Tooth extractions in Kennesaw - what to expect

A tooth may need to be removed for several reasons. Some extractions are to make room in the mouth before orthodontic treatment. A tooth which has sustained extensive, irreparable damage may have to come out. Advanced gum disease impacts the health and stability of teeth. If this condition progresses to a point where a tooth is no longer adequately supported, it will need to be removed. We perform tooth extractions for patients in and around Kennesaw, after investigating other solutions to their dental problems.

The team at Thirty-Two Dental understands the patient’s need for peace of mind during all forms of treatment. We explain the process of tooth extraction and answer questions, before beginning treatment. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic, so all that is felt is a bit of pressure. The dentist uses a precise, gentle technique to gradually urge the tooth out, ensuring your comfort. In many cases, extractions are completed in just a few minutes. In situations where more than one tooth is being removed, treatment may take about an hour.

After a tooth has been removed, we place a gauze pad over the area. You bite down on it to transfer gentle pressure to the socket, reducing bleeding and prompting the formation of a clot. If necessary, the gauze may be changed, and then removed after just a few hours. Some soreness in the jaw may occur, due to the force used in extracting a tooth. Discomfort is easily managed with over the counter pain medication.

To promote healing at home:
  • Take a day or two to rest, putting off heightened physical activity until the socket has begun to heal.
  • Do not drink from a straw for the first day after tooth extraction.
  • Do not smoke or spit for a few days after treatment.
  • Eat foods that are cool and soft, such as yogurt or cottage cheese.
  • Rinse the mouth using only warm salt water for the first twenty-four hours. Plain water can inhibit clot formation. Rinse after eating or drinking.
Typically, healing from tooth extraction is quite uneventful, with new gum and bone tissue growing into the socket in a few weeks. When appropriate, we will discuss options for tooth replacement after an extraction.

We want you to have your best smile. Contact Thirty-Two Dental for an appointment.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
