THE EXTRACTION PROCESS
At the time of extraction, the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.
During the extraction process, you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal. You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.
If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.
SECTIONING A TOOTH
Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.
AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION
Some mild bleeding will occur after extraction. This is usually stopped by gently holding gauze on the area until bleeding stops.
It is important that patients follow the dentist’s instructions carefully after an extraction. The dentist will inform patients about taking pain medications, cleaning the area, what foods to eat and avoid, and the type of activities one should avoid right after extraction
