Removing a tooth is done only after every alternative option has been explored and a thorough examination conducted including detailed radiographs.
If you need to have a tooth extracted, it is important that it be replaced with a prosthetic tooth as soon as possible to prevent your adjacent teeth and opposing teeth from moving out of alignment. We will discuss what treatment option is best for your overall oral health.
Following removal of your tooth or teeth, we will give you post-operative care instructions. You may experience swelling and soreness, which may last a few hours or a few days depending on your procedure. This is to be expected, as an extraction should be viewed as a minor surgical procedure.
Ensure you eat a full meal before your extraction as you will not feel like eating much afterwards.
