When A Dental Extraction Is Necessary
In some cases, extracting a tooth is the best treatment option to reduce crowding, prepare for dentures, or eliminate a dead or dying tooth. When a tooth is lost, it can sometimes compromise the adjacent teeth and bone, causing shifting and a misalignment. To prevent this, your experienced team at Bright 32 will review the entire surgical and restorative process so you know all of your tooth replacement options. While we always attempt to save your natural tooth, there are situations when a dental extraction is needed to help restore your dental and overall well-being.
Regardless of your needs, Bright 32 Family Dentistry is confident in providing you with the most gentle and compassionate care to get you back to smiling again. Dr. Brenner will take the time to discuss all of your needs and make sure you are comfortable with every choice.
Tooth Extractions at Bright 32
A tooth extraction is a common procedure and Dr. Brenner has over 20 years of experience in providing patients with the proper care. If it is determined that you need an extraction, Dr. Brenner will administer analgesic or sedation to keep you comfortable throughout your procedure and will then carefully remove all parts of the tooth or teeth scheduled for extraction. When a tooth goes missing, it is important to address all of your dental needs so your missing tooth does not create additional problems. Many times, a bone filling material will need to be placed in the extraction site to promote proper healing. Afterwards, our team at Bright 32 will provide you with postoperative instructions to closely follow so that your gums will heal promptly.
If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, swollen gums surrounding just one or two teeth, pain that worsens when you are biting or chewing, or feel like an extraction may be the right solution, schedule a virtual consultation with Dr. Brenner from the comfort of your home so he can help guide you with the right dental care options.

What can I expect following a dental extraction?
It is expected to experience temporary slight bleeding, swelling, numbness and discomfort. Fortunately, most people are comfortable to resume normal activities within one to two days. You should avoid rinsing, spitting or smoking following surgery. You can take over-the-counter medications for pain relief or medication we prescribe if necessary.
