Dental Extractions in Elyria
Waiting to have a tooth extracted can cause more damage. A tooth that needs to be removed can cause abscesses if you wait too long. Wisdom teeth that grow in crooked often cause crowding and crookedness in your other teeth, and sometimes they will even break your back molars! At Signature Smiles Dental, we take X-rays to determine how your wisdom teeth are growing in, and will guide you towards a treatment, such as removal, to make sure they don’t grow in and damage your other teeth.

Tooth Extraction FAQs
Why would I need a tooth extraction?
There are many reasons a tooth extraction could become necessary, tooth decay being one of the most common reasons. If a root canal can’t be performed to restore a decayed tooth or it isn’t done in time, the tooth will have to be extracted. If a tooth breaks or is damaged due to trauma of some kind, the best option may be to extract and replace it.
Advanced periodontal disease can cause teeth to become loose, and in certain circumstances, the tooth should be extracted and replaced with a dental restoration. Teeth are also extracted due to overcrowding, which can happen with any tooth, but it is a very common reason for wisdom teeth to require extraction.
Can I be sedated during a tooth extraction?
If you would like to utilize sedation during your tooth extraction procedure, our team can absolutely make that happen for you. For some extractions, all that is really necessary is a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding area. For other procedures, like removing impacted wisdom teeth, sedation is highly recommended. If you have any questions, feel free to ask our team about our sedation options or visit our sedation page.
When can I eat after a tooth extraction?
Aftercare depends on the type of treatment, but most of the time you are free to eat an hour or two after the procedure. You will want to chew using the other side of your mouth and stick to very soft foods and liquids, like yogurt, applesauce, soup, mashed potatoes, and smoothies. It is very important that you do not use a straw to drink anything for at least one week after the extraction, as this can cause a painful complication called a dry socket.
Are tooth extractions covered by dental insurance?
Many plans offer full or partial coverage for tooth extractions. Our dental savers plan can help you save on restorative care including any dental extractions you may need, and Signature Smiles also accepts payment plans through CareCredit®.
