Tooth extraction is one of the most basic and fundamental of all dental procedures. It is a common procedure that every dental professional should be able to perform efficiently and safely.
At Prevent Dental Suite, we want our patients to enjoy a healthy, full set of the original teeth and we do our best to preserve the strength and beauty of everyone’s natural teeth.
But situations arise that make tooth extraction the best, and sometimes, only option available. When that happens, the professionals at Prevent Dental Suite offer the finest, most modern treatment available to make the procedure as safe and painless as possible.
Reasons for Removal
Some reasons for extraction include:
- Severely cracked or damaged teeth
- Severe decay, dental cavities, or infection
- Risk of infection due to other health concerns (e.g. compromised immune system)
- Crowded mouth and orthodontic necessities (including supernumerary teeth)
- Impaction of wisdom teeth
- Financial considerations when extraction is the cheaper and desired option
Tooth Extraction Procedure
An extraction procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
The most painful part of the procedure will be the minor discomfort from the application of the local anaesthetic. The professionals at Prevent Dental Suite will make this part of the procedure as pain free as possible.
Most people recover from all pain in one or two days. After about a week, most people can stop taking any special care with the extraction zone and return to eating and drinking normally.
What to Expect after Tooth Extraction
Recovering from an extraction procedure is usually easy and simple.
Your recovery will depend on the severity of your particular procedure. The more difficult your extraction was, the longer recovery will take. We will guide you through all of the procedures, but even in more severe cases, recovery is not something to worry about.
We will tell you exactly how to care for your mouth post-procedure, to facilitate the safest and fastest recovery possible. Follow the instructions diligently.

What Should You Tell Your Dentist Before a Tooth Extraction?
Having a tooth pulled is a very safe procedure. However, as with any medical procedure, there is the possibility of complications under some conditions. So inform your dentist about any of the following:
- Medications you are taking, for whatever reason (especially anything that acts as an anticoagulant)
- Your medical history (even things that seem completely unrelated can be important such as: artificial joints or heart valves, heart conditions, liver conditions, impaired immune system)
- If you have any phobias (extreme fear) of tooth extraction or dental procedures
- Feel free to ask about any concerns you have. We are happy to answer all your questions and want you to be relaxed and comfortable.
