Tooth Extractions
If you are scared of getting your teeth extracted, you are not alone. Most people fear tooth extractions and would rather tolerate the pain than go through the treatment. Our dentists at Smile Designs Dentistry prefer preventive and restorative approaches to preserve your natural teeth, but in certain cases, dental extraction may be the only solution. Worry not because our trained dental professionals provide painless and comfortable tooth extractions in Manteca, CA.

The standard tooth extraction process usually takes 15 to 20 minutes, so you will be free to go home after a short visit. After the procedure, we will also discuss tooth replacement options to retain your oral health and smile. Contact our practice for an appointment today.

When Is Tooth Extraction Needed?

Our Manteca, CA, dentists perform tooth extractions when there is no other way to salvage a tooth. They are beneficial to your oral health in certain issues and help prevent the spread of damage. One of the most common reasons for extraction is tooth decay. Normally, we can restore a damaged or decayed tooth with dental fillings or a crown, but if the damage has extended beyond repair, it is better to get that tooth extracted.

Extraction is also helpful to remove stubborn baby teeth and make way for the proper eruption of permanent teeth. Oral injury/trauma, dental infections, and tooth mobility are other common indications for tooth removal. Our dentists also plan extractions as a part of certain orthodontic treatments to make more room for the proper alignment of teeth.

How Long Does It Take To Heal After A Tooth Extraction?

Typically, the recovery period after a simple tooth extraction lasts for 10 to 14 days. Our Manteca, CA, team will provide proper guidelines to maintain your oral health after tooth extractions. Recovery after a surgical extraction is longer because it involves gum incision and bone removal.

We suggest starting with a soft and cool diet after tooth removal. Once the wound begins to heal, you can gradually shift to a normal diet. Brush your teeth gently and rinse your mouth with warm saline water to keep the wound clean. After complete healing, you can visit our practice for the best tooth replacement treatments.
