Our team of skilled specialists is well-equipped to make your visit as simple and painless as possible. Our personalized approach ensures that each patient receives the highest quality of care, from the initial consultation to aftercare.

When Extraction is the Best Step Forward

Our priority is maintaining the health and beauty of your natural teeth. However, sometimes tooth extraction is necessary to ensure the best outcome for your oral and overall health. Some of the most common instances dental extraction may be recommended include:

  • A tooth is severely decayed
  • A tooth is cracked or damaged beyond repair
  • A tooth is causing overcrowding or orthodontic issues
  • There’s an oral infection or abscess

Though our team of specialists does everything possible to avoid tooth removal, we understand the importance of preserving your oral health. Our expert team is well-equipped to perform tooth extractions with minimal discomfort and provide thorough aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Trust us to always have your best interest at heart and to make your dental experience a positive one.

Our Gentle Dental Extraction Process

To help take the intimidation out of your visit, our team takes extra care to ensure that your dental extraction process is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. It all starts with an initial consultation, where we take the time to understand your unique situation and answer any questions you may have. When it’s time for the extraction, we use local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure. Our experts then carefully remove the tooth, and provide you with instructions on how to manage any bleeding and care for the extraction site at home.

Quick Tips for Tooth Extraction Aftercare

After the procedure, it’s important to practice proper aftercare to promote healing and prevent complications. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind during the first few days following your tooth extraction: 

  • Bite down gently on a piece of clean gauze to reduce bleeding 
  • Apply an ice pack to your cheek to reduce swelling 
  • Avoid using straws or smoking for the first 24 hours 
  • Stick to soft foods for a few days and avoid hot, spicy, or crunchy foods 
  • Gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water to keep the extraction area clean

At Old Greenwich Dental Center, we prioritize your oral health and comfort, so you can trust us to provide compassionate care every step of the way. Contact us anytime for clarification or more information on preventing infection and healing in comfort.
