Extractions

Sometimes teeth need to be removed for a variety of reasons. From removal to replacement, we’re with you each step of the way.

Relax…You’re in Good Hands

Sometimes, the removal of a tooth is in a patient’s best interest. An infection, traumatic event, or disease may result in irreparable damage. Sometimes, a tooth needs removed in order to make way for other developing teeth.

In any event, an extraction may seem daunting. Our team discusses all options with you, and together, we decide on the best course of action. If an extraction is the best (or only) choice, we numb the area and help you feel relaxed during the procedure.

Extraction FAQs

It’s not uncommon to have questions about a treatment. Here are the top questions asked by patients at Third Street Dental.

How Long Does Do Extractions Take?

Most extractions are performed in about an hour.

Do Extractions Hurt?

We always numb your mouth before performing an extraction. While you won’t feel any sharp pain, you may notice the sensation of pressure.

Can I Return to Work or School After an Extraction?

That depends on the type of extraction performed and we will be sure to address any restrictions for aftercare. It’s best to take it easy on the day of the extraction. The increase in blood flow caused by activity could dislodge the blood clot that forms in the extraction site.

What Can I Eat After an Extraction?

For the first day or two, we recommend soft foods like yogurt, applesauce, and ice cream. You can then slowly begin to introduce solid foods into your diet over the next few days.
