Why would I need a dental extraction?

There are a variety of reasons why a dental extraction may be the best option for your smile. Common reasons teeth are extracted include:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Irreparable dental trauma
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Infection or abscess
  • Crowded teeth
  • Impacted teeth

Are dental extractions painful?

Before one or more teeth are extracted, a local anesthetic will be used to completely numb your teeth and gums so that you do not feel pain during your treatment. Our team will also provide you with aftercare instructions for managing pain and discomfort after the numbness wears off. Vero Dental provides two types of dental sedation as well, so if you are anxious about your procedure or you just want it to fly by, please ask us about adding dental sedation to your treatment plan. Our team is here to make your experiences in our office as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

Can I return to school or work after a dental extraction?

Even if you are only having one tooth removed, you will not want to make any plans after your extraction. It is best to return home and rest for at least the rest of the day, especially if dental sedation was used. Too much activity too soon can disrupt the healing process and cause a painful complication called a dry socket. Once you get home, we recommend sticking to soft foods that require little to no chewing and propping your head up on a few pillows to reduce any swelling that may occur. If you have any questions or concerns after your treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
