Teeth Extractions in Trumbull, Connecticut

By removing a tooth, a patient can achieve quick healing, and if necessary, a proper replacement may be able to be provided later. Our experts work to ensure that the tooth extraction process is kept as easy and painless as possible so that the patient can focus on improving their oral health afterward.

The first step when removing a tooth is to take digital X-rays of the structure and the surrounding area. Our team will examine these images and decide on the best possible way to safely remove the tooth.

The top priority after removing a tooth is to control any bleeding that follows. To do this, the patient must bite down on a piece of gauze for roughly 30 to 45 minutes. This will create a blood clot at the extraction site. Once this blood clot has formed, it must not be disturbed. The patient will need to be particularly careful in the 24 hours following the procedure. We strongly advise patients to avoid using a straw, consuming drugs or alcohol, rinsing vigorously and participating in intensive exercise.

It usually takes a person a few days to recover from a tooth extraction. Applying an ice pack to the outer cheek near the extraction site can be helpful for reducing swelling. But remember, we only recommend using an ice pack for a maximum of 20 minutes at any given time. Once the swelling has reduced, the patient can apply a warm compress to the area. This will provide comfort as healing occurs.
