Removing the Problem – Uncomplicated Tooth Extractions

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-brunette

If your tooth is too badly damaged to benefit from a restorative treatment like a root canal, your dentist may decide to remove it. Common problems that lead to a dental extraction include tooth decay, advanced gum disease, and trauma. An extraction can also resolve problems with tooth crowding, and it may be part of an orthodontic treatment plan. Before removing a tooth, your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area, so you won’t feel any pain. After the tooth is removed, you may experience some minor bleeding. Your body will fill in the vacant area where the tooth was with a blood clot.

Dental Extraction Recovery Tips

Most people recover from tooth extractions quickly and without complications. Here are a few useful tips to help make the recovery process easier.

  • Avoid doing anything that could inhibit normal healing.
  • Rest as much as possible, and avoid heavy exercise to reduce bleeding.
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco.
  • Be very gentle when brushing your teeth or rinsing your mouth.
  • Avoid the extraction site when cleaning your teeth.
  • Do not drink from a straw for the first 24 hours after your extraction.
  • Follow a soft diet as recommended by your dentist.
  • Apply ice or a cold pack to reduce swelling.
  • Inform your dentist if you experience excessive pain, bleeding or swelling.

Finding an Affordable Dentist in Baltimore

If you need to have a tooth removed, don’t procrastinate. Waiting too long will cause more pain, and increase your risk of serious infection. If you can’t afford to see a dentist, consider contacting a third-party finance company, or seek help from your local dental schools.
