Why Get a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extractions to preserve your oral health and remove problematic teeth. We often perform them when there is no way to save a tooth. Some teeth are simply an issue to your oral health, so removing them before they cause problems with shifting infection and intra-oral damage is best. 

For example, you may need teeth removed because of advanced gum disease. In other cases, you’ll need an extraction because you have an impacted wisdom tooth.

Some of the reasons you may want or need an extraction include:

  • Loose or severely decayed teeth
  • Teeth that are cracked or broken below the gum line
  • Stubborn baby teeth
  • You’re looking to avoid having additional treatment done

With the help of an examination, we can determine if you might need an extraction. Most patients who need an extraction can and should have the procedure done. Leaving a problem tooth intact can cause issues down the road with infections and abscesses.

We will take x-rays to help in further identifying the need for an extraction.

What is the Process?

We first provide you with an anesthetic or sedation of your choosing. We can discuss our sedation options with you during your consultation. Once you’re comfortable, we will loosen and remove the tooth. We’ll have you bite down on gauze to stop the bleeding. We may place sutures if they are needed to close the gums.

If we have sedated you, we can escort you to a recovery room to fully wake up. You should arrange to have a friend or relative drive you home if you have been under general sedation.

Aftercare Instructions

After the procedure, it’s essential to ensure you’re taking steps to properly care for the extraction site so that you can heal as quickly and effectively as possible. There are several different aftercare instructions that you should follow, including taking pain medication as prescribed, avoiding certain types of food and drink, and keeping the extraction site clean and dry. 

It’s also important to follow up with our team if you experience any pain, swelling, or other issues after your tooth extraction, as we may need to provide further treatment or care to help you recover. With the proper care and attention, you can help ensure your tooth extraction procedure goes as smoothly as possible.

Who is a Candidate for Tooth Extractions?

At Bear River Dental, our team understands tooth extractions may be necessary for certain patients. While it is generally preferable to save the natural tooth whenever possible, there are situations in which removing a tooth is the best course of action for a patient’s oral health. 

Candidates for tooth extractions may include those with severe decay or damage that we cannot repair using less invasive methods and individuals with overcrowding or impacted teeth. Additionally, patients who require orthodontic treatment may need teeth extracted to make room for proper alignment. Whatever the reason for tooth extraction, our team is committed to providing comfortable and compassionate care for all our patients.
