We always do our absolute best to save teeth when possible but some teeth cannot be saved. If decay or an infection is too extensive to treat and it is affecting the patient’s health they must be removed. Another reason for extraction could be that a tooth is “non-restorable”, which is a designation when no matter what treatment we try they can not be fixed. Whether simple or complex, at Angstadt Family Dental our doctors can complete just about any extraction necessary for our patients. The most important part about trying to save teeth is starting care BEFORE and pursuing preventive care to prevent losing teeth.
Do you need a tooth extracted due to infection or decay? Contact us to set up an appointment at your nearest location.
After an extraction, the doctor and/or assistant will always explain what the patient should expect post-operatively and give them the best instructions to help them heal quickly and pain-free. Remember, primary healing occurs over 1-2 weeks and secondary healing occurs over 4-6 weeks.
Here some instructions and some expectations after a dental extraction that can be expected for all or most patients.
