We Make Tooth Extractions as Easy as Possible
If you’ve never gotten a tooth extracted, you may be worried about how uncomfortable and painful it will be. Luckily, extractions are very low-risk procedures that are relatively painless. The recovery process can also be very simple if you follow your dentist’s instructions.
Enhance Dental can perform most extractions in our office, but we may refer you to an oral surgeon if our in-house dentist can’t help.
The Recovery Process
Once the procedure is complete, your dentist or oral surgeon will give you instructions on how to properly care for and clean the extraction site at home. They may initially cover the area with gauze and prescribe pain-relief medication to use for the first few days following the tooth removal.
The healing process can take just a few weeks as long as the site is kept clean. Once your gums are healed, you might be interested in replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant, bridge, or denture. Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry options.
