The Tooth Extraction Procedure
Before your extraction procedure, we will take x-rays of your teeth and jaw to determine which type of extraction you require. We will also review your medical and dental history. If you require wisdom teeth removal, we will take a panoramic x-ray. With panoramic x-rays, we are able to determine where your teeth are coming in and how they will be removed.
Throughout the treatment process, we ensure that our patients feel comfortable and confident in our care.
Following your treatment, we recommend that you avoid hard or chewy foods. The extraction site will clot over 2 to 3 days and it will take several weeks for the sockets to fully heal.
