Facing a Dental Extraction
Facing a dental extraction can create a number of questions and might feel stressful to you. At Davis Dental Care, we are here to walk you through the process and help you regain your oral health. Our experienced and highly skilled team makes the process of dental extractions and tooth replacement as stress-free and easy as possible.
Dr. Smith will guide you through the process of removing a troubled tooth and make sure you fully understand all your tooth replacement options so you can make the best decision for your health and your smile. Unlike many dental offices, we are often able to perform dental extractions here in our Layton, Utah, dental office without the need for a referral.
Reasons for Dental Extractions
In many cases, the need for a dental extraction arises due to an untreated condition such as a cracked tooth, infection, deep decay, or abscess. In other circumstances, you may have a wisdom tooth that does not have enough room to properly erupt, or you may experience overcrowding.
Car accidents and trauma due to sports or recreation are other common reasons why we may need to remove a damaged tooth. Whatever the reason, Dr. Smith will make sure that you are comfortable, help you understand your treatment, and provide you with valuable advice throughout.
Your Dental Extraction Appointment
We make patient comfort a top priority. Dr. Smith and our team understand that most patients are worried if treatment will hurt. We will monitor you closely throughout treatment to make sure that you are completely numb. After your treatment is complete, we will explain how to take care of your extraction site, manage any residual pain, and discuss all your tooth replacement options, if necessary.
While we understand that no one wants to lose a tooth, we strive to make the process as painless as possible – something our patients truly appreciate.
Dental Extraction Aftercare
Once your surgery is complete, you should avoid things like drinking through a straw and smoking. It is also a good idea to avoid chewing near your extraction site at least for a few days. We will show you how to clean the area and what to do if you feel a little sore. Over-the-counter pain medications will usually do the trick.
