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 came in for my new patient appointment and had Brianna as my hygienist. First off, she was absolutely AMAZING! From the beginning she made me feel super welcome. My cleaning and X-rays went smooth she wasn’t rough like some hygienist are. The doctor was also welcoming when he came into the room. If I could give this place 10 stars I would! If you are looking for a new dentist stop looking because this is the place to be! Definitely recommend! 😊

Great place - I wouldn't go anywhere else!!! I really hate going to the dentist, so I've put things off until it's been an emergency. This place was recommended to me, and they got me right in right away when I was in immense pain. The staff is friendly and comforting, and worked with me so that I could take care of the most pressing concerns while staying within my budget. I brought my 9 year old daughter there yesterday to get her first fillings, and they were just amazing in the way they explained everything and made her feel so comfortable! I also recommended them to a friend who's dentist wanted her to wait a week for a cracked tooth. Again, they got her in that day, of course. I really can't say enough about the amazing staff and flexible hours - highly recommended!!
