When a tooth is broken, severely decayed or too damaged to be restored, tooth extraction may be required.

What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure where a tooth and its root are completely removed. Tooth extraction may be necessary if no other treatment options are available.

Arlington dentist – Dr. Rima Kabaragha will numb the area around the tooth with a local anaesthetic. The tooth is loosened and then taken out.

For teeth that are broken below the gum line or for wisdom teeth, an incision in the gum will be made to extract the root. Contact your dentist in Arlington, VA for a tooth extraction consultation.

What happens after the extraction?

Following the extraction, the gum will then be sutured to heal.

Your Arlington dentist will ensure that the healing process begins normally after the extraction. Some bleeding may be normal. A blood clot should form soon after the extraction, which shouldn’t be dislodged if possible.

Your mouth may feel a little sore once the anesthetic wears off, lasting a day or two after the extraction. Swelling can be reduced with an ice pack for periods of 10 minutes at a time.

Avoid chewing, drinking hot drinks, smoking, using mouthwash or brushing the extraction area.
