Tooth Extractions - Cedar Park, Texas

This is probably the least enjoyable thing to do when going to the dentist. We realize
a tooth extraction is not high on the list of fun things to do at the dentist. We get it.
There can be a number of reasons why a tooth extraction might be considered. These range from
impacted wisdom teeth, preparation for braces, tooth decay and gum disease.
A tooth extraction procedure begins with applying a general or local anesthetic, which will do the job
of numbing the tooth and surrounding area. Once numb, the tooth can safely be extracted. At that point
it will be determined if you need stitches or not.
The wonderful thing about a tooth extraction procedure is that the recovery time is typically only a few
days. Plus there are a few things you can do to help speed up or ease the recovery, which includes rinsing
your mouth with salt water and regularly changing the gauze dressings.
If you've been putting off having a tooth extraction there's no reason to silently endure the pain
