Tooth Extractions

Our Tooth Extraction Process

We understand that tooth extraction can be a daunting prospect, which is why our skilled and compassionate team is dedicated to making the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Our tooth extraction process begins with a thorough examination and consultation, where we discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have.

Before the procedure, we ensure your comfort with the appropriate anesthesia or sedation options. Our experienced dentists use precise and gentle techniques to extract the tooth, whether it’s a problematic wisdom tooth or a general tooth extraction. We prioritize your well-being, taking all necessary precautions to minimize discomfort and promote a smooth recovery.

Benefits of Wisdom and Tooth Extractions

While preserving your natural teeth is our primary goal, there are several benefits to wisdom and tooth extractions when necessary:

  • Pain Relief: Removing a painful or infected tooth can provide immediate relief from discomfort and prevent further complications.
  • Preventing Infections: Extraction can prevent the spread of infection to adjacent teeth and gums, safeguarding your oral health.
  • Eliminating Crowding: Wisdom tooth extraction can prevent overcrowding and misalignment, preserving the alignment of your existing teeth.
  • Preparing for Orthodontics: Extraction may be recommended to create space for orthodontic treatments, such as braces or Invisalign®.
  • Enhancing Overall Health: Removing problematic teeth can contribute to better overall health by preventing systemic infections and reducing the risk of oral health issues.

At Park City Dental Associates, we strive to provide a comfortable and efficient tooth extraction experience. Our team is here to support you throughout the process, ensuring that you leave our office with confidence in your oral health and a clear understanding of post-extraction care.

Care After a Tooth Extraction

  • Avoid Disturbing the Extraction Site: Refrain from touching the extraction site with your tongue or fingers to prevent irritation or infection.
  • Proper Oral Hygiene: Continue to brush your teeth but be gentle around the extraction site. Avoid vigorous rinsing for the first 24 hours. Afterward, you can gently rinse with a saltwater solution to promote healing.
  • Soft Diet: Stick to a soft diet for the first few days, including items like soups, yogurt, applesauce, and mashed potatoes. Avoid crunchy, hard, or spicy foods that could irritate the extraction site.
  • Rest: Adequate rest is essential for a swift recovery. Avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours after the extraction.
