Teeth Extractions in
Allen, Texas

Teeth extractions are provided when teeth are so severely damaged that they must be removed from the mouth. This may be due to oral injury or very poor oral care practices. An extraction may also be performed when a tooth is growing in such a way that it is disrupting the well-being of other teeth.

Teeth Extractions in Allen

If we decide that a tooth extraction is necessary, we will start by taking digital X-rays of the structure and its surrounding area. This will allow us to determine the safest and most effective way to pull the tooth. Before starting, we will provide any necessary sedation. In addition to local anesthesia, we can also provide IV sedation or oral sedation if needed.

The majority of patients who receive teeth extractions do not feel any pain during the procedure. Additionally, the removal itself is very quick. Once the tooth is out, we must control any bleeding that occurs. The patient will be asked to bite down on a piece of gauze for 30 to 45 minutes. This will allow a blood clot to form at the extraction site. The patient must be very careful not to disturb the blood clot in the days following the procedure. We ask that patients refrain from smoking, using straws, consuming drugs and alcohol and participating in intense exercise for at least 24 hours following a tooth extraction for this reason.

During the healing process, the patient should apply an ice pack on the outer cheek for up to 20 minutes at a time. This will help to reduce swelling. After the swelling has gone down, a warm compress can be applied to the area for comfort. At this time, gentle warm salt water rinses can also be performed. These rinses will work to keep the extraction site clean and reduce the likelihood of any potentially harmful oral infections from occurring.

In addition to standard teeth extractions, Allen Dental Center performs wisdom teeth removal procedures. A person’s third molars, or wisdom teeth, will usually start to emerge when they are in their late teenage years or early twenties. The wisdom teeth grow in the back of the mouth, often at a much more slanted angle than other teeth. The vast majority of people have these teeth removed, as they will almost always cause major disruptions to the other teeth if they are allowed to develop uninterrupted.

Great dentist office. I have been coming here for years! They have a great team of dentists, hygienists and office staff who treat you well. They care for your teeth and recommend only things that will help you keep your teeth lasting their longest. They do not try to sell you extras that you may not want or need. They book up fast but in an emergency they are there for me. Thanks Allen Dental!
