Dental Extractions in Davidson, NC

Dental Extractions

Ultimately, Dr. Dastrup’s goal is to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. In most cases, this is the best way to protect your oral health and smile.

Sometimes, however, a tooth may have severe damage, infection, or decay, and the best way to protect your health may be to remove the problem tooth. Dr. Dastrup has performed thousands of dental extractions right here in our Davidson, NC, dental office. In most cases, you will not need a referral to a specialist.

Dental Extractions Procedure

We never recommend an extraction unless you can benefit from the results. Dr. Dastrup will also recommend tooth-replacement options to restore your smile so you can still enjoy all the foods you love.

During the procedure, the area will be numbed so that you can remain calm and comfortable. Our Dastrup Dental team offers nothing but support and reassurance throughout the quick and efficient extraction process.

Dental Extractions FAQ

We believe that patients should have choices. Dr. Dastrup will go over all your options and help you make a decision that works best for you.

Common tooth replacement options include:

  • Dentures
  • Partial dentures
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Implant-retained dentures

It is essential to avoid smoking cigarettes or drinking out of a straw while you heal. The sucking motion can dislodge essential healing tissue, leaving you with a painful dry socket. You should also avoid chewing in the location where you had your surgery to protect it and keep it free from food debris. Rinsing with warm water can help keep the area clean.

Fortunately, oral tissue heals quickly, and you will feel like yourself within a week or so.

At Dastrup Dental, we remove symptomatic wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth often become impacted, meaning they can not emerge fully out of the gums due to your molars or because you simply do not have enough room at the back of your mouth. Impaction may be painful, pressing against your other teeth and causing your bite to shift.
