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?
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?
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.
