Tooth Extractions at Auburn Dental Center

Ensuring a smooth and comfortable extraction process.

Why might I need a tooth extraction?

Tooth extractions are sometimes necessary due to:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection
  • Overcrowding
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Fractured teeth beyond repair
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment

What is the process for a tooth extraction?

The extraction process involves:

  • Administering a local anesthetic to numb the area.
  • Using specialized tools to loosen and remove the tooth.
  • Applying gauze to control bleeding and aid clotting.
  • Providing aftercare instructions for a smooth recovery. For more complex cases, we offer sedation dentistry to ensure comfort.

How should I care for my mouth after an extraction?

Post-extraction care includes:

  • Avoiding vigorous rinsing or spitting.
  • Refraining from smoking or using straws.
  • Consuming soft foods and avoiding the extraction site.
  • Following prescribed pain management and medication.
  • Keeping the area clean and avoiding brushing near the site for the first 24 hours. For more detailed post-operative care, visit our patient information section.

Are there alternatives to tooth extraction?

In some cases, treatments like root canals, crowns, or fillings can save a tooth. However, when the damage or decay is too extensive, extraction becomes necessary.
