Tooth Extraction Q & A

What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is a surgical dental procedure in which your dentist removes baby or permanent teeth. They offer sedation dentistry and numbing agents to ensure you remain comfortable during the procedure. 

Your dentist only recommends tooth extraction when absolutely necessary to maximize your oral health and wellness.

Why might I need a tooth extraction?

You or a family member may need a tooth extraction if they experience one or more of the following:

  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Severe tooth damage or decay
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Tooth crowding 
  • Baby teeth that don’t fall out
  • Tooth or gum pain
  • Infected teeth

Dr. Aaronson & Associates experts offer tooth restorations, such as bridges, dental implants, and dentures, to replace extracted permanent teeth.

Is tooth extraction right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for tooth extraction at Dr. Aaronson & Associates, your dentist discusses your desired outcome, reviews your oral health history, and examines your gums and teeth. 

They may take dental X-rays to get the full picture of your oral health before developing a customized treatment plan. 

What happens during tooth extraction?

The first step of a tooth extraction at Dr. Aaronson & Associates is receiving local numbing medicine and sedation to help you feel relaxed or fall asleep. 

Your dentist might make tiny incisions before removing the affected teeth. They close any incisions or place gauze in your mouth to control any bleeding.

You rest in a recovery area until your dentist clears you to head home. Have a friend or family member drive you there if you’ve received sedation that causes post-surgery grogginess. 

What should I expect after undergoing tooth extractions?

Make sure to get plenty of rest after undergoing tooth extractions at Dr. Aaronson & Associates. Take medicines as directed by your dentist and follow a soft-food diet initially until your mouth begins to heal.

Avoid drinking through a straw, rinsing your mouth, or brushing your teeth vigorously, and don’t take part in any vigorous physical activity. Call the office if you have concerns, questions, or experience new or worsening discomfort.
