Although adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and tooth extractions are always a last resort, there are some situations that might require it. Eagle Ridge Dental Clinic is pleased to offer effective, safe, and painless tooth extraction when recommended and required.
Whatever the reason for a tooth extraction, EagleRidge Dental is here for you! We can safely and effectively extract teeth that require it.
After a tooth extraction, it is important for a blood clot to form in order to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. Every case is different, and your Eagle Ridge Dental Clinic team will review with you exactly what to expect, and how best to deal with your tooth extraction. They will also send you home with instructions to better guide you on how to care for your mouth after the extraction. Generally, it is not uncommon to experience some mild discomfort immediately after the freezing wears off. Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are recommended at that time. Any swelling or bleeding is usually quite minimal, but your dentist can tell you what to expect in your specific case.
The removal of a single tooth, depending on where it is located in the mouth, can sometimes lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have an impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, your dentist will discuss possible alternatives to extractions, and replacement options if the extraction is necessary.
