  • Your tooth has died or is beyond saving

  • Your tooth has broken off too much below the gumline
  • You have an existing, failed treatment with continuous pain
  • You have a vertical root fracture that goes under the gums

What to Expect After Oral Surgery

A blood clot forms where your tooth was pulled out. The clot must stay there for the healing process to begin. You’ll get several post-op instructions to follow so you can keep the clot in place. This will prevent the clot from dislodging and causing a painful condition called dry socket. 

After you get a tooth pulled, it’s important that you: 

  • Don’t spit
  • Don’t smoke
  • Don’t rinse with water
  • Don’t use a straw or a sucking motion
  • Don’t bend down or have your head down
  • Take your prescribed medications as instructed by the doctor
  • Call the clinic if you have any concerns once you leave the office
  • Keep light pressure on the extraction site with gauze until the bleeding subsides

It is typical to have pain, swelling, bruising, and continued bleeding or “oozing”.

Different Types of Extractions

There are different types of tooth extractions. The one that’s used will depend on what the problem is. Infections can make surgery more complicated. And sometimes you’ll need antibiotics for a couple of days before the tooth is pulled. This is to help calm down the tissues surrounding the tooth.

  • Simple Extractions - When your tooth has fully erupted and the dentist can easily remove it, such as a front tooth
  • Surgical Extraction - When your tooth has fully erupted but is in a more difficult location, such as the back of your mouth
  • Partial Bony Extraction - When part of your tooth is still under the bone and hasn’t fully erupted
  • Full Bony Extraction - When your whole tooth is still under the bone and hasn’t erupted
  • Root Tip Extraction - When only the roots are left to remove because the crown of your tooth is no longer attached

In all cases, the dentist will give you a local anesthetic to prevent pain. 

After removing your tooth, your bone now has a hole where the tooth once was.  Our dentists encourage the use of bone grafts. This makes sure your bone will get stronger and gives you more options for the replacement of your tooth.
