Caring For an Extracted Tooth

Learn how to care for a tooth extraction in South Pasadena after the fact

Having a tooth pulled isn’t as bad as you might think. We recommend you rest for 24 hours after your surgery, and most people continue their normal routines after that time. While the affected area is healing, it is a good idea to eat a soft diet and drink plenty of liquids, but not through a straw. If the area is bleeding, you can apply gauze to help slow it down while keeping your head elevated. When caring for the extracted tooth, you also have to remember to take care of the rest of your teeth too. Remember to brush and floss all of your other teeth, but be careful not to harm the area around the extraction. Once the extraction is complete and has time to heal, you can discuss further options for treating the missing tooth’s area with one of our doctors.

Is An Extraction the Best Option?

A tooth extraction in South Pasadena is usually a last resort option

There are quite a few instances which require the consideration of a tooth extraction. Most commonly people think of severe damage or tooth decay as a good reason to pull a tooth. This may be the case, but it isn’t always the best option. If your damage or decay isn’t that severe, we may suggest a filling, crown, root canal or other dental service. At South Pasadena Dental Group we believe the best option is always to save your natural tooth if at all possible. When it becomes impossible to save the damaged tooth, then an extraction is chosen. Sometimes patients will voluntarily request tooth extractions to help with cosmetic appearances. Pulling a tooth can help prevent crowding of your teeth. Most of the time, those who voluntarily remove a tooth are doing it for cosmetic reasons or crowding. Another instance where an extraction may be necessary is severe infection from gum disease or bacteria in the mouth. This can cause one to even have their teeth fall out. If you think a tooth extraction in South Pasadena or other dental service at South Pasadena Dental Group may be right for you, please give us a call at (626) 441-6234 to schedule your appointment.

"How To Fill the Space of a Missing Tooth"

"How To Fill the Space of a Missing Tooth"

A tooth extraction in South Pasadena creates a space for other dental proceudres

"After having a tooth pulled, you are probably wondering what you can do to fill the space left behind. There are a few procedures we offer at South Pasadena Dental Group that can help. The most common solution is a dental implant. Installing a dental implant will help your smile look just as great as it did before. If you have multiple teeth pulled, I would suggest trying out our partial dentures. You can also receive a full set of dentures if all of your teeth have been pulled. However, dental implants are the best option for treatment when considering only one space for a tooth. They are bonded to your jawbone, which means they are guaranteed to last."
