Most folks don’t exactly welcome a tooth extraction. But the skilled doctors at Nashua Family Dentistry make tooth removal quick, safe, and efficient – if not exactly pleasant.
Don’t avoid a needed tooth extraction! Doing so can create larger problems in the future. Call our Nashua, NH dentist office at 603-546-7460 to find out why tooth removal is no big deal.
Dental Technology Eases Extraction
Without complications, tooth extraction is typically a quick procedure. And we minimize the chances of complications by using dental technology that gives us a very complete view of your teeth and mouth.
With our cone beam CT scanner, for example, we can view your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. So we can avoid nerve endings when we remove your tooth.
Keeping You Comfortable During Tooth Extraction
Your comfort is a top priority for our caring team. We’ll talk to you about what we can do to ensure your comfort, then do our best to accommodate you. We can often offer a longer appointment time, for example.
We thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing!
We also offer amenities including:
- Headphones so you can listen to music during your procedure
- Soft blankets and pillows
And to completely relax you during your tooth extraction, you can get dental sedation.
Providing You With Post-Extraction Tooth Care
We’ll give you complete instructions for tooth care following your extraction to minimize any discomfort you may feel. Our usual instructions include:
- Take your prescribed pain medication and/or antibiotic as directed. Take the full dosage.
- Take it easy for a day or so.
- If you experience swelling, use a cold pack.
- Avoid touching the extraction site.
- After 24 hours, gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water a few times a day. Use about a teaspoon of salt for every eight ounces of water.
