Teeth Extractions in Richmond

While your dentist will always strive to maintain your natural teeth, there may be situations where an extraction is unavoidable. A tooth extraction may be necessary when the teeth are damaged or decayed beyond repair or cause overcrowding in the mouth.

What Is the Tooth Extraction Process?

During the extraction procedure, your dentist will provide a local anesthetic to numb the area for your comfort. They will then use a tool called an elevator to loosen the tooth and extract it using forceps.

Care After a Tooth Extraction

It is common to experience discomfort after the procedure, so pain medication can help. Your dentist may also recommend eating soft foods for the first few days to allow the area to heal. It is also best to avoid any strenuous physical activity that may interfere with the healing process.
