In these cases, we are pleased to offer excellent tooth removals that are both comfortable and efficient. This procedure is completed over the course of one visit and can help you regain total health and wellness in just a few days. Keep reading to learn more about how tooth removals work, and what you can expect if you need to have a tooth extraction in Fayetteville.

When Is Extraction Required?

Woman with a toothacheWe will recommend tooth extraction when it is clear that the tooth cannot be rescued with a dental crown or root canal and that its existence in the mouth is posing a threat to your oral health. A tooth extraction is often required for significant tooth decay or for an abscessed tooth. Additionally, the third molars, or wisdom teeth, will usually need to be removed if they cause problems upon eruption.

What Is Recovery Like after Extraction?

Single dental implantYour recovery period depends on whether you had a simple or surgical extraction. After a simple extraction, you should feel back to normal the next morning or soon after. A surgical extraction takes a little longer. We may send you home with medication and talk you through specific post-op instructions, like maintaining a soft foods diet until you feel comfortable chewing. Follow these directions carefully and do not hesitate to get in touch if bleeding, discomfort, or swelling worsen or do not improve after several days.
