Tooth Extractions - East Hartford, CT

Gentle Tooth Removal to Promote Long-Term Oral Health

We strive to help each patient retain their natural teeth for as long as possible — ideally, for their entire lifetime. In some cases, however, it becomes necessary to remove one or more teeth for the sake of the patient’s long-term oral health. When that happens, we perform extractions as gently and comfortably as possible. We also offer state-of-the-art tooth replacement when appropriate to help individuals regain full dental function and avoid the embarrassment of missing teeth.

Why Choose Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut for Tooth Extractions?

What to Expect with Tooth Extractions

When you visit our office, we will first thoroughly examine your mouth to determine whether an extraction is truly necessary. If we determine that it is, we will begin the procedure by using anesthesia and perhaps sedation to make sure you are comfortable. Then, we will forceps to grip the tooth and rock it back and forth so as to break the ligaments that attach it to the surrounding bone. Following a tooth extraction, OTC pain relievers, ice, and gauze can help control any pain and bleeding. Most patients are able to resume their normal routines within a few days of getting a tooth extracted.
