Tooth Extractions

Efficient and Effective Removal Process

Proper oral hygiene is essential to prevent tooth loss, which can significantly impact your appearance and oral health. However, despite your best efforts, you may still require dental extraction. You may require tooth extractions in the following situations:

  • Infection in your gums or tooth
  • Severe tooth decay or damage
  • Trauma to the tooth
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain or shifting of other teeth
  • Visible trauma to the tooth
  • Severe gum disease or root damage

After examining your teeth and completing other treatments, we may advise oral surgery to remove your tooth. First, we will use a 3D scan or X-rays to determine the tooth’s position and shape and the state of the surrounding bone structure. We may send you to an oral surgeon in Blue Earth, Martin County, Sherburn, Welcome, Fairmont, or Truman, MN, for more challenging cases requiring general anesthesia.

A tooth extraction involves carefully removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Our skilled dentist will start by thoroughly numbing the area with a local anesthetic to ensure you feel minimal discomfort throughout the procedure. We use advanced techniques and instruments to gently loosen and remove the tooth. After the extraction, we may provide post-operative care instructions to promote healing and prevent complications.

After dental extraction, you must keep the area clean to prevent infection. You will first receive moist, sterile gauze to bite on for the first 10 minutes to reduce bleeding until clotting occurs. Over the next 24 hours, don’t smoke, brush your teeth at the extraction site, or vigorously rinse your mouth.

You should expect some pain and discomfort, but ice packs and pain medication can reduce these feelings. Apply ice packs no longer than 15 minutes at a time. Your discomfort should reduce in about three days and completely go away over the following few days. Contact our office immediately if you experience excessive bleeding, swelling, a fever, or severe pain for long periods.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom Teeth: Development, Issues, and Sedation Options

Wisdom teeth, known as third molars, usually emerge between 16 and 20 years old. These teeth are beneficial when they are in the proper position and healthy. However, they often cause issues due to limited space in the mouth, leading to pain, infection, or shifting of other teeth. Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure to prevent these complications and maintain oral health. Our skilled oral surgeons at Birch Street Dentistry have the expertise to perform wisdom teeth removals with precision and care, ensuring a smooth recovery process. Most patients prefer to have sedation for wisdom teeth. We will provide the names of area Oral Surgeons.
