At Hastings Family Dental, we always aim to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are situations where a tooth extraction is necessary to protect your overall oral health. Whether due to severe decay, advanced periodontal disease or impacted wisdom teeth, our team is here to ensure the process is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Tooth extraction involves the careful removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Here is what you can expect during the procedure:

  1. Consultation and Evaluation: We begin with a thorough examination of your dental condition, using X-rays to assess the tooth’s position and condition.
  2. Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area around the tooth to be extracted.
  3. The Extraction: Our skilled dentists and team gently removes the tooth, taking care to minimize any impact on surrounding tissues.
  4. Aftercare Instructions: We provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and swift healing process, including tips on managing discomfort and promoting healing.

Benefits of having tooth extractions at our practice include:

  • Relief from pain and discomfort associated with the problem tooth.
  • Prevention of further oral health issues, such as the spread of decay or infection.
  • Improvement in overall oral health and, in some cases, preparation for further dental treatments like orthodontics or implants.
