Important Consideration After Your Tooth Extraction Process

It’s never easy hearing that you need a tooth extracted. But sometimes it’s the best way to eliminate infection and get you back on track to a healthy smile and life. If your dentist recommends an extraction, be sure to discuss replacement options with them too. Dental restorations like dental implants, dental bridges, or partial dentures can restore appearance, function, and overall oral health.

Why Tooth Removal is Necessary?

Tooth removal is a solution for many oral health issues, for example:

  1. Oral Infections: When tooth decay extends to the pulp — the center of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels — bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp leading to infection. Often this can be corrected with root canal therapy, but if the infection is so severe that antibiotics or root canal therapy do not cure it, extraction may be needed to prevent the spread of infection.
  2. Crowded Mouth: Sometimes dentists extract teeth to prepare the mouth for orthodontics. The goal of orthodontics is to properly align the teeth, which may not be possible if your teeth are too big for your mouth. Likewise, if a tooth cannot break through the gum (erupt) because there is no room in the mouth for it, your dentist may recommend extraction.

Types of Tooth Extractions

Tooth pullings are categorized mainly into two types:


Simple ExtractionA straightforward extraction for teeth visible in the mouth.
Surgical ExtractionEmployed for teeth broken at the gum line or not yet come in, involving removal of gum tissue or bone.


Let’s break down the types of tooth extractions

  • Simple Extraction: This is a straightforward extraction for teeth that are visible in the mouth. General dentists usually perform simple extractions using a local anesthetic to numb the area, then loosen the tooth with an instrument known as an elevator before finally removing it with dental forceps.
  • Surgical Extraction: A more complex procedure, surgical extraction is employed for teeth that have broken at the gum line or have not yet come in. It typically involves the removal of gum tissue or bone. At Lansdowne Family Dental, our experienced dental surgeons ensure a safe and comfortable surgical extraction experience.

Post Extraction Care

After your tooth is uprooted, following the post-operative instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery. Here are some of the guidelines provided by our dentists at Lansdowne Family Dental:

  • Blood Clot Protection: It’s vital to keep the extraction site clean and prevent anything from dislodging the blood clot that forms in the socket.
  • Avoid Certain Activities: Refrain from smoking, and avoid vigorous rinsing or spitting for 24 hours after the extraction to foster optimal healing.
  • Medication Adherence: Adhere to prescribed medications to manage pain and prevent infection.

Cost of Tooth Extraction

The cost of dental extraction varies based on the complexity, location, and expertise of the dental practitioner. At Lansdowne Family Dental, we aim to provide affordable, transparent pricing for our tooth extraction services. Insurance coverage can also significantly offset the cost, making the procedure accessible to many. The table below shows the cost factors and insurance coverage

Risks and Complications

While tooth extraction is a standard procedure, like any surgery, it carries certain risks. Here’s what to keep in mind and discuss with our dental professionals at Lansdowne Family Dental:

  • Infection: The open wound left by a removed tooth can become infected if not properly cared for. Following post-operative instructions is crucial.
  • Dry Socket: This occurs when the blood clot at the extraction site is dislodged, exposing underlying bone and nerves.
  • Damage to Surrounding Teeth: Particularly in the case of impacted wisdom teeth, neighboring teeth or surrounding bone might be damaged during the extraction process.


What should I expect during a tooth extraction?

  • During a tooth extraction, you can expect the area to be numbed with local anesthesia, the tooth to be removed carefully, and instructions for post-operative care to be provided.

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

  • Recovery times can vary, but typically, initial healing takes 1 to 2 weeks. Full healing can take up to 6 months.

How can I avoid a dry socket?

  • Avoiding smoking, not using straws, and not poking the extraction site are some measures to prevent a dry socket.

Is tooth extraction painful?

  • With modern anesthesia, pain is significantly minimized during the procedure. Post-operative discomfort can be managed with prescribed medications.

How should I clean my mouth after tooth extraction?

  • It’s advised to avoid rinsing for 24 hours post-extraction. After that, gentle rinsing with warm salt water can help keep the area clean.

Can I eat normally after tooth extraction?

  • It’s best to stick to soft foods and avoid hot or spicy items for a few days post-extraction.
