FAQs about Extractions
- What’s the procedure for a tooth extraction like?
Our skilled dentists work with you to ensure your comfort before beginning your extraction.
Step 1: We’ll take a digital x-ray of your tooth and plan the safest and most comfortable way to remove your tooth.
Step 2: If needed, a sedation method will be used to minimize any stress. Then, we’ll clean and sanitize the area and gently remove your tooth.
Step 3: Depending on the reason for your extraction, medicine (such as antibiotics) may be prescribed. Our team will give you aftercare instructions to assist with your healing and explain dental restoration options to replace your missing tooth.
- How long does it take for a tooth extraction to heal?
The initial healing period usually takes anywhere between one to two weeks on average.
Most patients resume regular activity within 24 hours. It’s recommended you take some time to relax so your treatment can clot and heal properly.
- When can I eat after a tooth extraction?
It’s advisable to wait until after your numbing agent wears off to eat so you don’t bite your tongue or cheeks by accident. Avoid hot, spicy, and crunchy foods, especially during the first couple of days.
We recommend sticking to soft foods that require minimal chewing to allow your extraction site an optimal healing environment.
