Tooth Extractions in Justin, TX

What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. This treatment is often necessary when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be repaired, or in cases where overcrowding is an issue. It's a common dental procedure that can help alleviate discomfort and prevent further dental complications. At Valor Dental in Justin, TX, Dr. Greg Kiene and Dr. Chris Merkley are experienced in performing tooth extractions and are dedicated to making the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible for their patients.

The Tooth Extraction Treatment Process

Consultation and Examination

The first step in the tooth extraction process is a thorough consultation and examination. During this phase, your dentist will review your dental and medical history, take X-rays, and examine the condition of your tooth. This step is crucial to determine the best course of action and to plan the extraction procedure meticulously to ensure a successful outcome.

The Extraction Procedure

Once the examination is complete and your dentist has determined that extraction is necessary, the procedure will be scheduled. On the day of the extraction, your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Using specialized dental tools, your dentist will then gently rock the tooth back and forth until it loosens and can be pulled out. The process is quick and should be painless due to the anesthetic.

Aftercare and Recovery

After the extraction, it's essential to follow your dentist's aftercare instructions. This may include avoiding certain foods, not smoking, and practicing good oral hygiene to prevent infection. The recovery period varies from person to person, but most people can resume normal activities within a day or two.

Basic Extraction

A basic extraction, also known as a simple extraction, is performed on a tooth that can be seen in the mouth. This procedure is typically straightforward and can be carried out under local anesthesia. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and can resume normal activities shortly after the procedure. Our team at Valor Dental takes every precaution to ensure that the extraction process is as gentle and pain-free as possible, providing detailed aftercare instructions to promote quick healing.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Post-procedure, our staff provides comprehensive care instructions and is always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have, ensuring a smooth and swift healing process.
