Tooth Extractions Q & A

What are tooth extractions?

Tooth extractions are minor surgical procedures in which your dentist removes damaged teeth. You may need extractions for a variety of reasons, but the experts at New Jersey Dental Specialists only extract teeth if absolutely necessary. They can replace extracted teeth with crowns, bridges, or dentures as needed to help you maintain a beautiful smile.

Why might I need tooth extractions?

Your New Jersey Dental Specialists provider may suggest that you undergo tooth extractions because of:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Painful or impacted wisdom teeth
  • Dental decay
  • Gum disease
  • Jawbone loss
  • Tooth trauma
  • Tooth infections

If your dentist can save a tooth from requiring extraction, they do so.

Are tooth extractions right for me?

The New Jersey Dental Specialists lets you know if you’re a candidate for tooth extractions after discussing your symptoms, oral health history, and your desired outcome with you. They examine your teeth and gums and review the results of your dental X-rays, before personalizing a dental plan that’s best for you.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Right before tooth extractions at New Jersey Dental Specialists, your provider numbs the treatment area and gives you a sedative to help you rest or fall asleep. Your dental surgeon makes tiny incisions to gently remove damaged or crowded teeth and closes the incisions. They could also place gauze in the empty spaces to slow any bleeding.

What happens after tooth extractions? 

After tooth extractions, you rest in a recovery area for a short time. A friend or family member must drive you home and stay with you. Get plenty of rest, take medications as directed by your dentist, and begin eating a soft-food diet.

Avoid strenuous exercise, drinking through a straw, brushing your teeth vigorously, or using mouthwash until your specialist permits you to do so. Call the New Jersey Dental Specialists office if you have new or worsening symptoms during the healing process and attend all follow-up visits.

After a period of healing, your dentist can replace missing permanent teeth with dental implants if you’re a candidate for them, along with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
