What Can You Expect During Extractions?
Our qualified dentists in Mississauga, Ontario, will review the extent of your damaged tooth by scanning it. After the x-ray, we will schedule your appointment at a convenient time. To make you feel relaxed, the dentist will give you deeper sedation. Further, using modern techniques, instruments and technology, the entire process of tooth extraction will be performed.
The whole process will take less than an hour, and you will need the medication recommended by your dentist. We offer a variety of restorative treatment, such as dental implant and more.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
A dentist usually asks you to rest for 48-72 hours after a dental extraction so that the treatment area can clot. After that, the patient should be able to resume normal activities. Soft tissue normally heals in 3-4 weeks.
How painful is a tooth extraction?
A dental extraction, whether surgical or non-surgical, should not be painful. There should be no discomfort. However, you may feel a slight pinch during the extraction. One must be sedated to feel absolutely nothing.
How many teeth can a dentist pull at once?
The maximum number of teeth that can be removed in one dental extraction session without risk is not clearly defined. The answer varies based on your oral health situation and your dentist’s suggestions
What is the best painkiller for tooth extraction?
Paracetamol, Naproxen and ibuprofen are popular pain relievers for tooth extractions. You should start taking painkillers as soon as you feel the local anaesthetic wearing off.
