Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

When is tooth removal necessary?

The team at Silver Leaf Dentistry will do what we can to save your natural tooth whenever possible. However, removal may become necessary if your tooth is badly diseased or damaged. Left alone, an infected tooth can damage your other teeth and gums, creating more problems and costing you more money in the long run.

What is a dry socket after a tooth removal?

Dry socket occurs when the blood clot that has formed where your tooth was removed is dislodged or dissolves. The nerves and bone are then left exposed to food and air, creating intense pain. If you rinse and spit often after your extraction, use a straw, or eat hard foods, you increase your chances of experiencing dry socket.

How long does it take a tooth removal to heal?

For most types of extractions, you can expect the site to heal within seven to 10 days. You actually play a role in how quickly you heal, however. We’ll give you complete aftercare instructions for you to follow. The closer you stick to these guidelines, the quicker and more comfortable your healing period will be.
