Extractions At Modern Dental Care

Do you have a broken tooth that is causing ongoing discomfort and pain? You’ll likely require a dental extraction if the dentist deems your tooth to be beyond restoration. If your tooth needs to be removed, our dentists at Modern Dental Care will carefully discuss the next steps with you.

Extractions are commonly a daunting aspect to most people as the procedure is quite invasive. At Modern Dental Care, we provide our patients with a dedicated team to perform extractions in Las Vegas, NV.

What Is The Extraction Process?

At Modern Dental Care, our primary goal is for our patients to be as comfortable as possible during their dental procedure. Our dentists will administer a local anesthetic before starting the extraction process. Extractions involve applying a special gel known as topical anesthetic around the affected area’s gum. This prepares the area to ensure our patients feel zero pain during the procedure.

Once the dentist is fully satisfied the area is numb, they will proceed with the removal of the tooth. Usually, the dentist will gently ease the tooth from its socket and safely remove it.

Post-operative Care Instructions:

After your extraction, the dentist will ask you to bite down on the gauze for 45 minutes. Other instructions include:

  • Do not rinse or spit for 24 hours.
  • Keep your fingers or tongue away from the extraction area.
  • Use ice packs on the surgical area for the first 48 hours.
  • For mild discomfort, take ibuprofen every 3-4 hours.
  • Do not smoke for at least five days post-extraction.
