When considering whether to extract a tooth, it’s especially important to consider all the options. Afterwards, should the tooth be replaced with bridgework, with an implant, or nothing at all? Can the tooth be saved? Is there a root canal required? Are there gum issues? How will this affect the bite? Dr. Siegelman and our staff will work together to develop a plan that is right for you.

Dental Extraction Procedure

Your dental extraction can be done with local anesthesia (numbing), with nitrous oxide (gas), oral medicines to relax you, or with intravenous anesthesia. Which choice is best for you depends on how anxious you are, how well numbness works for you, a sensitive gag reflex, and other factors. Most importantly, share your concerns with us, and we’ll make recommendations.

Most procedures for dentistry have gotten easier for patients over the years, including extractions. Our philosophy is to be gentle, fast, and as minimally intrusive as possible.

What To Expect with a Tooth Extraction

Not all dental extractions require antibiotics. In most cases, we’ll put a numbing dressing in the spot, that has antibiotic incorporated, rather than give you a prescription to take orally.

We generally give patients medicine for pain while they’re still in the office, in addition to a prescription for pain.

You’ll be given instructions for any bleeding, pain, or swelling, and an urgent number to call. Most patients experience some soreness for a few days, with some minimal puffiness.
