When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

Although every smile is unique, our goal across the board is always to save your natural teeth whenever possible. If that’s no longer feasible, then we will need to gently extract a tooth. This is most often the case when the tooth has sustained severe damage, like a large cavity or severe crack. However, it could also be necessary if your tooth is impacted or has loosened from gum disease. After removing the tooth and restoring your oral health, we will fill the gap in your smile with one of our lifelike and durable tooth-replacement solutions, like a dental bridge or implant.

Tooth Extraction FAQs

Do I need a tooth extraction?

The most common reasons for tooth extractions is if your tooth has been damaged from a cavity or gum disease or if your wisdom teeth can't find a place in your mouth. Speak to Dr. Tyagi about your concerns during your consultation, and he can assess what might be the best course of action.

Will my extraction hurt?

Dr. Tyagi offers local anesthesia to numb the area before your extraction, so you shouldn't feel any pain. There might be a little bit of pressure or discomfort, but it shouldn't be anything to worry about. He will also walk you through your pain management options beforehand, including the medication you can take after the procedure.

What can I eat after my tooth extraction?

For the first few days after your extraction, your mouth will be feeling a bit tender. We recommend eating things that are soft and gentle - things like mashed potatoes, applesauce, or yogurt. Hold off on anything too hot, spicy, or crunchy, like chips or popcorn.

What happens if I lose a stitch?

The stitches we place are designed to dissolve on their own within a week or two. If you’ve lost a stitch, and you’re worried about it, feel free to give our office a call for advice or reassurance.
