Tooth Extractions

Dentists and patients alike never want to hear that a tooth has to be removed! But when damaged, decayed, improperly grown or impacted teeth cause us pain and discomfort, sometimes we have to have a tooth extraction to restore our health and comfort. Of course, Dr. Bloom will discuss with you first if crowns, root canal therapy, or fillings can effectively restore teeth before a tooth extraction becomes necessary. We’ll partner with you to find a custom treatment option that leaves your smile feeling great no matter your dental need.

Reasons for Pulling Teeth

  • irreparable decay or damage of the tooth
  • impacted teeth that don’t grow normally into the mouth
  • overcrowding from too many teeth
  • decay of the the jawbone and loosening of teeth
  • decay from gum disease and periodontal disease

Patients whose immune systems are compromised, such as by illness or medical procedures, may also benefit from tooth extraction to diminish the health risks involved in infection.

With proper care and guided treatment, removing problem teeth not only eliminates the threat of complications developing in the mouth and surrounding teeth but will improve your overall quality of oral health.

What to Expect From Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is performed efficiently and virtually painlessly in as little as one visit. Patients nervous about the extraction procedure will be relieved to know that a variety of sedation methods can be administered, making the experience feel like a distant, relaxed memory.

After You’ve had a Tooth Extracted

While the process of extraction is very safe when performed by a professionally trained dentist, complications such as infection may still arise.Depending on your risks for infection and current health status you may be prescribed antibiotics. It is important to let Dr. Bloom know your medical history prior to the extraction as certain health conditions like an impaired immune system or taking certain medications may impede your healing process.

After your tooth has been successfully removed and you’ve returned home, it is important to limit your activity for the rest of the day and to apply ice to the affected area to reduce swelling. We recommend soft foods like soup or applesauce the day after the extraction, gradually introducing solid foods over time. When lying down, prop your head up with pillows to reduce the risks of bleeding and ensure rapid recovery.

If you have any concerns about your dental health or believe you may need a tooth extraction, make an appointment with Dr. Bloom at Bloom Family Dental in Sheboygan, WI.

“Dr. Bloom flawlessly put in 3 fillings for me. He and the staff made me feel very comfortable with their level of professionalism and friendliness. From the front desk staff to the hygienists and assistants, I felt well taken care of. Dr. Bloom answered all of my questions and was kind enough to share exactly what kind of work I would be having done and why. I would recommend Bloom Family Dental to anyone who values a dentist who will treat you like family.” –Kyle G.
