At VIVA, we try and save every tooth. However, some problems may require surgical extraction to regain optimal dental health and provide successful restorative treatment.
With sedation dentistry, you will feel almost no pain at all, you will be relaxed and at ease throughout the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions.
Typically, during a tooth extraction procedure, sedation is administered to the patient to make them feel relaxed and comfortable. Also, many teeth that are subjected to extraction have nerves that are dead or dying, which means that the affected tooth may not be able to send pain signals out.
Once the procedure is done, detailed at-home care instructions will be given to the patient. To speed up the recovery and avoid any complications, patients must follow the given at-home instructions diligently. However, do know that the recovery period varies from patient to patient.
ou can eat as soon as you get home. We recommend starting with soft, light foods such as soups, mashed potatoes, and apple sauce. Make sure the food you eat is not HOT, as you will be numb and unable to feel if your tongue or lip has been burnt.
If teeth break through the surface of the gums and are coming in straight, then we can remove them with traditional extraction techniques. Traditional techniques involve pulling the tooth out after we numb the area surrounding the tooth. If the tooth is impacted or has yet to break through the surface of the gums, surgical extractions are necessary. In this case, the gum tissue will need to be cut open to expose the tooth.
