No matter what effort we make to keep our teeth and mouth healthy, occasionally a person needs to have a tooth extracted. Accidents happen, and teeth break. Periodontal disease may make it necessary to remove a tooth before the decay spreads to other parts of your mouth. Also, some people have extra teeth or too many teeth for their mouth or jaw. In this case, it is better to remove the unneeded tooth to prevent misalignments and other dental issues.

What is the Process of a Tooth Extraction? Does It Hurt?
Your tooth is probably already uncomfortable if you are considering an extraction. So once your tooth is gone, you can heal and be out of pain. Many people feel better if they know what to expect during a procedure.
First, check with your dentist to see if your tooth can be saved. The dentists at Mesa Dental will save your tooth if they can. But sometimes the tooth just has to come out. During an extraction appointment, the dentist will anesthetize the area around your tooth using injections. Next, the dentist will use forceps to gently rock the tooth back and forth to loosen the tooth. You should feel the tooth moving but feel no pain. The gum will heal over the area of the extraction without stitches or with stitches if the hole is large. These stitches will dissolve.
If you have to have more serious oral surgery for your tooth extraction, the gentle dentists at Mesa Dental can use a general anesthetic to put you to sleep while the extraction is being done. You won’t feel a thing while your tooth is being removed.
You will have pain medication after your tooth is removed. You might need to take antibiotics in conjunction with your extraction to resolve or prevent infection. Soon your mouth will heal and be healthy once again.
