An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed to ensure your absolute comfort.
Caring for your mouth after an extraction is very important. We will outline how you should care for the area of the extraction verbally and with a detailed set of instructions to take home. It is important to allow your mouth time to heal, so avoid activities like smoking, drinking through a straw, or eating foods that may aggravate the area.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, contact us today so we can determine if you need an extraction. Delaying a consultation can worsen the situation and require longer recovery times.
