More About Tooth Extraction


Tooth extraction procedures are used to treat severe oral health issues. If your teeth are badly damaged due to decay, trauma, crowding or infection, it may be necessary to have a tooth extraction. Before an extraction, restorative options such as root canal therapy, dental crowns and tooth fillings are considered. 

Modern advancements in dentistry make the tooth extraction process considerably less invasive and painful than in the past. As a team of skilled professionals, our goal is to help ease stress and provide comfort throughout the process.\

Sometimes extractions are a necessary part of dental care: when we can’t repair a tooth because it’s too decayed or damaged, or when one tooth is crowding out your other teeth.

Before we extract a tooth, we consider all of your options and talk them through with you. With modern advancements in dentistry, we are able to save natural teeth much more frequently, using restorative procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns and fillings. And when we can’t save a tooth, those same advancements make the process less invasive and less painful than it used to be, with faster recovery times.

Tips for before your procedure:

  • Ask questions – being “in the know” helps patients feel more in control.
  • Be aware of the recommendations for aftercare.

Tips for a smooth tooth extraction recovery:

  • Avoid smoking for the recommended amount of time following your tooth extraction.
  • Avoid rinsing your mouth vigorously.
  • Avoid drinking through a straw for 24 hours.
  • Follow the diet your dentist suggests.

We know that extractions make some patients feel anxious, so we do everything we can to make sure that you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. We talk you through the process so that you know what’s going to happen, listen to your concerns, and treat you with gentleness and care.

We do not extract wisdom teeth in our Richmond dental office. Instead, we refer you to a trusted oral surgeon who can offer a range of sedation options, including general anesthesia.
