Tooth Extractions

Dentist in Hanover

Dental (tooth) extractions may be necessary when a tooth is loose or infected and causing severe pain. Our pain management techniques and advances in anesthesia have made dental extractions comfortable and almost painless.

After this procedure, be sure to rest and follow the doctor’s orders. You can use a cold compress to keep down swelling and reduce pain. Also, limit yourself to soft foods for the next couple days after surgery. Avoid drinking from a straw and smoking to prevent dry sockets.

Contact our dental office in Hanover if you have any questions about our general dentistry.
