Our permanent teeth are supposed to be our lifetime partners, but, sometimes, pulling a tooth is necessary. Dr. Naman B. Patel is here to improve your oral health and eliminate future problems by offering a tooth extraction in Gilbert, Arizona.
There are many reasons why you might need to pull a tooth, and some of those reasons include:
- Having a tooth that is severely damaged by decay or trauma
- Suffering from a crowded mouth
- Having a high risk of infection
- Having a severe infection
- Suffering from periodontal disease
During the operation, your dentist at Island Dental will provide a local anesthetic and sedative to numb the area surrounding the tooth and to also keep you calm and relaxed throughout the extraction. After your tooth has been pulled, we ask that you take very good care of the area where the tooth was pulled. This would include eating soft foods, keeping the blood clot intact, and refraining from rubbing the area with your tongue. We also recommend resting for 24 hours after your tooth has been pulled and taking the painkillers your dentist prescribes to you. If you relax, avoid smoking, and carefully brush your teeth, your post-operation recovery will go smoothly.
