Teeth extractions are necessary when the patient has sustained a serious tooth injury or has a severely decayed tooth. As dentists, we will consider all treatment options available to preserve the tooth, prior to recommending an extraction. At DeRose Dental, the dentists perform an extraction procedure for patients of records.
During the visit to our dental office, we will conduct an exam of the tooth that includes an xray. If the tooth is deemed nonrestorable we will prepare you for an extraction.
Local anesthesia, numbing, will be given to the gums and teeth to avoid discomfort in the mouth during the procedure. This takes away the sensation in the oral region, meaning you wouldn’t be able to feel your mouth for a brief period. The numbing typically wears off after a few hours. Once numb, the dentist will use a variety of instruments to remove the tooth from the mouth. After the extraction is completed, care instructions will be discussed and your dentist may suggest medication to facilitate optimum healing of the extraction site. You will be able to resume regular oral functions in a few days.
