Taking a tooth out is a delicate procedure, and you can count on our practice here at Blash Dentistry to perform it with gentle care and the expertise to minimize any chances of complications.
Naturally, the ideal circumstance is for you to maintain your natural teeth for life. It is unfortunate that sometimes it isn’t possible. Our 92882 extractions are done under local anesthesia. The area being worked on is numbed in advanced. The result is that you will not experience any pain while the tooth is being removed. You will only sense the exertion of pressure used to loosen the tooth, but you can expect maximum comfort. Once our 92882 extractions are completed, you will be offered gauze to stem any minor bleeding that may occur. Don’t worry. That’s perfectly natural after surgery, even when stitches are placed. When you go home, you should follow the guidelines that you receive from our office. Among them are not exert yourself for the rest of the day, and to maintain a diet of soft foods for the first 24 hours. Choose options like pudding, gelatin, and broth; things you won’t have to chew. When the anesthesia wears off, you may notice some discomfort or swelling. There’s no need to be alarmed. Take over-the-counter pain relief medication and hold an ice pack over the outside of your mouth as needed. Rinse frequently with warm salt water, as well. You may want to consider replacing the tooth with a dental implant. It may be possible to get one started by placing the post immediately after your tooth is removed, providing you qualify. Bridges and dentures may also be options.
We understand the sense of urgency when you need our 92882 extractions. So please call us immediately and we will have you seen by our dentist at the earliest opportunity.
