental Studio can perform some extractions in our office, but we may refer you to an oral surgeon in some situations.
The Recovery Process
If you remember losing a tooth as a child, you may remember the recovery process. While it isn’t rocket science, there are some things you can do to speed up the healing. Your dentist will send you home with care instructions to do in the days after the procedure.
While most people recover well with Tylenol or ibuprofen and a good rinse routine, sometimes the dentist or oral surgeon might prescribe medicine to give some relief in the days following the procedure. The gums should fully heal in a matter of weeks, as long as the site is kept clean. Once healed, you might be interested in replacing the missing tooth with an implant, bridge, and denture.
