Dental Extraction Coming Up? Here is What to Expect

While the thought of a tooth extraction can drive anyone anxious, most of these feelings are stirred up due to the uncertainty behind this procedure. Whether you’ve been having a problem that has plagued you with pain, or you’re already thinking about tooth replacement options, we’re here to help you every step of the way!

Your Needs Come First

When faced with the possibility of a tooth extraction, our entire team at our Phoenix, AZ office is ready to welcome you in with open arms, a sensitive demeanor, and customized care. We realize that this kind of a procedure can cause distress, so we do everything we can to ensure that your needs are met and even go beyond your expectation.

The process begins with us ensuring that you’re comfortable. Your mouth will then be numbed using a local anesthetic to eliminate any possible pain. These injections are done precisely, and after they’re done you don’t have to worry about a single thing. After the mouth has been numbed, one of our dental professionals will move in and skillfully remove the unwanted tooth.

Post-Procedure Instructions

The initial 24 hours after your procedure are crucial in the healing process of your mouth. As a clot is forming at the site of the extraction, it is imperative that you don’t dislodge or disrupt this as it can have serious implication for the healing process. Be sure to gently rinse your mouth and don’t use a straw or smoke during this time period. If you do begin to feel discomfort in your mouth, feel free to use a cold compress on and off your face every twenty minutes.
