Tooth Extractions in Frisco, TX

It is always a good idea to maintain and restore your natural teeth as much as possible. There may be times, however, when a dentist will need to extract your tooth. If you need a tooth extraction, then contact Frisco Dental. We offer safe and pain-free tooth extractions at our dental clinic.

We will be happy to sit down with you and answer your questions as well as discuss your options, including tooth extractions in Frisco, TX. We are here to help relieve your pain and find a solution to your current medical condition.

Why Pull a Tooth?

There are several reasons why tooth extraction is a good idea, including:

  • Too many teeth or an additional tooth growing where it does not belong
  • Tooth decay that has led to an infection
  • The risk of infection due to illness or a medical condition
  • Periodontal gum disease

What to Expect During a Tooth Extraction

Before pulling your tooth, your dentist will inject an anesthetic to deaden the area and lessen the immediate pain. The level of anesthetic we use depends on the severity of the extraction and how much pain we anticipate you will experience.

If you have an impacted tooth, we will cut away the gum and the bone tissue. From there, we will use forceps to grasp the tooth and pull it out. If the tooth is difficult to pull out, we may have to remove it a few pieces at a time. Our goal will be to remove the entire tooth and the root for a clean extraction.

Be Aware of Your Current Health Condition

Although tooth extractions are relatively safe, harmful bacteria can enter your bloodstream due to the nature of the procedure. Therefore, you should tell your dentist if you have pre-existing medical conditions, such as:

  • Bacterial endocarditis
  • Artificial heart valves
  • Hip replacement
  • Congenital heart defect
  • Liver disease
  • Poor immune system

Your dentist will either make the necessary preparations to avoid further complications or offer a different solution based on your medical condition.

What to Do After Tooth Extractions

Below are some instructions that you will need to follow after a tooth extraction:

  • Bleeding: Bleeding is a natural response to tooth extraction. For this reason, we will place gauze in the open area for 30 to 45 minutes after the removal. As the extraction site heals, less blood will leak. If heavy bleeding continues long after the removal, then contact your dentist.
  • Cleaning Your Mouth: Allow your mouth to heal at least 24 hours after the extraction before attempting to clean the area. Rinse your mouth out with salt water over the next 24 to 48 hours after the removal. Rinse your mouth out gently to keep the blood clot from loosening. Try to avoid using mouthwash during the healing period.
  • Eating Food and Drinking Beverages: On the day of the extraction, drink liquids and eat soft food. Avoid hot liquids or anything that has alcohol in it. Avoid using a straw, as this can irritate the blood clot. You can eat solid food 24 hours after the extraction, but try to chew your food on the other side of your mouth for the first few days.

Best dental team in Texas!!! I have been to them now for 2 dental emergencies and in both cases they have been phenomenal. on my last visit, I needed 2 teeth pulled. after the 1st tooth, my anxiety was getting the best of me (I have very bad dental anxiety) and before I even said anything, Dr. E offered to reschedule my other tooth for another day. not only do they do amazing work, but they actively listen to their patients and work with them. i will recommend them to everyone i know, and I'm certainly not going anywhere else!
