FAQs about Tooth Extractions

What is the Tooth Extraction procedure?

A tooth extraction is usually performed as a last resort when there is no salvaging a badly damaged tooth, or if leaving a tooth in the mouth would cause more harm than taking it out.

The doctor will numb your tooth, gums, and jawbone with anesthetic.

During the extraction process, you will feel a significant amount of pressure. This is common and is due to the shifting of the tooth in order to widen the socket for complete removal.

Tooth Extraction Brecksville

There are two types of tooth extractions: simple tooth extractions and surgical tooth extractions.

1. Simple tooth extraction

simple tooth extraction is performed when the tooth has erupted through the gums.

Your dentist will begin by injecting some local anesthetic into your gums.

If you are nervous or anxious about the procedure, your dentist may also have you breath laughing gas through a mask or you may be prescribed an oral sedative to take prior to your appointment.

You are usually free to drive home once the bleeding has slowed down. If you took an oral sedative, you will need to have a friend drive you home.

2. Surgical tooth extraction

A surgical tooth extraction is the procedure used when the tooth has not yet erupted.

Your oral surgeon may administer sedation sleep dentistry- an IV anesthetic so that you are unconscious- during the procedure if necessary or if you suffer from dental anxieties and fears. You will need to have someone drive you home as the anesthesia will wear off slowly over the next few hours.

Sometimes, your dentist may apply a stitch or two to hold the socket closed and accelerate clotting

When should I get a tooth extraction?

Necessary tooth extractions can help patients maintain a high level of oral health by:

  • Preventing the spread of tooth infection
  • Saving the alignment of current healthy teeth
  • Replacing damaged teeth with functional prosthetics

What is proper tooth extraction aftercare?

The healing process and recovery from a tooth extraction usually takes a few days.

You may experience the following symptoms subsequent to getting your tooth pulled:

  • A wet gauze pack is placed over the extraction site to prevent excessive bleeding and to promote a blood clot to start healing the socket.
    • We recommend keeping pressure on the gauze pack for 30-45 following your surgery, and if needed, replace the gauze.
    • Bleeding may occur up to 2 days.
    • Avoid activities that you need to apply suction to, such as smoking or sucking through a straw.
  • Swelling and bruising tend to happen on your jaw near the extraction site.
    • This is normal, and placing a cold, moist cloth or ice pack to the swelling site will help keep it at a minimum.
    • Ice for about 15-20 minutes every hour for the next 6 days.
  • Your oral hygiene routine does not need to change, so continue brushing and flossing.
    • Just be sure to be extra gentle and care near your extraction site.
  • It is best to avoid rinsing your mouth following the procedure.
    • The day after, rinse gently with a glass of warm water mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
    • Do this warm water salt rinse every 3-4 hours, and after meals.
    • This helps to gently cleanse the surgical site, and fight against infection of the socket.
  • As for food, a light diet paired with plenty of fluids is what you should follow for the first few days.
    • Avoid carbonated and hot beverages.
    • Chew away from the extraction site.

With aftercare of a surgery, a common question is what level of pain to expect...

What pain will I experience after a tooth extraction?

Pain, of course, is relative to each patient.

With a dental surgery like a tooth extraction, discomfort is to be expected.

For you to deal with any pain, discomfort, or soreness after your extraction, over-the-counter pain medications like Acetaminophen (Tylenol) should be enough to alleviate symptoms.

However, if you find yourself still in pain, your dentist could prescribe a stronger prescription pain medication to help your pain level.

Is a tooth extraction procedure covered by dental insurance?

Yes, most dental insurance plans typically cover the cost of tooth extraction.

However, if you are sedated for your extraction, there is a possibility you have to pay out-of-pocket for sedatives or IV anesthesia.

What do I do to replace my missing tooth after a Tooth Extraction?

After a tooth extraction, you are left with a gap in your smile. Luckily, we offer several options for replacing missing teeth.

For a single tooth replacement, the most common and popular choice is a dental implant.

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for your missing tooth, and it will resemble your natural tooth so much that no one will be able to notice that it is an artificial tooth.

For multiple missing teeth, dental implants are still an option.

A more economical alternative is removable partial dentures. If all your teeth have been extracted, there are full dentures.

They can be completely removable or permanently fused into your mouth with dental implants.
