Tooth Extractions Q&A

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction? 

Tooth extraction is the last remedy any dentist would suggest and is only done if nothing else can save your tooth. Decaying leads to a lot of discomfort and pain not just in the tooth but if not dealt with at the right time, the bacteria can even harm your gums. Thus in cases where the dentist feels this is the only option left, they would suggest the same.

How Long Is The Procedure?

If you’re having one tooth removed then ideally it should take about 20 – 40 minutes.

How Painful Is The Extraction? 

We wont lie, although you are under local anesthesia, you will feel a little discomfort while the dentist works on your tooth. The machines also cause a little vibration like feeling in your mouth. It is natural to be a little hesitant, but rest assured its nothing to be afraid of. Our dentists ensure you are at ease the whole time.

What Is the Recovery Period? 

In most cases your swelling will go down in 48 – 72 hours and you will be able to feel normal again. In the situation that your case was slightly more complicated, this may go up a few more days and the dentist is the best person to decide.
