At Haake Family Dental, our award-winning team will work hard to save and restore your tooth. In some cases, however, a tooth extraction may be necessary to preserve your overall dental health. If you’re suffering from a severely injured or infected tooth, our dentist may recommend extraction. We also offer wisdom tooth extractions.
Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. These teeth are also the most likely to require extraction, due to any of several complications. However, other teeth may also require extraction if they cannot be saved by root canal treatment or other tooth-saving procedures. Some of the most common reasons to have teeth extracted include:
Our doctors may recommend extraction of one or more of your teeth if any of these issues apply to you. During your consultation, we may also recommend sedation dentistry to make your experience more comfortable.
After your extraction, you will need to be driven home by a friend or family member. You will require rest, but be sure to lie with your head propped on a pillow to prevent prolonged bleeding..
We will apply gauze when your extraction is complete. When it becomes soaked, change it for a fresh piece. Use pain medication and ice pack as directed for pain and swelling. If bleeding continues beyond 24 hours, contact our office immediately.
For the first few days following extraction, limit your diet to soft foods. Avoid smoking or using a straw, as the pressures created by these actions can slow clotting and loosen sutures. For more information or an extraction consultation, contact our office.
