Painless Tooth Extractions
in El Paso, TX
In the unfortunate event, a tooth needs to be extracted, you are in good hands. When a tooth is severely damaged, or it is trapped within the jaw bone beneath the gums, tooth extraction may be required. Generally, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth. At Green Family Dental we offer oral sedation to minimize anxiety and pain.

If we cannot revive your tooth with a restorative dentistry procedure, we will:

NEED A TOOTH EXTRACTION? HERE ARE SOME TIPS!
Being informed by the dentist that you need a tooth pulled can be intimidating. In fact, we here at Green Family Dental will try our best to avoid pulling your tooth with other procedures such as a filling, bridge, or crown. Keeping your natural teeth will always be the main goal, but sometimes a tooth will need to be pulled to avoid any further pain, infection, or shifting of your bite with wisdom teeth. If you or a loved one is facing this reality, you can expect our skilled team of highly trained dental professionals to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure. Here are a few tips to take into consideration when getting a tooth extraction.
TIPS FOR GETTING A TOOTH EXTRACTION
To ensure that you have a successful tooth extraction there are a few things that you’ll want to take into consideration:
- Depending on your doctor’s orders, you may have to fast for at least 8 hours or more before the tooth is pulled, so mentally preparing yourself for this fasting period will help you ease into the process.
- With wisdom tooth extractions, surgical removal of the teeth maybe needed. In case of having a tooth surgically removed remember that you will need at least 2 days to recover. So ask for the days off from work. The staff and dentist will provide you with proper before and after care for the removed teeth.
- After the extraction you’ll want to bite down softly on the gauze that your dentist applies to the exposed gum to minimize bleeding.
- Make sure to choose softer foods for at least 2 days after the procedure. Also, avoid hot foods or drinks to avoid any damage to the affected extraction area.
