Tooth Extractions

What Is a Tooth Extraction?
As a full-service dental practice in Groton, Connecticut (CT), the staff and dentists of Contemporary Dentistry specialize in tooth extractions.

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth that is non-restorative. Tooth extractions are preformed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are also routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.

Tooth Extraction Treatment & Care
If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. In most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.

Tips To Follow To Make Recovery Easier

  • Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing.
  • Don’t smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously.
  • Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
  • Follow the diet your dentist suggests.

For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. If you experience swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag and call your dentist right away. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don’t clean the teeth next to where the tooth was removed.
