Tooth Removal / Extractions

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.

If you need a tooth extraction because of a dental emergency, call Nashua Family Dentistry at 603-546-7460 right away. If you call us by noon, our doctors can see you for a same-day appointment. When time isn’t an issue, you can book a visit to our Nashua, NH dentist office using our online form.
