Tooth extraction is a simple process that is performed in our office with anesthesia so that you have as comfortable an experience as possible. Your dentist may recommend this common treatment for reasons such as :

  • The tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair
  • The infected tooth that can’t be saved by a root canal
  • Teeth loosened due to periodontal disease and can not be saved
  • Overcrowding – For children and teens getting ready for orthodontics, a tooth may be taken out so that other teeth have room to grow in.

How Does Tooth Extraction Work

To prepare for the removal of a tooth, your dentist will administer anesthesia so you don’t feel any pain. The tooth area will become numb and you will feel numbness a few hours after the treatment. The dentist will then begin the extraction. You won’t feel pain, but you may feel pressure. The dentist, however, will make sure to ask you during the procedure if you do feel any pain.

After the procedure, the dentist will control the bleeding with small stitches. You’ll be given gauze to absorb any additional bleeding, although that should be minimal. Replace the gauze as necessary. For any pain following the procedure, your dentist might recommend an over the counter pain medication. Within the first 24 hours of the treatment take care when eating and drinking by avoiding that side of the mouth. Depending on which tooth has been pulled, the site can take about 7 to 10 days to fully heal.

The overall goal of tooth extraction is to take away pain, restore your dental health or improve the long term appearance of your smile. If you have any concerns or questions about tooth extraction in Burton, MI, please call our office at (810) 736-9778 to speak to one of our staff.

I made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!

I’ve had 4/5 of the dental hygienists clean my teeth and I’ve adored all of them! They are so friendly and make me feel comfortable while I’m there. The entire staff is extremely caring! Highly recommend!
