Having a Tooth Pulled Doesn’t Have to be “Like Pulling Teeth”

Tooth Extraction

Despite its association with difficulty, having a tooth pulled is a routine dental procedure. In cases where a tooth is decayed, damaged, or overcrowding other healthy teeth, extracting it may be the best way to prevent more serious problems. By undergoing an extraction, you’ll save yourself additional pain, money, and time at the dentist. If you’re uncomfortable about the procedure, arm yourself with information. Take these simple steps to ensure you know everything you need to know before your tooth is pulled.

1.  Talk to your dentist about what to expect during the procedure. Although tooth extractions are usually fairly simple, understanding how the extraction is performed should help calm your jitters. There’s nothing worse than fear of the unknown. In general, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area. The tooth will then be rocked back and forth to loosen it before removing it from the socket. Although you may notice a dull pressure, you shouldn’t experience any pain during the procedure.

2. Make sure you receive clear guidelines on what to do after the extraction. The right care and a little precaution will speed the healing process and lessen the risk of infection. You’ll need to avoid certain foods and activities until your mouth returns to normal. This usually takes about one to two weeks.

3. Learn about the cost of an extraction beforehand and know how much of it your insurance will cover. Charges differ depending on the difficulty of the tooth being removed. If cost is an issue for you, check with a family dentistry expert at Advanced Dental Care of Brandon to learn about convenient payment plans.

A tooth extraction is generally a simple dental procedure that lasts only minutes. But if you have greater-than-normal fear or anxiety, you may want to consider sedation dentistry. You’ll be prescribed medication prior to the procedure to help you relax.
