At Seaside Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer tooth extraction treatment in our Hampstead, NC office. Some patients may be fearful of extraction treatments. However, we ensure that our patients feel comfortable by using a local anesthetic during treatment. Patients will also receive dental sedation for their procedure so they have comfortable and pain-free care. Dental extractions are general dental solutions that prevent infection, damage, or further tooth loss.
The Tooth Extraction Procedure
Dr. Weis ensures that the tooth extraction procedure is always comfortable. To begin treatment, he numbs the area with an anesthetic. He carefully removes the tooth and covers the socket with sterile gauze. He may also place a few stitches into the socket.
For a few days after the extraction procedure, you will feel some discomfort; we will prescribe you pain medication for your recovery. After two to three weeks, your gum and bone tissue will regenerate. If we have extracted your tooth or teeth due to excessive damage or severe infection, we can replace them with implants. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants adds balance to the bite and supports your oral health.
If your socket is bleeding more than several days after your extraction, or if you feel severe pain at the socket, contact our office immediately. Excessive pain or bleeding is abnormal and should be treated as soon as possible.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth need to be removed if they are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth irritate the gums and lead to pain in the back of the mouth. Tooth extractions are necessary to alleviate this pain and prevent wisdom teeth from damaging the molars. Sometimes wisdom teeth can erupt at an odd angle and break or wear down adjacent teeth. Although not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed, we will keep track of the status of your wisdom teeth as they come in.
