Tooth Extractions Etobicoke

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

There are various reasons why a tooth might need to be removed. The most common is tooth decay, where the damage is too severe to fix. Other reasons include impacted or troublesome wisdom teeth and making room for braces in some cases.

When Extraction is Needed

We always try to save a tooth if we can, but sometimes extraction is the best option if the damage is too extensive.

Common reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • Crowded teeth, where removing one tooth helps others to line up properly
  • Risk of infection from gum disease
  • Severe decay that has damaged the inside of the tooth
  • Roots that are cracked and can't be fixed

What Happens During Extraction?

We'll give you anesthesia to make sure you don't feel any pain during the procedure. Sometimes we may need to break a tooth into smaller pieces to extract it more easily. Afterward, we'll use stitches to close the wound.

What to Tell Your Dentist Before Extraction

It's important to tell your dentist about any medical conditions or medications you're taking. This helps ensure the procedure goes smoothly and safely.

Common Questions About Extraction

  • Can I go back to work afterward? It's best to take the day off to rest and let the area heal.
  • How long will it hurt? Pain usually goes away after a few days. If it gets worse, contact our office and we will see you for a follow-up appointment.
  • What can I eat? Stick to soft foods at first to avoid hurting the area. Don't use straws, as they can cause bleeding and potentially a ‘dry socket.’
