Feel Peaceful During Tooth Extractions in Kalamazoo, MI
Our Process Will Put You at Ease
At KZoo Family Dental, our experienced dentists follow a safe and effective tooth extraction process to remove the decayed, damaged, or impacted tooth. Our tooth extraction includes:
- Anesthesia: We begin by applying anesthesia to the affected tooth. This will help numb the pain and help you relax during the extraction.
- Remove the Tooth: Next, we utilize innovative and safe dental tools to gently loosen the tooth. In some situations, including extreme decay and damage, incisions may be made to access the tooth root.
- Stitches: Finally, we’ll clean and disinfect the gums to eliminate any bacteria in the wound. We’ll stitch the wound to help improve recovery.
How to Recover From a Tooth Extraction
Our dentists recommend treating the affected area gently and with the needed care after your extraction. Doing so will quicken the recovery process and reduce complications, so you can get back to your normal activities.
Make sure to eat soft, nutritious foods and consume plenty of water during your recovery. You can brush and floss your teeth as usual but avoid brushing the targeted area until it is sufficiently healed. Thoroughly rinse and wash your mouth with water 12 hours after your procedure and do so three times a day until it’s fully healed to keep the area clean.
Schedule a follow-up exam if you experience continued pain, soreness or inflammation after recovery. Our team will assess your mouth, find the cause of your continual pain and develop a treatment to get you back to normal.
