Tooth extractions can be necessary for many reasons. Some teeth are too diseased to save. There are times when a tooth is too damaged.
We will always do a thorough examination with x-rays to determine the best course of actions for you. We will go through your options so we can make the right decision for you and your mouth. Dr. Wellik may recommend an oral surgeon to extract your tooth if it is complicated or requires special care.
Upon removal of your tooth, the aftercare of your mouth is important. We will go over the correct way to care for your mouth after a tooth removal. Your mouth may be sore for a few days as it heals. We do not recommend smoking, drinking with a straw, or eating foods that may aggravate your mouth. We are here for you if you have any problems after surgery.
If you think you may need an extraction, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (512) 451-5183.
