Ask the dentists at the Avenue Dental Centre in Windsor, Ontario about tooth extractions.
Why do I need a tooth extracted?
There are many reasons why we may recommend extracting a tooth. We may suggest tooth extraction because your tooth is poorly positioned in your mouth, badly decayed, abscessed, you have developed serious gum disease, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
Will having my tooth extracted be painful?
With current techniques, the tooth extraction process is not painful.
Our highly skilled team will begin by placing a local anaesthetic to the area surrounding your tooth, so that you will not feel pain while your tooth is being extracted.
If anything becomes uncomfortable for you during the procedure, our caring team will be listening and ready to help make you comfortable before continuing with the procedure.
What should I do after my tooth is removed?
During your appointment, our team will explain to you how to care for your mouth after the extraction. By following some simple steps, you can prevent any problems following extraction.
When will I be able to eat regular foods?
After your procedure, you should eat only soft foods for a couple of days. As you heal, you can add solid foods back into your diet.
