Dental Extraction and You

Having a tooth pulled is not on anyone’s bucket list. We all hope to go through life retaining the full set of teeth we were born with. However, most people will have one or more teeth pulled by age 50.

Here are several reasons a tooth may need to be extracted:

  • Advanced decay
  • Broken teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Trauma or injury
  • Crowding of teeth (typically discovered with orthodontic treatment)

Follow these tips provided by Mayo Clinic to minimize discomfort:

  • Brush your teeth with warm water
  • Avoid drinking hot, cold or sweet beverages
  • Apply an OTC topical anesthetic to the painful tooth, unless your physician recommends otherwise
  • Consider using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth
  • Do not avoid painful areas. Be thorough when cleaning your teeth and gums
