How does a tooth extraction heal?

After a tooth extraction, we provide thorough aftercare instructions to promote healing and protect the extraction site. Within 24 hours of tooth extraction, a blood clot will form in your socket to stop the bleeding. It is important not to disturb the blood clot as this may cause a dry socket, which can delay healing and potentially lead to complications. If you think you may have an infection or your tooth extraction site is not healing, contact our tooth extraction dentist right away.

When is a tooth extraction necessary?

Tooth extraction is an approach we consider only after exploring all other options to save your tooth. However, when a removal is necessary, whether due to infection, damage, or preparing for dental procedures like implants, we ensure your experience is gentle and complete with precision. The best way to avoid getting a tooth extraction is to practice good oral hygiene habits and visit our dentists regularly for checkups.

Do wisdom teeth have to be removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come through the gums. By the time they arrive, there isn’t always enough room in the mouth for wisdom teeth to grow straight. Due to the lack of space, wisdom teeth can emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. Other times, wisdom teeth grow in without causing problems. Ultimately, whether or not you need wisdom tooth extraction can be determined with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists!
