Sometimes, severely damaged teeth can’t be saved. In these cases, tooth extractions are ideal for eliminating the pain of a damaged tooth and preventing further complications.
Tooth extractions are usually a last resort option at Dental Home Family Dentistry. We practice conservative dentistry, which means we want to preserve your natural teeth whenever it’s possible to do so. But if a tooth has been severely damaged by tooth decay, infection, or dental trauma, a tooth extraction may be the only option for getting you out of pain and preventing potentially serious complications. Contact Dental Home Family Dentistry today, and explore all of your options for restoring your smile.
Every year, around five million people have their wisdom teeth removed. This makes wisdom teeth extractions one of the most common oral surgeries performed by dentists.

Damaged teeth can cause serious toothaches. With an extraction, you can completely eliminate the pain of your damaged tooth and get back to your normal routine.
Left untreated, unhealthy teeth can cause serious or even life-threatening complications, in some cases. With an extraction, you won’t have to worry about future complications and you’ll get peace of mind.
After your extraction, you’ll have lots of options for replacing your missing tooth, such as dental implants, dental bridges, or partial dentures.
To begin the tooth extraction process, your dentist at Dental Home Family Dentistry will clean and numb the treatment area, and administer sedation, if needed. This ensures you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment.
Once the surgical site has been prepared, your dentist will use special dental tools to loosen the tooth. Once the tooth is loose enough, they will use a pair of dental forceps to grasp the tooth securely and pull it out of the socket.
After tooth removal, your dentist will clean up and disinfect the area and then suture the surgical site shut in order to promote proper healing. This process will be repeated if you’re having multiple teeth pulled. Otherwise, you’ll be sent home with a set of recovery instructions to follow as your mouth heals.

It takes about two weeks for your mouth to heal completely after a tooth extraction. However, you can get back to your normal routine within a day or two. Just make sure to follow the post-operative instructions provided by your doctor to keep your mouth healthy as you heal and recover.
You won’t feel any pain or discomfort during your tooth extraction surgery. Your doctor will clean and numb your mouth, and we also offer dental sedation in Phoenix to help you feel comfortable during your treatment.
However, once your numbing and sedation wear off, you may feel some discomfort. This is normal, since tooth extractions are an invasive surgical procedure. Your doctor will give you instructions on how to mitigate pain, and may also prescribe prescription painkillers. Fill any prescriptions and follow your recovery instructions to minimize discomfort as you heal.
