Teeth Extractions

When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be pulled, or extracted. This usually happens when a tooth has a severe infection or very deep cavity. Teeth extremely damaged due to this decay, fracture or infection require their removal. Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before, thanks to state-of-the-art anesthetics and sedatives. In many cases, a patient who has tooth pulled experiences little or no discomfort, and only minor bleeding. Smoking, vigorous brushing and rinsing, and drinking liquids through straws are discouraged during the post-operative period because they hinder healing and may cause the wound to open. Cold compresses applied to the outside cheek near the extraction area can help reduce any swelling and promote faster healing.

If you believe you are in need of an extraction, contact our office at (919) 355-5331 to schedule a consultation.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, and absolutely wonderful. As a person who has, for years, experienced anxiety when faced with trips to the dentist, I am delighted to have found this practice. Not only is Dr. Patel personable and likable, he very clearly explains his recommendations and uses up-to-date x-ray and photo technology to show his patients what he sees during his thorough examination."

W. O.

"My dental experience with Dr. Patel has been nothing but amazing. He took time to explain any concerns and questions i had. He actually took time to make me understand the cause of my problem and told me what to do to prevent it from happening again. Most doctors just fix the problem and let you go until it happens again. He is very gentle and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend going to Dr. Patel. Going to his office feels like I'm stepping in a spa at first. All the dental anxiety is forgot as soon as i see Dr. Patel's caring personality."
