Tooth Extractions in Toronto
At Riverdale Dental in Toronto, tooth extractions are important for patients who have poorly positioned teeth, badly decayed teeth, abscesses, serious gum disease or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
Is a tooth extraction painful?
At Riverdale Dental, tooth extractions can be painless. We place a local anesthetic on the surrounding area of the tooth to try and minimize discomfort.
Using precise instruments, we then remove the tooth. If you feel any discomfort during your treatment, our dental team will try and act accordingly.
What happens after extraction?
During your tooth extraction appointment, our team will explain post-op care instructions.
Eating soft foods like ice cream, pudding, soups, applesauce, and smoothies will usually help you in healing faster. You can slowly add solid foods back into your diet – just follow your post-surgical treatment plan.
