Tooth Extractions

What Are Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure may be necessary for various reasons, including severe decay, infection, or for orthodontic purposes.

How Does Davenport Dental Perform Tooth Extractions?

Our experienced dentists perform tooth extractions with precision and care. We use local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. For more complex cases, such as impacted wisdom teeth, we may use additional sedation techniques.

When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Some common reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection that cannot be treated with a filling or crown.
  • Advanced periodontal disease leading to loose teeth.
  • Preparing for orthodontic treatment when teeth are overcrowded.
  • Removal of wisdom teeth that are impacted, decayed, or causing pain.

Caring for Your Mouth After a Tooth Extraction

Post-extraction care is crucial for healing. Our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, which may include:

  • Resting and avoiding strenuous activity for a few days.
  • Eating soft foods and avoiding the extraction site while eating.
  • Keeping the area clean to prevent infection.
  • Taking prescribed pain medication as needed.
