Here at Smile Brite Dental the last thing we want to do on a patient is a tooth extraction. We love to focus on patient’s preventive care and help avoid a tooth extraction but this is not always the case. Our dentist Dr. Naushil Desai and his team are committed to finding ways to keep your oral health in good shape.
If you need of a tooth extraction, there are several methods we practice in our office. First, we will numb the area of extraction so that you do not feel any discomfort in the process of extraction. There will be pressure when the tooth extraction takes place, but other than that it is a smooth sailing procedure. If your tooth is fully grown and broken through the gums Dr. Naushil Desai will extract the tooth with his state of the art tools. After the tooth is extracted, we will clean the area and apply gauze to prevent any bleeding while your mouth heals. In some cases, where the tooth is still below the surface of your gums, then oral surgery may be required to remove the tooth.
How to take care of your mouth post-extraction
At Smile Brite Dentistry, shortening recovery time after a tooth extraction is a priority to us. We do all extractions in the most effective way possible. Before sending any of our patients home, we make sure that the area of extraction is not bleeding, and any anesthesia used has worn off. We recommend that you do not drive after an extraction due to any anesthesia used. Be sure to stay hydrated and not to drink anything too hot or cold which may lead to sensitive areas in the mouth. We also recommend that you do not use a straw, which is a common way to have your affected areas start bleeding. If you have any questions about the tooth extraction procedure be sure to call our office today.
