Types of Tooth Extraction
Simple Tooth Extraction
A simple tooth extraction procedure commonly used for visible and easily accessible teeth. It can be done without the need to access the teeth below the gum line. With simple extraction, our dentists will use the elevator tool to gently loosen the tooth from the socket and remove the tooth entirely from your mouth. Our experienced dental team excels in making this process quick, painless, and efficient.
Surgical Tooth Extraction
This procedure is usually employed in complicated cases, such as broken or impacted teeth. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require specialized attention due to their position at the back of the mouth. Our dental experts at Tanishas Dental Wellness are well-versed in surgical procedures, ensuring that even challenging extractions are carried out with precision and minimal pain and discomfort.

Preparing for Tooth Extraction
Understanding the Process
Tooth Extraction is a dental procedure in which your tooth is removed from its socket. While the idea of getting a tooth extracted may seem scary, there are several reasons why dental extraction is recommended. Our dentists at Tanishas make sure that the procedure gets carried out with precision and minimal pain.
There are several reasons why dental extraction becomes necessary. Severe decay cannot be treated with procedures like fillings or dental crowns.
Also, in case of overcrowding, and especially when preparing for an orthodontic treatment like braces. To get proper alignment, orthodontists need the necessary space to ensure that the remaining teeth are well-positioned for improved functionality and aesthetics.
The duration of the procedure varies based on factors such as the complexity of extraction, tooth location, and your overall oral health. The procedure usually takes around 20 to 40 minutes. However, if you have more complex cases, such as impacted wisdom teeth, that may require additional time.
Aftercare and Recovery
While the procedure is performed under anesthesia to minimize discomfort, you may experience some pain and discomfort afterward. The severity varies from person to person. After a tooth extraction, it is normal to experience some bleeding. Your dentistry will provide you with gauze to bite down for 30-40 min, which helps blood clot formation to stop bleeding. The blood clot is crucial for proper bleeding.
Apply a cold pack to the affected area that helps in reducing swelling and alleviate pain. Be sure to follow your dentist’s medication to manage pain and care instructions.
Your dentists may receive over-the-counter pain relievers. It’s crucial to follow the prescribed dodge and avoid self-medication.
Avoid brushing the extraction site for the first 24 hours of the procedure. After a day, you can gently clean the surrounding teeth, being cautious around the extraction area. Your dentist will provide specific instructions when on how to resume regular oral hygiene practices.

Recovery and Eating Guidelines
Recovery times vary based on the individual complexity of the extraction. Generally, healing takes about 1-2 weeks, with complete healing and tissue remodeling. After you get the procedure done, stick to soft, easy-to-chew foods during the initial days of recovery. Opt for nutritious options such as mashed potatoes, yogurt, soup, and smoothies. These foods ensure you get essential nutrients without causing discomfort to the healing area. Read our detailed guide on what to eat after tooth extraction.
Avoid hard, crunchy, and spicy foods that may irritate the extraction site. Dairy products, while nutritious, can sometimes interfere with the formation of blood clots, so it’s advisable to limit their intake initially.
Smoking and alcohol consumption can hinder the healing process and increase the risk of complications. It’s strongly recommended to refrain from smoking and limit alcohol intake during the initial days of recovery. Following these guidelines will contribute to a smoother and faster recovery.
If bleeding persists after dental procedures, apply gentle pressure with a clean gauze or put on an ice pack, massage the cheek for 10-15 mins, and contact Tanishas Dental Wellness team immediately for guidance on managing the situation.
Post-extraction discomfort typically lasts a few days. We’ll provide pain management strategies, ensuring you’re informed and comfortable throughout the recovery process.
