West El Paso Dentist: Tooth Extractions

At West El Paso Dentist, we believe in helping our patients maintain the healthiest possible teeth and gums. Unfortunately, sometimes circumstances arise where a tooth must be extracted in order to prevent further damage. Tooth extractions can be a scary prospect for many patients, but our skilled team of dental professionals is here to guide you through the process with compassionate care.

What to expect at your tooth extraction appointment

Before your appointment, our team will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. You will likely be asked to avoid eating or drinking for a certain period of time before the appointment and to arrange for transportation to and from the office.

During the extraction, our team will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. If you are particularly anxious or nervous about the procedure, we may also offer sedation options to help you relax.

Once the area is numbed, our team will carefully loosen the tooth from the surrounding tissue and gently remove it. In some cases, we may need to make a small incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth.

Aftercare for a tooth extraction

Following the procedure, it is important to follow our team’s instructions carefully to ensure proper healing. You may experience some discomfort, swelling, or bleeding in the area around the extraction site, but these symptoms should subside within a few days.

To speed up the healing process, we will recommend that you avoid certain foods and activities for a while. You should also keep the area clean by gently brushing and flossing around the extraction site.

Are you a good candidate for a tooth extraction?

There are a variety of reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, including decay, infection, crowding, or damage. At your initial consultation, our team will assess the condition of your teeth and determine whether tooth extraction is the best option for you. In some cases, we may recommend other treatments such as a dental filling, root canal, or crown instead.
