Tooth Extractions

While the idea of a tooth extraction may cause concern, it’s a common procedure that can improve your oral health in various situations.
A tooth extraction is a safe and common dental procedure that involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This may be necessary for various reasons, including:

Benefits of Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction offers a solution for various dental issues, often leading to significant improvements in your oral health and overall well-being. Here’s how:
1

Addressing Infection & Discomfort

Extracting a severely decayed, infected, or abscessed tooth eliminates the source of pain and infection, promoting better oral health and preventing further complications.
2

Preserving Healthy Teeth

By removing a problematic tooth, you safeguard surrounding healthy teeth from damage or infection caused by overcrowding or misalignment.
3

Promoting Healthy Bone Structure

In cases of advanced gum disease, where teeth become loose and unsupported by bone, extraction can prevent further bone loss and create a foundation for future dental solutions like implants.

Continuing Care and Maintenance
Tooth extraction care includes following post-op instructions, avoiding strenuous activities, maintaining oral hygiene, and attending follow-up appointments promptly.

Protect Blood Clot

  • Avoid rinsing, spitting, or using straws in the first 24 hours to prevent dislodging the blood clot.
  • Protecting the blood clot is crucial for proper healing and preventing dry socket.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activities

  • Refrain from vigorous physical activities or heavy lifting for a few days following the extraction to minimize bleeding.
  • Rest and avoid activities that could dislodge blood clots or impede healing.
  • Manage Discomfort

  • Take prescribed or over-the-counter pain medications as directed to manage any discomfort or swelling.
  • Apply an ice pack to the cheek outside the extraction area to reduce swelling and numb the area.
  • Soft Diet

  • Stick to a soft diet consisting of foods like yogurt, soup, mashed potatoes, and smoothies for the first few days.
  • Avoid hard, crunchy, or spicy foods that could irritate the extraction site or get stuck in the socket.
  • Avoid Smoking and Tobacco

  • Refrain from smoking or using tobacco products for at least 72 hours after the extraction to promote healing.
  • Smoking delays healing and increases the risk of complications such as infection and dry socket.
  • Follow Post-Op Instructions

  • Adhere to your dentist's post-operative instructions regarding pain management, diet, and activity restrictions.
  • Proper care promotes healing and prevents complications.

    I am very pleased with Town Center Family Dental in Hillsborough NJ. I have been a patient of the practice for over four years. The dental treatment and services are state of the art and performed with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. I have had some interim dental issues between my six-month scheduled cleanings. These issues have been addressed immediately. I have never had to wait to get an appointment or the matter not taken care of in a timely manner. The insurance/billing office is equally efficient looking into out-of-pocket cost and communicating that to the patient. Staff here are very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. They are a comprehensive dental practice.

    Very pleased with latest visit with Dr. Mark and my dental work. Was amazed at the job done and level of ability and compassion for the patient. The entire staff is pleasant courteous and eager to inform the patient of each step of any dental processes. Also amazed of the ability to manufacture dental caps on site. Each visit continues to be good. Cleanings are productive and I like being advised on how to do better. Been a few years now and am still pleased with the service and professional work. Again the staff is amazing.. courteous and efficient. Dr’s are fantastic. Today met Dr Chris and Lucy. Thank for explaining what needed to be done and being efficient and courteous. Great work.
