What You Need to Know About Having a Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

If you have a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged, then your dental care expert will most likely recommend that you have an extraction, which can be performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon. Because the price of a tooth extraction can vary, you may need to search for an affordable dentist in Orlando.

The dentist will administer an anesthetic prior to the extraction, so you will not feel pain during the procedure. In most cases, a local anesthetic is used. However, a general anesthetic may be used if you are getting multiple teeth removed at the same time. If general anesthesia is used, then you will be asleep during the procedure.

You will most likely recover within a few days of your tooth extraction. Your dentist in Orlando will give you painkillers, and you will have to take them as prescribed. You will need to rinse your mouth with warm salt water, change your gauze pads as needed, and follow the dental care regimen your dentist recommends.

Physical activity may increase your risk of bleeding, so you need to take it easy after your tooth extraction. If you smoke, then you will need to stop until you have recovered from the procedure. You should eat soft foods such as soup, eggs, yogurt, and Jell-O while you are recovering from your tooth extraction.

Even though tooth extractions are very safe, they are not risk-free. There is the possibility that the bacteria from your mouth could enter your bloodstream and cause infections in other parts of your body. That is why your dentist may recommend that you take antibiotics before and after your tooth extraction.
