Dentistry in Ajax is able to perform tooth extractions right in our office.
There are many reasons why we may recommend extracting a tooth. Our dentists may suggest that we remove a tooth because your tooth is poorly positioned in your mouth, badly decayed, or abscessed. If you have developed serious gum disease or are in preparation for orthodontic treatment, you may also require a tooth extraction.
Our team will begin by placing a local anesthetic to the area surrounding your tooth. If anything becomes uncomfortable for you during the procedure, we will be listening and ready to help make you comfortable. If you have developed gum disease, our team periodontist, Dr. Schure, can work with you to treat your gums.
During your appointment, our team will explain to you how to care for your mouth after the extraction. By following some simple steps, you can prevent problems following extraction.
After your procedure, you should eat only soft foods for a couple of days. As you heal, you can add solid foods back into your diet.
