Tooth Extraction in Sahuarita, Arizona

Tooth Extraction Treatment in Sahuarita, AZ

We can perform simple or complex tooth extractions. Simple extractions typically require anesthetic to remove a tooth above the gum line. This will numb the tooth so you will not feel pain during treatment. When we remove a tooth above the gum line, we will gently rock the tooth back and forth. This treatment can take just minutes. 

Complex extractions remove teeth at or below the gum line. We will recommend dental sedation to ensure your comfort during this lengthy treatment. Depending on the location of your teeth, it can take hours to complete a complex extraction. 

Removing Wisdom Teeth

Some patients will require wisdom tooth removal if their teeth aren’t emerging properly. Wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to emerge. They erupt behind the back molars. However, they can easily become impacted, meaning they cannot grow properly.

As a result, wisdom teeth can dig into other teeth and cause overcrowding. Please let us know if you feel your wisdom teeth emerge behind your molars. We will take dental X-rays and schedule an extraction if needed.

Tooth Extractions Post-Op 

After your procedure, we will place gauze on the extraction sites to promote healing. You will begin to notice blood clots forming at the extraction sites. These clots protect the tissue and nerves. Contact us if you dislodge the blood clots, as you can develop dry socket. Dry socket is a painful condition caused by nerve exposure.

Sticking to a soft diet for multiple days after the extraction and keeping gauze at the site until bleeding dies down will ensure the sites heal properly. We will also prescribe pain medication as needed and recommend ice packs to treat swelling. 

Restoring Extracted Teeth

If we remove permanent teeth that require replacement, we can also provide dental implants after the extraction site heals. Dental implants can replace single missing teeth or all teeth in your mouth. Securing single dental crowns, bridges, or dentures with implants ensures restorations last.
