A dental extraction may be recommended when a tooth is deeply decayed and restoration of the root and or crown is not possible. Extractions are also performed if necessary when being treated with orthodontics. Our pain management techniques and technology have made dental extractions possible with little to no discomfort.
After this procedure, be sure to rest and follow the doctor’s orders. You can use a cold compress to keep swelling down and reduce pain. Also, limit yourself to soft foods after surgery. Avoid drinking from a straw and smoking to prevent dry sockets. Our team will provide after care instructions, and a little comfort in the way of chicken soup in a cup, following your extraction.
