Tooth extractions are sometimes necessary to preserve oral health and prevent further complications. At The Healing Art of Dentistry, our skilled dentists, Dr. Franziska Dutton and Dr. Daniel Cohen, perform tooth extractions with precision and care to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients.

Here is what you need to know about tooth extractions:

  • Reasons for Extraction: Tooth extractions may be necessary for various reasons, including severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, crowding, impacted wisdom teeth or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
  • Procedure Overview: During a tooth extraction, we will numb the area with local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. The tooth is then carefully loosened and gently removed from its socket using specialized instruments.
  • Post-Extraction Care: After the extraction, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. It is essential to follow post-operative instructions provided by our team to promote healing and minimize the risk of complications.
  • Replacement Options: Depending on the location and function of the extracted tooth, our dentists may recommend replacement options such as dental implants, bridges or partial dentures to restore function and aesthetics.
  • Preventive Measures: In some cases, tooth extractions can be prevented with proper oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups and early intervention for dental issues.

We prioritize patient comfort and safety during tooth extraction procedures. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized care and attention to every patient, ensuring a positive experience from start to finish.
