Sometimes we need to or may choose to remove a tooth for many reasons. Tooth decay and risk of dental infection are some of the common reasons for tooth extraction. Unlike many stories you may have heard, it is generally a straight forward process done at the practice. Prior to the procedure, we investigate x-rays thoroughly and depending on the complexity of the procedure, sometimes a referral to an oral surgeon may be necessary. We will guide you on post operative care which helps in quick recovery from the treatment. Pain medications and ice packs can help reduce pain and avoid swelling after the process is complete.
