Tooth Extractions Are Safe!
Your experience with tooth extractions may only go as far as getting your wisdom teeth removed. But, if you have never gotten a tooth extracted it’s important to know that it is a low-risk procedure that is relatively painless. The recovery process after a tooth extraction is oftentimes very simple.
College Ave Modern Dental can perform some extractions in our office, but we may refer you to an oral surgeon in some situations.
The Recovery Process
Once the procedure is completed, your dentist will send you home with instructions to teach you how to properly care for the extraction site in the hours and days following tooth removal. Some patients will have to cover the area with gauze.
If needed, the dentist or oral surgeon might prescribe medicine to give some relief in the days following the procedure. The gums should fully heal in a matter of weeks, as long as the site is kept clean. Once healed, you might be interested in replacing the missing tooth with an implant, bridge, and denture.
