FAQs

Do you offer sedation for surgical extractions?

We do not offer sedation, but we do provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas), local anesthesia to help manage pain and anxiety meds if needed during the procedure.

Can I take anxiety medication before my extraction?

Yes, we can provide anxiety-reducing medications if needed. Please discuss your anxiety with your dentist so we can determine the best approach for you.

Will I feel pain during the extraction?

Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure. We use local anesthesia to numb the area, and nitrous oxide can help reduce anxiety and pain perception.

How long does the extraction process take?

The length of the procedure depends on the complexity of the extraction. Simple extractions may take only a few minutes, while more complex cases may take longer.

How long is the recovery period after an extraction?

Recovery time varies depending on the individual and the complexity of the extraction. Most people can return to normal activities within a few days, but it may take up to two weeks for the area to not be sensitive anymore. As a rule of thumb, it takes 8 weeks for a tooth socket to be 80% healed. The bone will slowly grow back and the gums will grow over the site and then both will remodel and no more changes will occur.

What should I do after the extraction to ensure proper healing?

Your dentist will provide you with detailed post-extraction care instructions. These may include avoiding certain foods, keeping the area clean, and taking any prescribed medications as directed.

What are the risks of surgical extractions?

While complications are rare, some risks include infection, prolonged bleeding, and damage to surrounding teeth or tissues. Your dentist will discuss these risks with you and take steps to minimize them.

Can I drive myself home after the extraction?

If you have received anxiety medications, you should have a responsible adult drive you home, as it will take some time for the effects to wear off.

How much will the extraction cost?

The cost of the extraction depends on the complexity of the procedure, what your insurance covers and whether any additional treatments are needed. The font office will provide you with an estimate before the procedure.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes, we accept most dental insurance plans and can take payments for ones we are not in network with. Please contact our office for more information and to verify that we accept your specific plan.

What should I do if I experience complications after the extraction?

If you experience any complications, such as severe pain, prolonged bleeding, or signs of infection, please contact our office immediately. We will provide you with the necessary care and instructions.

Can I eat or drink before the extraction?

You may eat and drink as normal before the extraction. However, we recommend avoiding heavy meals and consuming only light foods and liquids a few hours before the procedure.

How should I prepare for the extraction?

Please arrive at our office on time and wear comfortable clothing. If you are taking any medications, please continue to take them as prescribed, unless otherwise instructed by your dentist.

What should I avoid after the extraction?

After the extraction, you should avoid drinking through a straw, smoking, and engaging in strenuous physical activity. These activities can disrupt the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Can I brush my teeth after the extraction?

You should avoid brushing the extraction site for the first 24 hours after the procedure. After that, you may gently brush the area, taking care to avoid disturbing the blood clot that forms in the socket. Use sensitivity as your guide. If it doesn’t hurt, you should be fine. If it is more than slightly sensitive, avoid that area until it heals more.
