Are you looking for Dental Extraction in Pelham or New Rochelle?
At our dental practice, we understand how important it is to maintain good oral health and that sometimes dental extractions, or the removal of teeth, are necessary. Our goal is to make the extraction process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
What is a Dental Extraction?
A dental extraction is a routine procedure used to remove a tooth from the mouth. This is usually done when a tooth is decayed, damaged, or overcrowded. Extractions may also be necessary for wisdom teeth that are impacted, causing pain or crowding in the mouth.
What Should I Expect During a Dental Extraction?
Prior to the extraction, your dentist will take a detailed medical history and discuss any concerns you may have. During the procedure, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once the area is numb, your dentist will use specialized tools to remove the tooth. After the extraction, you may experience some swelling or discomfort, and your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to manage any pain or swelling.
What is the Recovery Process After a Dental Extraction?
It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions carefully after a dental extraction. You may be asked to take medications to help ease any discomfort, and you should avoid strenuous activity for the first few days. You should also avoid drinking from a straw or smoking for at least a week after the extraction. Additionally, it is important to keep the area clean and free from bacteria to reduce the risk of infection.
