Thanks to modern advancements in dentistry, the tooth extraction process is considerably less invasive and painful than in the past. It is normal to feel anxious when going into an extraction procedure! Always remember that our team of skilled professionals are here to help ease stress and provide comfort.
Tips for before your procedure:
- Ask questions – being “in the know” helps patients feel more in control.
- Seek insight from your healthcare professional.
- Be aware of the recommendations for aftercare.
Tips for a smooth extraction recovery:
- Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing.
- Avoid smoking for the recommended amount of time following your extraction.
- Avoid rinsing your mouth vigorously.
- Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
- Follow the diet your dentist suggests.
The most common reasons for tooth extractions are overcrowding (often with wisdom teeth), trauma, and disease.
At a minimum, all patients will have numbing agents administered before a tooth extraction. General anesthesia is used in some cases at the discretion of the dentist and the patient.

My daughter is 2 and was extremely scared and inconsolable at my previous dentist. At this office the dentist managed to make her calm and comfortable. I am happy to have found this place since I am taking her dental health very seriously
