What to Expect When Having a Tooth Pulled

Tooth Extraction

Although finding out that a tooth has to come out is never good news, there are ways to make tooth extraction less uncomfortable. In cases where a tooth is decayed, damaged, or compromising other teeth in some way, tooth extraction may save you from greater pain and expense in the future. It’s actually one of the most routine procedures performed by dentists. And with a little preparation, it will seem more routine to you.

Talk to a dentist at Wadas Dental of Crown Point about what to expect during the procedure. Although tooth extractions are generally simple, understanding how the dentist will perform the extraction should help to ease any anxiety, since nothing’s worse than the fear of the unknown. Your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic, and then rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it before extracting it from the socket. You may feel a dull pressure, but you shouldn’t experience pain during the extraction.

Make sure you’re given clear guidelines about what you need to do after the procedure. The right at-home dental care and a little precaution will speed up the healing and lessen the risk of infection. You’ll have to avoid certain foods and activities until your mouth heals, which usually takes approximately one to two weeks.

Finally, ask about the cost of an extraction before the procedure and know how much of it will be covered by insurance. Charges are based on the difficulty of the tooth being removed. If cost is an issue for you, check with a family dentistry expert at Wadas Dental of Crown Point to find out about convenient, affordable payment plans.

A tooth extraction is generally a simple dental procedure that lasts just minutes. But if you have unusual fear or anxiety, you may decide to consider sedation dentistry at Wadas Dental of Crown Point. You’ll be prescribed medication prior to the extraction to help you relax.
