Deluxe Dental offers professional dental extraction services, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience for those needing tooth removal. Our skilled team is committed to providing the highest standard of care, using advanced techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

What are Dental Extractions?

Dental extractions involve the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. While we strive to save every tooth, sometimes an extraction is necessary for the sake of your overall oral health.

Reasons for Dental Extractions:

  • Severe Decay: Removal may be the best option if a tooth is too decayed to be saved.
  • Impacted Teeth: Common with wisdom teeth, causing pain and crowding.
  • Orthodontic Preparation: Sometimes necessary to create space for teeth to move into their correct positions.
  • Risk of Infection: In cases of compromised immune systems, even the risk of infection may warrant extraction.

Why Choose Dental Extractions at Deluxe Dental?

Opting for dental extractions at Deluxe Dental offers several benefits:

  • Relief from Pain and Discomfort: Extractions can provide immediate relief from pain caused by decay or impaction.
  • Prevention of Further Issues: Removing a problematic tooth can prevent further oral health issues.
  • Experienced Professionals: Our team has extensive experience in performing dental extractions with minimal discomfort.
  • Comprehensive Care: We provide thorough post-extraction guidelines and follow-up care.

Aftercare: Ensuring a Smooth Recovery

Proper aftercare is crucial for a smooth and quick recovery after a dental extraction:

  • Rest: Limit activity for the first 24 hours to encourage clotting.
  • Pain Management: Use pain relief as advised by our dentists.
  • Soft Foods: Eat soft foods and gradually reintroduce solid foods as healing progresses.
  • Oral Hygiene: Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water 24 hours after the extraction to aid healing.
  • Avoid Certain Actions: Refrain from smoking and using straws, as these actions can dislodge the blood clot in the socket.
