Medicaid Accepted Tooth Extraction Dentist Lathrup Village & Southfield Michigan - dental-xrayWe Can Take Away Pain Caused by Tooth Damage, Crowding, and Decay

Gum disease, severe tooth decay or damaged teeth are all reason why patients may need a tooth extraction. The dental professionals at Affordable Dental Care understand that the tooth removal process can be daunting and scary for most people.

To help lessen the stress, our team uses only the best technology and latest sedation dentistry techniques that’ll ensure you feel little pain and less anxiety during the process.

The Extraction Process

When the time of the extraction happens, the dentist will numb your tooth, jaw bone and the surrounding gums with a local anesthetic. During the actual extraction, you will feel a lot of pressure due to firmly rocking the tooth so the dentists can widen the socket to remove the tooth. Although, you will not feel any pain, as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves.

After the Extraction

Once completed, it’s important for a blood clot to form so it can stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. Once the clot has formed, be sure to not disturb or dislodge the cloth by rinsing vigorously, sucking on straws, smoking, or brushing the teeth next to the extraction site for 72 hours. After the extraction, you may feel some pain and experience swelling which is normal. Using an ice pack gently applied to the area can help minimize some of the swelling. The swelling typically subsides after 48 hours. As for the pain, take pain medications as prescribed and directed. If the pain medication doesn’t seem to be working, please call our office. After a few days, you should begin to feel less pain and can resume your normal, daily activities. However, if you have heavy bleeding, extreme swelling or severe pain, please call our office as soon as possible.
