Tooth Extractions Q & A

What are tooth extractions?

Tooth extractions are a minor surgical procedure where your dentist removes teeth that are severely decayed, damaged, or too crowded. Madison Dental Partners providers use the latest advances in surgical tools and procedures, as well as sedation dentistry, to give you the best possible outcome.

Why might I need tooth extractions?

Your Madison Dental Partners specialist may recommend dental extractions if you experience:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Tooth damage or trauma
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Tooth crowding
  • Baby teeth that don't fall out

Tooth extractions might be the first step to dental implants or dentures that improve the look of your smile.

Am I a candidate for tooth extractions?

To find out if you’re a candidate for tooth extractions at Madison Dental Partners, your dentist reviews the results of your dental X-rays, discusses your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and talks about your desired outcome. They work with you to design a treatment that matches your needs.

What happens during tooth extractions?

Before undergoing tooth extractions, your Madison Dental Partners provider numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative to help you relax or fall asleep. Your dentist makes tiny incisions to carefully remove targeted teeth and their roots. They stitch up the incisions as needed and place gauze in empty spaces to stop any bleeding.

What should I expect after tooth extractions?

After your tooth extraction, you rest in a recovery area; then, you can have a friend or family member drive you home. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water as directed by your dentist and begin eating a soft foods diet. When you brush your teeth, do so gently. 

Take medications as directed by your dentist. Avoid drinking through a straw or participating in vigorous physical activity until they give you the okay.

After a healing period, your dentist may recommend replacing extracted teeth with implant-supported crowns, a bridge, or dentures. They develop a personalized cosmetic dental treatment that perfects the appearance of your smile.
