Tooth Extraction in Parkland, FL

Tooth Extraction

At Promising Dental, we understand that tooth extractions can be a scary thought. That’s why our team of highly trained dentists are here to ensure your experience is comfortable and safe. We offer several types of tooth extraction services including simple and surgical extractions.

 

A simple extraction is the most common type of procedure done at Promising Dental. This involves removing a tooth that has already broken through the gum line or one that can easily be seen in the mouth. During this procedure, anesthetic will numbing the area around the tooth so you won’t feel any pain during the process. A metal instrument called an elevator is then used to loosen the tooth from its socket before it is removed with forceps.

 

Surgical extractions require more complex procedures. This type of extraction is usually done when a tooth has not yet broken through the gum line or it is impacted (stuck) in the jawbone and cannot be removed easily. During this procedure, an incision will be made into the gum to expose the underlying bone and ligaments so that a dentist can use special instruments to remove the tooth. Afterward, stitches may be necessary to close up any wounds caused by the extraction.

 

No matter which type of extraction you need, rest assured that our team at Promising Dental has your best interest in mind. We strive to make sure every patient feels comfortable and safe throughout their entire experience with us by providing a private and calming atmosphere.

It is important to note that after having a tooth extracted, you will need to take care of your mouth in order to ensure proper healing. This includes avoiding strenuous activities such as running or heavy lifting, eating soft foods like yogurt or applesauce, drinking plenty of fluids and using an ice pack on the area for 20 minutes at a time throughout the day. Additionally, it is essential to keep up with good oral hygiene habits by brushing twice daily and flossing once per day while being gentle around the extraction site.
