Gentle Tooth Removal to Support Long-Term Oral Health

We always strive to help our patients retain their natural teeth for a lifetime. In some instances, however, it is necessary to remove one or more teeth for the sake of an individual’s long-term oral health. If that becomes true in your case, we will perform tooth extractions in our Northborough, MA dental office as gently and comfortably as possible. Later on, we may be able to replace the lost tooth with a dental implant or other type of prosthetic.

Why Choose Northborough Dental Associates for Tooth Extractions?

The Tooth Extraction Process

For a non-surgical extraction, we numb the area around the tooth to ensure that the patient is comfortable. We may also offer sedation. During the extraction procedure itself, we grip the tooth with forceps and rock it back and forth in order to sever the ligaments that connect it to the bone. After the tooth is out, we use gauze to control any bleeding. Over the counter pain relievers should be enough to soothe any post-procedure discomfort. Most patients are able to resume their normal routine after just a few days of recovery time.
