At Kerhoulas Dental Rosedale in Toronto, our dentists recommend tooth extractions for patients for many different reasons. Sometimes it's because of a tooth that is poorly positioned in a patient's mouth. In other cases, tooth extractions are recommended to remedy badly decayed teeth, abscesses, serious gum disease or simply to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
Wisdom teeth are molars that erupt behind your regular molars, often referred to as '3rd Molars'.
Will a tooth extraction be painful?
At Kerhoulas Dental Rosedale, tooth extractions are no longer a painful process. We begin by placing a local anaesthetic to the area surrounding your tooth so that you will not feel pain while your tooth is extracted.
Using precise instruments, we will carefully remove the tooth. If anything becomes uncomfortable for you during the procedure, our caring team will be listening and ready to help make you comfortable.
What happens after the extraction?
During your extraction appointment, our attentive team will explain how you will care for your mouth after the extraction.
By following some simple steps, you can prevent any problems following extraction. Eating soft foods like ice cream, pudding, soups, applesauce, and smoothies will allow you to heal quicker. You can slowly add solid foods back into your diet – just follow your post-surgical treatment plan.
