Winchester, VA Pediatric Dentist
Dental extractions may be necessary when a tooth is loose or infected and causing severe pain. Our pain management techniques and advances in anesthesia have made dental extractions comfortable and almost painless.
After this procedure, be sure to rest and follow the doctor’s orders. You can use a cold compress to keep down swelling and reduce pain. Also, limit yourself to soft foods for the next couple days after surgery. Avoid drinking from a straw to prevent dry sockets.
Extraction Site Preservation
When removing a tooth, it is important to consider what will be done with the empty space after that tooth is removed. If nothing is done with the extraction site, the jaw bone will degenerate and change shape during the healing process.
We will discuss your treatment plan thoroughly with you to inform you of every step of the process. We will make sure to schedule follow up appointments with Dr. Agarwal to ensure proper care for your extraction site.
