There are several reasons why you would need a dental extraction. These reasons include overcrowding in your mouth, an infected tooth or root, risk of infection, periodontal disease, and the most common reason, a tooth that is too damaged to fix from either trauma or decay. No matter what the reason is for your tooth extraction, it is important to turn to a dentist that you can trust.
Most of the time your dentist will provide you with a local anesthetic before you get your tooth taken out. This helps ensure that your tooth is numb and more comfortable for the extraction. After your tooth has been removed a clot will form in the socket and post operative instructions will be given. Occasionally the clot can break free of the socket and expose the bone underneath, this is called a dry socket. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions exactly in order to avoid a painful dry socket.
