Understanding Simple Tooth Extractions

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-brunette

When tooth decay, periodontitis, or injury render a tooth too badly damaged to save through restorative treatments like root canals, your dentist may extract it. Tooth extractions are also used to eliminate crowding issues or as part of an orthodontic treatment. The dental extraction process is simple. Your dentist will first numb the area with a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. You may feel some pressure as the dentist gently removes the tooth from your jaw. After the extraction, there may be minor bleeding. A blood clot will form to fill the area left vacant by the tooth.

9 Tips for Recovering After a Dental Extraction

The majority of patients recover from tooth extractions quickly and without complications. Here are nine useful tips to help make your recovery easier.

  1. Apply ice or a cold pack to reduce swelling.
  2. Rest as much as possible and avoid heavy exercise to reduce bleeding.
  3. Avoid doing anything that could inhibit normal healing.
  4. Be very gentle when brushing your teeth or rinsing your mouth.
  5. Avoid the extraction site when cleaning your teeth.
  6. Do not drink from a straw for the first 24 hours after your extraction.
  7. Follow a soft diet as recommended by your dentist.
  8. Do not smoke or use tobacco.
  9. Inform your dentist if you experience excessive pain, bleeding, or swelling.

If you need to have a tooth removed, don’t procrastinate—find an affordable dentist in Orlando. Waiting too long will cause more pain and increase your risk of serious infection. If you can’t afford to see a dentist, consider contacting a third-party finance company, or seek help from your local dental schools.
