Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction, though it may seem daunting, is a standard procedure handled with utmost care at Canton Dental Associates. The process starts with a comprehensive examination of the patient's dental health. This involves a detailed assessment of the patient's dental history, current oral condition, and oftentimes includes X-rays to get a clear picture of the tooth's position and the state of the surrounding bone.

Once the dental examination is complete, a personalized treatment plan is formulated. If extraction is decided upon as the optimal solution, the patient is thoroughly briefed on preparation for the procedure, post-operative care, and potential alternatives. This ensures that our patients make an informed decision about their dental health.

During the extraction procedure, our highly skilled team uses state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precision and efficiency. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the area around the tooth, thereby making the procedure painless. The tooth is then carefully loosened using a tool known as an elevator, after which dental forceps are used to remove the tooth.

Our team prioritizes the comfort of our patients above everything else. We continuously monitor our patients for any signs of discomfort throughout the procedure. Post-procedure, detailed instructions are provided for at-home care to ensure a smooth recovery. This includes guidance on managing any discomfort with over-the-counter medications, dietary recommendations, and advice on maintaining oral hygiene during the recovery phase.

One of the distinguishing aspects of our service is the meticulous aftercare. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor the healing process, and our team is always available for any queries or concerns our patients may have post-extraction.
