The Best In Tooth Extraction Corpus Christi

We may have some problems with a tooth that gives us too much pain, and the only resort that we could do is undergo a tooth extraction. Wisdom Teeth Removal Corpus Christi provides tooth extraction procedure. Our dentists use up-to-date methodology, and we have a standard practice because we do not want you to have complications. We want you to be safe when pulling your tooth out, so we will ask you if you have any medical conditions. After getting the results, we will be setting up your expectations, including the duration of the extraction and whether there will be antibiotics after the extraction.

Tooth extraction has two types; simple and surgical extractions. Simple extractions use local anesthesia to make the surrounding part of the tooth numb. You will feel discomfort instead of pain. In comparison, surgical extractions use both local and general anesthesia. The dentist will cut an incision into your gum to remove the bone around your tooth.

For Best Results

We want what is best for you, so to ensure the treatment’s best quality, we made a list of what you need to do:

  • Do not smoke before the extraction
  • Let your dentist know about any of your past and current medical conditions.
  • Have someone drive you home if you receive anesthesia.
  • Inform the dentist if you were nauseous the night before as you may have different anesthesia.

  • Do not touch the wounded part.
  • Do not vigorously rinse your mouth.
  • Put ice on your cheeks outside the surgery area.
  • Take the medication prescribed by the dentist.

After the surgery, you have to follow the dentist’s advice on the following:

  • Bleeding. It is common to have excessive bleeding right after the surgery. Avoid spitting the blood so it would help form a blood clot.
  • Food. Only eat soft foods and adjust day by day or as your dentist advised.
  • No Smoking. Avoid tobacco use for at least 72 hours as it may infect the open wound
  • Water. Drink plenty of water in the first 24 hours. Avoid using straw as well in the first week
  • Pain Reliever. You can take pain reliever medicine as prescribed by doctors. But if you can tolerate the pain, we advise you to  endure it.
