Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

At Brookhaven Village Dentistry, preserving and protecting your teeth are our highest priorities. Our dental team will do everything in its power to keep your teeth healthy and intact. Unfortunately, certain situations make tooth extraction the best possible option for your smile. It's important that you understand the benefits of tooth extraction. Well before your extraction appointment, our team will break down some of the benefits, which can include:

  • Providing Pain Relief: When your tooth has been significantly decayed or damaged, it can cause you pain and discomfort. Severe tooth pain can prevent you from focusing on tasks at hand and reduce your overall quality of life. Removing your tooth can provide pain relief, eliminating the pain signals sent to your brain.
  • Avoiding Future Problems: In certain situations, our dentist may recommend our Brookhaven tooth extraction services as a precautionary measure to avoid future dental problems. Typically, this is the reason that wisdom teeth are removed, as fully erupted wisdom teeth can overcrowd your smile and lead to pain. When our team removes your teeth, we do so for the betterment of your smile.
  • Eliminating Infection: When harmful bacteria have infected your tooth, it poses a serious risk of spreading to nearby teeth and entering your bloodstream. Although we typically treat tooth infections with procedures like root canal therapy and antibiotics, we may recommend tooth removal if the infection is too severe. By removing your tooth, we can help stop the spread of infection through your smile.

Our Efficient Tooth Extraction Process

Over the years, we've improved our regular and wisdom tooth removal services to be as efficient as possible. Our dentist will begin by conducting an extensive oral exam, where they'll look at your teeth, gums, and jawbones. From there, our team will create your personalized tooth extraction plan which outlines our recommended services. We're more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your plan.

Depending on the complexity of your extraction, we may start by administering nitrous oxide sedation. This form of sedation keeps you awake and aware yet significantly reduces feelings of pain and discomfort. From there, our dentist will use a special tool to extract your tooth from your gums as gently as possible. Finally, we'll suture the extraction spot and recommend medication to help with any pain while the site heals.

Extractions FAQs

At Brookhaven Village Dentistry, we never want you to feel like you don't have information available to make confident oral health decisions. That's why our friendly and informative dental team is here to answer your questions. Some of the most frequently asked questions about our Brookhaven tooth extraction services include:

Is tooth extraction uncomfortable?

Although tooth extraction is commonly thought to be painful, with nitrous oxide sedation, you can expect to feel minimal discomfort.

We highly recommend that you restrict your physical activity, especially exercise, immediately following your procedure. Increased blood flow to the area can cause painful throbbing and bleeding. It's also important to note that hard or tough foods can aggravate your extraction site. However, as your gums heal, you can go back to living your life as you normally would.

Once the extraction has been completed, you'll be provided with step-by-step instructions to care for the area at home. Although each patient's recovery time varies, a typical recovery period is 7 to 10 days.
