Tooth Extraction

Preparing for tooth extraction can be excruciating, dreading the day of your appointment as it comes closer to arriving. The anxiety and fear you feel as you approach the extraction date should be the worst of it.

Generally, tooth extractions in Greeley, CO are much less unpleasant than most patients anticipate. 

Local Anesthetic

If pain persists before or during the procedure, let your dentist know. It is our priority to make sure that your experience is as pleasant as possible. 

This doesn't mean you won't feel anything at all, though. Removing teeth requires placing a lot of pressure on the jaw and tooth, as well as a rocking motion to pull the tooth out. Hearing and feeling the pressure the dentist applies and the sounds it makes can be alarming, but you should not experience significant pain. 

After the Extraction Procedure

The patient's post-extraction is often less painful than anticipated too. Your dentist in Greeley will generally prescribe an over-the-counter painkiller to help with the first few days afterward. Because the tooth, which contained all the nerve endings, has been removed, the tooth no longer sends signals to the brain, eliminating the pain the tooth may have been causing altogether.
