At Riverdale Dental in Toronto, tooth extractions are important for patients who have a poorly positioned tooth, badly decayed teeth, abscesses, serious gum disease or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.
Is a tooth extraction painful?
At Riverdale Dental, tooth extractions are no longer a painful process. We place a local anaesthetic to the surrounding area of the tooth to minimize discomfort.
Using precise instruments, we then carefully remove the tooth. If you feel any discomfort during your treatment, our diligent dental team will act accordingly.
What happens after extraction?
During your tooth extraction appointment, our attentive 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.
