WHAT TO EXPECT WITH TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

The process of an extraction begins when local anesthetic is usually administered to numb the area of the extraction. In some cases, an anesthetic may be used that will allow you to sleep through the process, if it is going to be longer or a more extensive procedure, or if the patient would prefer it. Anything impacting the tooth such as tissue and bone may be removed first, once the anesthetic has begun to work. After this is accomplished, forceps are used to grasp the tooth and rock it back and forth until it comes loose. Sometimes, a tooth may resist and be harder to pull or be in a strange position and when this occurs, the tooth is removed in pieces.

If you’re awake during the process, you should only feel pressure, no pain. Each patient is different and may need more or less anesthetic. If you’re feeling pain, alert your dentist who will administer more anesthetic. Most dental professionals will ask you questions before they begin to ensure this doesn’t happen. It’s always good to communicate freely with your dentist so they can help you to the best of their ability.

This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.

What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
